May 8, 2015

Triumph is recalling about 570 motorcycles that may have been built with an improperly manufactured part.

The affected model year 2014-2015 Daytona 675 R and Speed Triple R motorcycles may have been built with an improperly manufactured rear shock absorber.

The nut on the damper rod for these shock absorbers may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock. If the piston rod nut loosens, shock absorber performance would be affected, possibly causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

Triumph will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will replace the rear shock absorber, free of charge.

For more information, owners may contact Triumph customer service at (678) 854-2010.
