Triumph recalls Trophy to replace fuel tank

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Triumph is recalling certain 2012 and 2013 Trophy and Trophy SE models because the two layers used in the construction of the fuel tank may have failed to adhere, which may result in a fuel leak.

If the fuel tank leaks, the unexpected fuel loss may lead to an engine stall while the motorcycle is in operation. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may also result in a fire.

The recall (No. 13V223000) potentially affects 513 units.

Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall is expected to begin this month. 

This is Triumph’s sixth recall in the past six weeks. The company also has recalled 2012 Speed Triple and Daytona 675 models because of a missing throttle cable guide; 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.
