Safety equipment from Triumph Motorcycles America is now subject to a recall due to a manufacturing error.

The company is recalling certain accessory Adjustable Brake Levers, sold as part of an aftermarket lever replacement kit, part number A2021334. These brake levers are intended for installation on 2016 and 2017 Thruxton 1200, Steet Twin, Bonneville T120, and Bonneville T120 Black motorcycles. Under certain conditions, the brake levers may contact the handlebar before maximum braking force is applied.

Without the ability to apply maximum front braking, the distance needed to stop the motorcycle may be lengthened, increasing the risk of a crash.

About 120 brake levers are included in the recall.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected brake levers, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Triumph customer service at (678) 854-2010.
