2013 Triumph Trophy SE Recalled for Centerstand Problem
Triumph is recalling 2013 Trophy SE models because of a risk of fracture in its center stand mount.
According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the left side center stand lug may fracture, reducing the amount of weight the stand can support. Triumph discovered the problem during a quality control audit. To remedy this issue, Triumph revised the main frame with a new, additional center stand bracket.
The recall affects 416 units of the Trophy SE in the U.S., within the VIN range 561284 to 590855. Non-SE Triumph Trophy models available in other markets are also affected by the recall.
Triumph dealers will install the new bracket on the recalled motorcycles. Newer models beyond the VIN range were produced with the additional center stand bracket already installed.
