THE RECALL: Triumph Motorcycles America, Ltd. (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Daytona 675 R and Speed Triple R motorcycles manufactured from January 1, 2014 to April 1, 2015.

The nut on the damper rod for these shock absorbers may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock.
