Triumph Motorcycles of America has issued a recall for 1,241 units of Rocket 3 motorcycles in USA. The models included in the recall are the 2020-21 models of the Rocket 3 R, Rocket 3 GT and the Rocket 3 TFC. According to the recall report filed with National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one per cent of the total bikes recalled may have air in the braking system. The affected units were manufactured between October 2019 and August 2020. The process of filling up the braking fluid in the rear brake system may have been faulty which in turn could have led to air being present in the ABS system.

This may lead to braking deterioration over a period of time, longer travel for the rear brake lever, reduced braking efficiency and increased potential of crashes due to longer braking distances. The company will begin the recall process on December 16, 2020 and will bleed the rear brakes and refill it again properly in cases of affected motorcycles. The rectification will be done free of cost for owners of affected motorcycles.
