Triumph recalls Tiger 800 for engine management system re-boot


Triumph Motorcycles America is recalling certain 2011 and 2012 model year Tiger 800s and 800 XCs due to a problem with the engine management software. The potential number of vehicles affected is 1,485.

Bikes affected were manufactured from September 2010 through June 2011. The issue could cause lower RPMs and engine stall when decelerating, possibly leading to a crash.

Dealers are required service the vehicles free of charge by downloading new engine management software into the motorcycle’s ECU.
