SUMMARY:Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Triumph Street Triple R motorcycles manufactured July 1, 2012, to October 1, 2013, and equipped with ABS.

CONSEQUENCE:If the bolts loosen, steering movement could be restricted, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will replace the four bolts with new bolts containing threadlock, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
