Details

Manufacturer: Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD

SUMMARY:
Triumph Motorcycles (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Speed Triple motorcycles manufactured June 2012 through January 2013. Due to the incorrect engagement of the neutral switch and gear selector drum, the neutral light may remain illuminated despite the motorcycle actually being in gear.


CONSEQUENCE:
The operator may think the motorcycle is in neutral while the motorcycle is in gear. This could lead to unintended movement of the motorcycle and a possible crash.

REMEDY:
Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will correct the engagement of the neutral switch and gear selector drum, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of May 2013. Owners may contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010 for more information.

NOTES:
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153)
