Recall Issued for Triumph's T120 Bonnevilles

Certain Triumph owners who have gone the route of heated grips may face unwanted consequences according to the latest NHTSA recall.

An alert from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains Triumph Motorcycles America, LTD (Triumph) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T120 Black motorcycles, because they say, during use the heated hand grips may expand and cause the throttle to stick open.

As with most of the alerts, the end-result of this possible sticking increases the possibility of a crash.

The total number of motorcycles affected by this are 1,390.

To fix this possible issue, Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will install a spacer to prevent the throttle from sticking, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 20, 2017. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010. Triumph’s number for this recall is SB 546.
