WASHINGTON, D.C. - Triumph is recalling certain 2012 Speed Triple and Daytona 675 models because they may have been assembled without a guide for the throttle cables.

Without the guide, the cables may move freely and become trapped in the steering stop, impeding the steering operation and affecting the rider’s ability to control the motorcycle.

The recall (No. 13V215000) potentially affects 652 units.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will install a throttle cable guide, free of charge.

Triumph has not yet provided NHTSA with a notification schedule. Owners may contact Triumph at 678-854-2010 for more information.

This is Triumph’s fifth recall in the past five weeks. The company also has recalled 2012 and 2013 Speed Triple ABS models that could pop out of gear; Speed Triple models that could display a false neutral; Tiger Explorer models with an incorrect payload label; and several models with faulty turn signal stems.
