Triumph Trident 660 recalled. Here's why
Triumph Trident 660, the most accessible motorcycle in the iconic UK-based motorcycle maker's lineup has been part of a recall lately. And if you are one of the owners of this machine then you might want to contact your nearest Triumph dealer because of a certain side-stand issue that pertains in units manufactured between February 07, 2021 and May 15, 2021.
As per a recall document issued by the USA’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the side-stand for the Triumph Trident has been manufactured with the use of an incorrect specification of raw material. This in turn could result in bending of the unit with time and could cause the motorcycle to bend more and fall over.
The faulty part has been supplied by Fujin Corporation Pvt Ltd based in Faridabad, Haryana. While the recall document only pertains to 314 units in the US alone, units retailed in India are also affected by the latest recall.
