Triumph Models Recalled Over Brake Detaching Issue

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has issued a recall for 928 motorcycles over an issue with the front brakes.

The affected vehicles may have experience the front brake pad detaching from the back plate, “resulting in reduced braking performance”, says the official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

“Reduced brake performance may result in a dangerous fall or collision, causing serious injury or death to the rider or other road users,” the notice says.

The affected bikes are:

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle and scooter recalls as a service to all riders.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.

Voting Is Now Open for the 2020 Triumph Bonneville Build-Off

Triumph is holding a Bonneville Build off on it’s UK website. You can vote for the best build from a list of nine of the finalists that have been selected so far.

Dealers across the UK are participating in the build-off and there are some truly unique builds here. The participants had to abide by one basic rule. They had to be a 900cc or 1200cc Bonneville. Otherwise, the builders were encouraged to get creative, and it appears that some of them certainly did.

There are very clearly some different design philosophies and techniques at work. Some sought to craft the Bonneville into a sportbike, while others took the model a completely different route and went after a WWII military bike look. There’s also just about everything in between from cafe racers to scramblers.

To learn more about each of the nine builds that you can vote for, check out the list of options at Triumph’s event webpage. From there, you can read more about each build and then vote for your personal favorite. You will have to give up your email to vote, but that’s not too bad of a trade.

Loose Reflector Forces Triumph Tiger Recall

In what may seem a trivial issue of compliance, the reflector on the 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 could come loose and fall off.

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has issued the recall notice through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

It affects 74 current Tiger 900 models sold from 2 March to 21 August 2020.

The official notice says: “If the reflector is missing, affected motorcycles may be less visible to drivers of other vehicles, which could increase the risk of a crash, resulting in injury or death of the rider.”

Owners may also cop a fine or vehicle defect notice for an illegal motorcycle. Across Australia, these fines are less than $100.

All owners should contact Australian Triumph dealers to make an appointment to have the rear reflex reflector replaced free of charge.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle and scooter recalls as a service to all riders.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.

Triumph Trident makes a comeback

Triumph Motorcycles will return the 1990s Trident name to their fleet in the second quarter of 2021.

The company has revealed their midsized three-cylinder Trident design prototype at the London Design Museum.

In a press release, Triumph says the British-designed bike will have “torque-rich performance”, “class-leading technology” and “agile and confidence inspiring handling”.

So it sounds like it could be based on the drivetrain and tech of their Street Triple RS ($A$17,650).

However, instead of a 765cc engine, it might be a little smaller as they refer to it as a “new entry point into Triumph’s award winning Triple roadster line-up will be competitively priced to deliver great value for a new generation of riders”.

So maybe it is more like the learner-approved 660cc Street Triple ($A12,850) than the original 900cc Trident.

The Trident design prototype is the result of a four-year development programme at their Hinckley design facility with input from Milanese automotive designer Rodolfo Frascoli.

Rodolfo has also designed the Moto Guzzi Griso, Breva, Norge and Stelvio, Granturismo Vespa, Gilera Nexus, Ice and Dna, Triumph Speed Triple and Tiger 1050, Moto Morini Corsaro, Granpasso, Scrambler, Suzuki Katana, Triumph Tramontana, VR46 Mya and many more.

Here is part of the official Triumph press release

The Trident design prototype – the birth of a new icon:
The Trident design motorcycle integrates the original design development model with prototype components – built to showcase the style and attitude of the landmark new motorcycle to come.

Introducing an all new contemporary take on Triumph style & attitude, the Trident design presents a pure, minimalistic form, with clean lines and uncluttered features that incorporates Triumph’s design DNA, with signature tank knee indents and key cues from our iconic Speed Triple’s muscular poise. Central to the overall form and brief, the Trident is built around a compact powerful Triumph triple engine, designed to bring all the advantages of a triple to the category for the first time, with the perfect balance of low down torque and top end power.

With a distinctive and confident stance & poise, the Trident will deliver rider ergonomics crafted to bring all of Triumph’s handling expertise, for the perfect balance of an engaged agile and dynamic ride, with an all-new chassis, married to great rider accessibility, comfort and confidence inspiring feel, including a natural upright riding position.

The design prototype also highlights another key aim with the integration of modern digital technology into the design that brings the features which riders in this world value and desire, in an elegant and easy to use way.

Steve Sargent. Triumph Chief Product Officer
”The Trident design prototype marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Triumph, where the brief was all about fun, from the look to the ride. With its pure minimalist form, clean lines, Triumph design DNA and more than a hint of our Speed Triple’s muscular poise, this gives the first exciting glimpse at the full Trident story to come. Ultimately our aim was to bring a new take on character and style, alongside the accessible easy handling and quality Triumph is known for – at a price that’s really competitive”.

Triumph Recalls Street Models Over Wiring Issue

Triumph has issued a global recall over wiring issues for its 900cc Street Twin and Street Scrambler models.

The issue revolves around the movement of the handlebars which inputs could damage the wiring harness over time due to a misrouted harness.

The wiring harness may make contact with the lower lug on the main frame headstock.

Constant steering inputs may cause the harness to rub the lug, resulting in wear and potential damage to the wiring over time. The engine may end up stalling unexpectedly.

The official Australian Competition and Consumer Commission notice has not yet been released but Triumph Australia has attempted to get in touch with owners to alert them to the issue.

Since some owners may have sold their bikes privately, we have published this recall notice to advise those new owners.

The issues affects 2019 and 2020 Street Twin and Scrambler models.

Owners are asked to book non their bike wth a Triumph dealer to have a VIN plate protector installed that will reroute the harness.

They will also inspect the harness and replace it if necessary, free of charge.

The “Bonneville” range has been the subject of several embarrassing recalls since they were introduced in 2016:

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.

Triumph launch Trekker GT e-bike

Triumph started in 1889 as a bicycle company and now they are returning to bicycles with an e-bike called the Trekker GT.

They are not the only motorcycle manufacturer looking to ebikes as a supplement to their motorcycle business.

Ducati and even Harley-Davidson are getting into the ebikes trend.

It all comes as some riders are calling for ebikes to be registered before they dominate bike lanes, chew up available parking space and lawless riders give all motorcycle and scooter riders a bad name.

The move to add ebikes also comes as Triumph Motorcycle recently announced it would slash 400 jobs globally, blaming the pandemic for falling sales.

Triumph also made bicycles in the 1970s, but this is a modern pedal-assisted electric model with some hi-tech features such as digital instruments.

Triumph Trekker GT ebikeTrekker GT weighs just 2.88kg and is powered by a 250w 60Nm Shimano Steps E6100 motor and Shimano E8035 504Wh battery, all neatly hidden in the front stem of the frame.Triumph Trekker GT ebike

It was designed in-house and will be available in Europe with other markets to follow.

There is no word yet on price.

Triumph screens 007 Scrambler edition

Triumph has announced a new Scrambler 1200 007 Edition to cash in on its star billing in the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die, to hit the screens in November.

The British company would have a paid a tidy sum for their first 007 film product placement which included the Scrambler 1200 and Tiger 900.

Tiger 900Tiger 900

But the limelight has been dimmed a little. They claim they are the only motorcycle in the partnership, but there is also a Ducati Scrambler in the trailer.

And the film was to have been screened in April before this limited edition model was released.

However, the film’s release has been pushed back to November because of the pandemic.

007 editionTriumph Scrambler 1200 Bond 007 limited edition

The Bond 007 edition Scrambler 1200 is limited to 200 units and costs a whopping $A27,100.

That compares with the road-based XC at $20,300 (plus on-road costs) and the off-road-oriented XE at $21,700.

Each Bond Edition motorcycle has a unique billet riser clamp with laser-etched individual edition numbering and comes with a special Bond Handover Pack that includes a numbered certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor.

Of course, there is 007 branding, a special 007 “shutter” startup screen message, black anodized mudguards, grab rail, sump guard, and infills, black powder-coated swingarm and sprocket cover, an Arrow muffler with carbon fiber tips, a stainless steel headlight grilled, and black rear wheel adjusters.   

There are no performance updates, except the muffler.

The engine is the same 1200cc parallel-twin with 66.2kW of power and 110Nm of torque.

Product placement

Bond film No Time to DieFilming No Time to Die

The price for product placement in a movie can be up to about $A500,000, but for a Bond film it can be a whole lot more.

In fact, Heineken is believed to have paid $A65 Million to get Bond character Daniel Craig to sip their beer instead of a martini in the 2015 film, Spectre.

So we have no idea how much Triumph has paid to have the modified Scrambler 1200 and Tiger 900 included.

So why is a baddy riding an 803cc Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled in the main chase scene?

Bond film espionage?

Has Ducati snuck in some free screen time in an apt case of Bond film espionage or did they pay, too?

Or is this a deliberate effort by Triumph to make their scrambler competitor look bad by being associated with buddies while their Scrambler is associated with the hero?

Bond movies are usually associated with exotic cars, but motorcycles have also featured over the years.

Most have been BMW vehicles, although there was a run of Ford-owned cars for a while, including Aston Martin.

Bond rode a three-wheeled Honda US90 in 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever, a Cagiva W16 in 1995’s Goldeneye and a BMW R 1200 C cruiser in the Vietnam chase scene in the ’97 Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies.

There was also a Honda Montesa Cota 4RT in the 2008 Quantum of Solace and Aussie stunt rider Robbie Maddison road a Honda CRF2050R across Istanbul rooftops in 2012’s Skyfall.

Meanwhile, BMW has dominated the Mission Impossible and Jason Bourne movie franchises and Ducati has not been shy about product placement with the Venom and CHiPs movies.

Of course, Triumph has probably the most memorable motorcycle scene from any movie.

Their TR6 was used as a Nazi BMW in the chase scene in 1963 film, The Great Escape.

Triumph and Bajaj to build small bikes

Triumph Motorcycles has finally signed a deal with Bajaj Auto India to build small-capacity bikes in India after more than five years of negotiation.

The British manufacturer announced the deal in 2017 but has only now formally commenced their “exciting, long term, non-equity partnership” in Pune, India.

Triumph joins other motorcycle manufacturers as diverse as BMW and Harley-Davidson to make bikes in India for the world.

There is no word yet on when these small-capacity bikes from 200-750cc will come to Australia.

Bajaj Auto Dominar 400Bajaj Auto Dominar 400

We don’t believe it would dent the perceived value of the brand since they have been making most of their bikes in neighbouring Thailand for several years now.

In fact, it should help keep a lid on prices and give Triumph more much-needed learner-approved motorcycles. Currently their only LAMS bike is the Street Triple S 660.

Official statementTriumph Bonneville 900 Street Scrambler

Here is the official statement form the two companies on the launch of the deal:

This is a unique moment, where two world-class companies that are passionate, as well as product focused, are coming together to build a brand new range of mid-capacity motorcycles.

The partnership will see the two companies with their respective strengths in large and small capacity motorcycles collaborate to design, engineer, and manufacture a range of mid-capacity motorcycles.

The iconic Triumph brand will seek to further expand its global reach, with the partnership offering a new mid-sized sector opportunity and, importantly, a new entry point to several high-volume emerging markets, including India and other Asian markets.

The strategic partnership will benefit both parties with Bajaj becoming one of Triumph’s key distribution partners in crucial new markets for the Triumph brand around the globe.  Going forward Bajaj will take over Triumph’s Indian distribution activities, at a date yet to be confirmed, leveraging the great expertise that Bajaj has in this region. In their other key overseas markets, where Triumph is not currently present, Bajaj will represent Triumph and offer the new mid capacity bikes as part of the full Triumph line-up.  In all other markets where Triumph is present today, the motorcycles developed together from this partnership will join the current Triumph product portfolio and be distributed by the Triumph led dealer network worldwide. This will truly unlock the potential on a global scale.

The Triumph-Bajaj collaboration will combine strengths in design, technology, cost-competitive manufacturing and an intimate knowledge of key target markets to deliver a range of winning products and business success.

The partnership will build new engine and vehicle platform in the mid-capacity range (200- 750cc) and offer multiple options to address different segments in this class. The proposition will be aspirational and affordable with a targeted pricing starting under INR 2 lacs (about $A4100) in India. This will create a new entry point to the Triumph range around the world, and ensure Triumph can compete in important large segments of the global motorcycle market, and attract new customers to the brand.

Triumph Motorcycles CEO, Nick Bloor, said: “This is an important partnership for Triumph and I am delighted that it has now formally commenced.  As well as taking our brand into crucial new territories, the products that will come out of the partnership will also help attract a younger, but still discerning, customer audience and is another step in our ambitions to expand globally, particularly in the fast-growing markets of South East Asia, but also driving growth in more mature territories like Europe.”

Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto India, said: “The Triumph brand is an iconic one the world over. So, we are confident that there will be a huge appetite in India and other emerging markets for these new products. We look forward to working alongside such a famous motorcycle company and to leveraging each other’s strengths and expertise to make the relationship a success for everyone.”
