- Recall due to potential malfunctioning of the left switchgear
- Around 100 units of Street Triple RS affected
- Triumph launched Street Triple RS at Rs 10.55 lakh in October 2017
British premium motorcycle manufacturer Triumph has issued a recall for Street Triple RS in India. The safety recall has been initiated over potential malfunctioning of the left switchgear. Nearly 100 Street Triple RS units sold in India are affected by the recall and Triumph motorcycles dealerships will contact the owners to take 'necessary action.'
The left switch cube on certain Street Triple RS that houses controls for indicators and the main beam may malfunction if water enters the internals due to rain while washing or by another means. The sealing of certain switchgear is not done properly during manufacture and it may cause water to seep in. The water entered may cause the horn, turn indicators, and even the headlight to stop working. The situation may be hazardous especially during rides in the night.
The time to fix the issue will be less than an hour and Triumph aims to complete the full recall before the start of the monsoon, reports Autocar.
