All 2022 bikes are affected, with official notifications coming soon.
Triumph Motorcycles America announced a safety recall for all 2022 Speed Triple 1200 RR and Speed Triple 1200 RS motorcycles on March 31, 2022, due to the danger of a rear brake disc bolt releasing unexpectedly. If one of the rear brake disc nuts loosens, it may cause interference with other nearby components, preventing the wheel from moving freely as it should.
A total of 910 bikes are thought to be impacted, accounting for 100% of the population. Triumph discovered the problem to be “an improper thread shape in the rear axle [which] fails to activate the thread locking compound given by the mating bolt” after an inquiry. The following is a list of models, manufacture dates, and VINs that are affected:
- 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS bikes produced between February 3, 2021 and February 11, 2022, with VINS ranging from SMTP01ST6NTAF7370 to SMTP01ST3NTBA2698
- 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR bikes produced between September 2, 2021 and February 8, 2022, with VINS ranging from SMTP02ST1NTAW2194 to SMTP02ST4NTBA1372
According to Triumph, riders of affected 2022 Speed Triple RS or RR bikes may hear a strange noise coming from the rear of their motorcycle as a warning that this problem exists on their bikes. Authorized Triumph dealers will replace rear brake disc bolts on all affected bikes under this Triumph Motorcycles America safety recall.
Because the affected bikes would have been covered under the manufacturer’s existing limited warranty, Triumph did not file a reimbursement plan with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding owners who may have already have had this repair performed prior to the recall being issued. According to the OEM, it should have been covered under the existing warranty, and owners should not have had to pay out of pocket for any such repairs.
Triumph has not yet released a notification schedule for either dealers or owners of affected bikes, but it should be forthcoming in the near future. Triumph’s number for this recall is SRAN 596.
