Triumph is recalling 10,366 units of its 2006-2009 S Street Triple, Street Triple R, and Daytona 675 motorcycles for a faulty regulator/rectifier, which can overheat and prevent the motorcycle from charging properly, or at all. With the electrical system not charging the battery, the battery could fully discharge, and ultimately stall the motorcycle. As such, there is a risk of a crash and personal injury to the rider and/or passengers should the motorcycle stall because of the discharged battery.
Triumph will notify affected owners, and Triumph dealers will inspect and replace the regulator/rectifier free of charge. Triumph has not provided notification schedule at this time, but concerned Triumph owners may contact the Triumph customer service department at 1-678-854-2010. As always the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
