As per the latest reports, Triumph has issued a recall which includes the Street and Bonneville motorcycles over a potential electrical problem. It’s being said that a total of 1,728 units are affected by this recall.
The recall notice has been submitted on 27 Feb 2019 and has been published in Canada. However, NHTSA is still taking its time to give an official confirmation in this regard. The recall affects 2016-17 models that include 2017 Street Cup, 2016 Street Twin, 2017 Street Scrambler, 2017 Bonneville T100, and 2016 Bonneville T120.
Triumph has found that in some of the aforementioned models, the clutch cable might come in contact with the wiring harness and could cause some damage. If that happens, then there is a probability that it would lead to the wear of the wiring and may cause a power failure. This means that electrical components like headlights, turn signals, etc. might misbehave or turn completely dead and even the engine might turn off.
Triumph will contact the owners of the affected models and notify them about the problem which will be rectified by replacing the headstock tidy without any charge.
As of now, this recall is limited to the States. We hope we don’t get to see it here in the Middle East.
