Triumph Motorcycles America, Ltd. has also recalled certain model year 2012-2013 Explorer and Explorer XC motorcycles. The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating data on the certification label is incorrect. The motorcycles fail to comply with the requirements of Part 567, “Certification.” The incorrect label could cause the operator to overload the motorcycle, which may result in handling issues and/or tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Triumph is notifying owners and will replace the labels with corrected GVWR data, free of charge. At press time, the manufacturer had not provided a notification schedule. Owners can contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010 for more information. Owners can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
