Motorcycles Recalled Over Possible Loss of Steering Control

Triumph has recently reported that multiple vehicles are being recalled over a problem that could cause the rider to lose control over the steering of the bike.

According to an official release published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2012 Daytona 675 and 2012 Street Triple motorcycles are being recalled after the company learned that the affected vehicles were not equipped with a guide that would keep the throttle cables from becoming trapped in the steering stop.

If there is not a guide to keep the cables contained, the rider could lose control over the vehicle’s steering operation, increasing the risk of a possible accident.

The federal agency has stated that all affected vehicles are going to have recommended and necessary guides installed for free at authorized dealers. Owners of affected vehicles should have this issue promptly resolved before accidents occur. If you were affected, the company will be notifying you soon.

As an attorney, I encourage to have your vehicle promptly repaired. California riders familiarized with issues associated with recalled vehicles know the headache that an unrepaired problem can cause. Act promptly.
