2016-2020 Triumph Thruxton Recall: Side Stand Issues

Triumph Motorcycles America has recalled 3,244 of its 2016-2018 Thruxton, 2016-2019 Thruxton R, and 2020 Thruxton TFC motorcycles due to side-stand issues.

Triumph says the side stand spring may fracture, which can cause the switch to activate and shut off the engine. This malfunction can increase the risk of a crash.
