About 100 units of the Triumph Street Triple RS are recalled in India due to suspected switchgear issue
Triumph Motorcycles has stated that it is announcing a recall for Street Triple RS in the domestic market due to a potential switchgear issue. As much as 100 units are suspected to be affected and the British premium brand’s authorised dealerships across the country will contact the owners to mend the problem.
The company says necessary action will be taken which could include replacing the faulty components or just making repair of the existing unit, but no technical details have been revealed by them on how they handle things.
The left hand switch cube with an indicator and main beam can cause electrical problems resulting in malfunction of turn indicators, horn or the headlamp. Triumph identified that improper sealing of the case could lead to water in wet weather conditions or during washing can enter the assembly and cause the above issues.
Triumph launched the latest Street Triple range in S and RS variants last year. The RS version is the range-topper with packed features and it was introduced at a price of Rs. 10.55 lakh. The recall does not cover the S variant as no such issues were encountered by Triumph.
The middleweight naked motorcycle has been lauded since it entered the market and is powered by a 765 cc three-cylinder inline engine that is good enough to develop a maximum power output of 121 bhp at 11,700 rpm and 77 Nm of peak torque delivered at 10,800 rpm. The Street Triple RS also offers five riding modes and the braking power is taken care of by Brembo M50 unit.
The performance motorcycle is shod on Pirelli Supercorsa tyres and comes fitted with twin 310 mm disc brakes up front along with a 220 mm disc brake at rear. The suspension duties are performed by Showa 41 mm upside down forks up front and Ohlins fully adjustable monoshock at the rear.
