If you own a 2019 Triumph Speed Triple RS, you should heed this latest recall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as the popular street bike is being recalled for its quickshifter assembly.
The issue stems from the Triumph Shift Assist (TSA) feature, the body of which may contact the gear change linkage clamp assembly, and interfere with gear changes, possibly resulting in a missed gear or false neutral.
If this condition occurs, it may lead to a loss of acceleration. A loss of acceleration without warning may lead to an increased risk of a crash. Hence, the recall.
In total, 466 units of the Triumph Speed Triple, all from the 2019 model year, are affected by this recall.
To remedy the issue, Triumph North America will notify affected owners, and Triumph dealers will replace the linkage clamp assembly, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in December 2019. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-888-284-6288. Triumph’s number for this recall is SRAN567.
As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
