Triumph Speed Triple ABS Recall

Triumph Motorcycles has recalled 349 of its 2012-2013 Speed Triple ABS motorcycles due to transmission issues.

Triumph says the affected motorcycles, which were manufactured from June 2012 through January 2013, were built with an incorrect detent spring in the transmission.

Due to the incorrect spring, the Speed Triple ABS’ transmission may inadvertently jump out of gear while the motorcycle is moving, increasing the risk of a crash.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will install a revised detent spring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 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.
