Highlights

  • Limited number of Bonneville bikes affected
  • Affected bikes have been identified
  • Triumph is reaching out to owners of these bikes

Triumph Motorcycles is recalling a limited number of bikes in the Bonneville range for what the company calls "preventive part replacement". Triumph dealers and authorised service centres are reaching out to customers and replacing the faulty part which could potentially malfunction, CarandBike.com has learnt. The replacement will be carried out free of charge, and only certain motorcycles are affected which have been identified. Triumph dealers are advising customers not to ride the bikes in question till the part is replaced.

The problem is with bikes in certain chassis number series, in the fuel pump sub-harness. Triumph is in the process of replacing the faulty part pre-emptively. In an email to owners of the affected bikes, Triumph says this is part of "a global exercise by the company to ensure stringent quality standards and customer safety."

So if you're an owner, regardless of whether you are facing any problems with your bike, it may be a good idea to get in touch with your Triumph dealership if your bike is included in the list of affected bikes.

Triumph launched the updated Bonneville series last year in India, with the entry-level Street Twin, followed by the Bonneville T120, Thruxton R and the Bonneville T100. The Bonneville series constitutes the biggest sales volume for all Triumph bikes sold in the country. Triumph India sold just over 1,000 bikes between April 2016 and February 2017, and the modern classics from the Bonneville range made up a third of these numbers.
