Triumph had issued a recall for 1242 units of the Street Triple RS in the US a few weeks back and now, the company has announced a recall in India as well. As many as 100 units of the naked middleweight motorcycle have been recalled due to a possible malfunctioning of the left switchgear that can result in poor operation of the headlamps and the indicators.

The above problem is likely to happen when water gets into the switchgear. The British automaker has specified that it will start contacting the customers of the affected motorcycles through their respective dealerships and the faulty part will be replaced free of cost. The National Highway Traffic Security Administration of USA released a document a few days back that the left switchgear could not have been sealed as tightly as it should have been. Hence water could seep into the components and could result in a short circuit as well.

Of the three variants, Triumph had recalled the R and the RS variants in America. However, in India, the company sells the S and the RS and it is only the RS variant that has been recalled. The Street Triple RS comes powered by a 765cc, in-line 3-cylinder motor that produces 121 HP and 77 Nm of torque. The engine comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox with quick-shifter.
