Triumph Motorcycles is recalling certain 2020 Tiger 900, Rally, Rally Pro, GT, GT Low, and GT Pro motorcycles. However, some might consider this recall a bit of the “meh” variety. In the case of this recall, the problem resides with the reflector on the back of the bike.
The “reflex reflector” at the rear of the motorcycle may become loose or detach. Triumph says that detachment of the rear reflex reflector could reduce the visibility of the bike to drivers of other vehicles. Also, should the reflector become detached, the motorcycle no longer complies with FMVSS: 108 – Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.
Problems in the reflex reflector manufacturing process and tooling may result in the part having incorrectly dimensioned spigots. The spigots locate and fasten the reflex reflector to the motorcycle.
Triumph will contact owners of the affected models and instruct them to bring their motorcycles to a Triumph dealer. The dealer will then replace the rear reflector free of charge.
