- Recall initiated in the US
- Units manufactured since 2020 have been affected
- Bike equipped with a faulty rear brake
Triumph has initiated a recall for the Rocket 3 range sold in the US. Bikes manufactured since 2020 have been affected by a faulty rear brake setup and the British bikemaker has issued a recall to fix the same. The range includes the GT, R, and TFC variants.
More than 3,500 units, which means all the bikes produced since 2020, have been affected. The bikes are equipped with a 12.7mm rear brake master cylinder and it isn’t able to able to move the brake oil to the set distance. This has also led to air bubbles forming inside the cylinder, which could further increase pedal travel while braking.
To fix this, Triumph will install a new 14mm rear master cylinder, which should allow an adequate flow of oil. As of now, the recall has only been initiated in the US.
For reference, the Triumph Rocket 3 is powered by a 2,500cc, three-cylinder engine and it belts out 166bhp and 221Nm. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox. Triumph India offers four variants of the Rocket 3 in India – R, GT, GT Chrome Edition, and R Chrome Edition.
