2013 Triumph Speed Triple Recall

Triumph has recalled 279 of its 2012-2013 Speed Triple naked motorcycles due to a faulty neutral safety switch.

Triumph says due to the incorrect engagement of the neutral switch and gear selector drum, the neutral light may remain illuminated despite the motorcycle actually being in gear.

If this occurs, the rider may think the motorcycle is in neutral while the motorcycle is in gear. This could lead to unintended movement of the motorcycle and a possible crash.

Triumph says it will notify owners, and dealers will correct the engagement of the neutral switch and gear selector drum, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of May 2013.

Owners may contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010 for more information.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or visit safercar.gov.
