Triumph is recalling 2016-2018 Thruxton and Thruxton R motorcycles due to problems with its engine, engine cooling and electrical systems – which could potentially affect 2,824 Thruxton and Thruxton R’s in the USA.

Basically, the engine may unintentionally stall if the throttle is open or closed quickly, while the clutch lever is pulled in – and we all know that a stalled engine is never a good thing.


Of course, Triumph is happy to remedy the problem for affected motorcycles, free of charge. Triumph will notify owners, and dealers will update the engine management software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 9, 2018.

If you reckon your bike is affected, owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-678-854-2010. Triumph’s number for this recall is 33. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
