Triumph Speed Triple & Daytona 675 Recall: Binding Throttle Cables

Triumph Recalls 2012 Speed Triple and Daytona 675

For the third time since May, Triumph has recalled its 2012 Speed Triple. The latest involves binding throttle cables due to the motorcycles being assembled without a throttle-cable guide.

Also included in this recall is the 2012 Daytona 675 sportbike. Triumph reports that the Speed Triple motorcycles affected were manufactured from June 2012 through November 2012; the Daytona 675s were manufactured from July 2012 through October 2012. All together, Triumph is recalling 652 of these motorcycles.

Triumph says without the guide, the cables may move freely and become trapped in the steering stop, impeding the steering operation and affecting the driver’s ability to control the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will install a throttle-cable guide free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Triumph has also recalled the Speed Triple due to transmission and neutral-light issues.

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
