Triumph Motorcycles America is recalling 3,691 of the following motorcycles:

  • Model year 2018-2020 Street Triple RS, Tiger 1200 XCx & Tiger 1200 XCA,
  • Model year 2019-2020 Speed Triple S & Speed Triple RS,
  • Model year 2018-2019 Tiger 1200 XRT, Tiger 1200 XR, Tiger 1200 XRx & Tiger 1200 XRx LRH, and
  • Model year 2020 Tiger 1200 Alpine Edition & Tiger 1200 Desert Edition.

The front brake pads may corrode, potentially causing the friction material to detach from the backing plate.

If the brake pad friction material detaches from the backing plate, it may lengthen the distance needed to stop the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake pads free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact

Triumph customer service at (678) 854-2010. Triumph's number for this recall is SRAN 579.
