ABS Issues Trigger Triumph Daytona 675 and Street Triple Recall

We kind of stopped counting the recalls due to ABS modulator problems, but here's another one, this time for Triumph machinery. Triumph has to bring back 1,887 of their 2012-2013 Street Triple, Street Triple R, Daytona 675 and Daytona 675 R, to have the ABS modulator replaced.

The affected Daytonas have been manufactured between September 2012 and June 2013, while the faulty Street Triples are made in July 2012.

The issue is the same we've been hearing about during the last weeks: the ABS modulator might fail and cease offering anti-lock protection for the braking system on the bikes. In certain conditions, hard braking could lead to wheels locking, and possibly skidding, increasing dramatically the chances of crashing.

Triumph says it's a manufacturer error for the ABS component and the modulator will be replaced free of charge, but has not announce a recall schedule yet. Customers can reach Triumph at 1-888-283-5288. the NHTSA campaign has number 13V319000.
