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 1-678-854-2010.
