Triumph Recalls 2012-2013 Trophy (SE) Motorcycles
Triumph Motorcycles Ltd. has recalled 513 of its 2012-2013 Trophy and Trophy SE sport touring motorcycles due to possible fuel leaks.
Triumph says the effected Trophy (SE) models, which were manufactured from September 2012 through March 2013, may leak fuel from its fuel tank.
Triumph says the two layers used in the construction of the fuel tank may have failed to adhere, which may result in a fuel leak.
If the fuel tank leaks, the unexpected fuel loss may lead to an engine stall while riding, increasing the risk of a crash. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may also result in a fire, Triumph says.
Triumph says it will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall is expected to begin during June 2013. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-888-283-5288.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
