Triumph has recalled 250 of the following motorcycles due to wheel-bearing issues: 2011-2012 Daytona 675 and Street Triple motorcycles, and 2012 Thunderbird and Thunderbird Storm motorcycles.

Triumph says the wheels on the effected motorcycles were assembled with bearings of an unknown quality. Wheel bearings of poor quality could fail unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a motorcycle crash.
