The motorcycle is said to have issues with its switchgear.
Triumph India has issued a safety recall of approximately 100 units of the Street Triple RS. The British company, through its 16 dealers across India, will contact the owners of affected bikes to take necessary action.
Reason behind the recall is a potential malfunctioning of the left switchgear, which is speculated to be not sealed properly. This can result in malfunctioning of electronics due to water seepage. It is not yet known what part(s) of the Street Triple RS will be fixed or replaced during this procedure.
Very recently, 1242 units of the Street Triple RS were also recalled in the USA due to the very same reason. The lower-spec Street Triple S has not been affected by this issue.
Priced at ₹11.13 lakh (ex-showroom), the Street Triple RS is powered by a 765cc, 3-cylinder engine that produces 121bhp of power and 77Nm of torque. Equipment wise, the RS sports slip-assisted clutch with quick shifts, 5-inch colour TFT screen with custom layouts, five riding modes, Ohlins rear monoshock, Brembo M50 front calipers, etc.
Rivals of the Triumph Street triple RS in India include the Kawasaki Z900 and Ducati Monster 821.
