2013 Triumph Trophy SE Recalled in Canada for Potential Fuel Leak
Transport Canada has announced a recall for the 2013 Triumph Trophy SE because of a potential fuel leak. As yet, no recall has been announced for the U.S., but we expect one to be announced shortly by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to Transport Canada, the fuel tanks on certain Trophy models may have been manufactured incorrectly and may leak fuel. This presents a fire risk, should leaking fuel come in contact with an ignition source.
Triumph dealers will inspect affected units and replace the fuel tank. The Transport Canada recall affects 74 units. We will provide an update if/when a recall is announced for the U.S. market.
This is the second recall for the Triumph Trophy. Last December, the Trophy was recalled because the tire label had incorrect information on it. Needless to say, the fuel tank recall is a much more serious issue.
