[] - Triumph Recalls 2023 Bonneville T120/T120 Black*

Click here for full story...

America’s market has a Triumph Bonneville T120 or two in need of a recall – and the affected machines are apparently suffering from a faulty rubber-based damper at the front brake caliper.

The recall went out on March 15th, with Triumph stating that the component to cause the ruckus could apparently be loose and “cause a distraction and reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of an injury.”

Only Triumph’s 2023 T120/T120 Blacks are affected, and a handful of them at that; we’re told the defective units represent*“about 1%* of the population” (via RideApart), with an estimated 988 models produced between May 24 of last year and January 30 and VINSs ranging from BD2179 to BK4496.*

“Initial warning signs of a loose front brake disc may include a pulsing sensation felt at the front brake lever. If the fixing points fracture, a loud bang may be heard… Triumph also notes that a detached brake disc would create significant metallic noise.”*

Naturally, Truimph will replace the rubber damper component for free, with requests affected models to be rolled in to the nearest authorized dealership. While there, Triumph will also replace the five brake disc bolts on the left-hand brake disc – all on the house and free of charge, of course.*

Not sure if your bike may be one of the models under recall?*
