Triumph Motorcycle Recall

Triumph Motorcycles America has recalled 2800 of its Tiger Explorer adventure bikes and Trophy SE sport tourers due to electronic issues that can possibly stall the motorcycles.

Triumph says the ECU’s detection threshold is set too tightly and lacked proper signal filtering, causing it to prematurely detect a deviation in the throttle butterfly position. The ECU would then activate the ride-by-wire system’s safety shutdown, closing the throttle butterfly valve and cutting the fuel and ignition, Triumph says. If this occurs, engine can stall, increasing the risk of the crash.

Triumph says the following motorcycles may be affected in the recall:2012-2014 Tiger Explorer ABS A1, 2013-2014 Tiger Explorer Spoke ABS XC A1, and Trophy SE A1 motorcycles manufactured Nov. 17, 2011, through Dec. 16, 2013.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will update and install new ECU hardware and software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early February 2014.

Owners may contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010.
