Why Is Triumph Recalling Tiger Sport 660 And Trident 660 Models?

On February 14 2024, Triumph Motorcycle America issued a safety recall for its - Trident 660s and Tiger Sport 660s models. 

As per the NHTSA's Safety Recall Report, China claimed the first service warranty back in mid-July. Then, two more claims from China came by late August month. This situation led Triumph Motorcycles to start an investigation to find the cause of these continual claims. 

When the quality department submitted its findings on February 24, 2024, Triumph realised that detaching front fork caps was the cause of this issue. Also, it involves the replacement of the MAP hose, which can create issues with the MAP sensor. 

Triumph adds to the report that bikes produced before May 2022 were affected by the recall due to a machining error, which has since been corrected.

Triumph Bikes Affected After the Recall

Around 107 bikes sold in the US are believed to be facing issues due to improperly machined front fork caps. The table given below provides the production date for the models recalled by Triumph Motorcycle America. 


Model Name Production Date
Triumph Trident 660May 18, 2022 to April 28, 2022
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 May 5, 2022 to May 24, 2022

The fork caps inserted during the production could have their threads torn away, thereby detaching from the fork tube. Both models have incorrectly machined threads on fork caps, causing detachment. This results in poor performance, causing high risk in controlling vehicles and preventing potential crashes. 

Now, let's quickly go through the features, engine, and its ability to provide various ride experiences.
