Triumph India to recall 34 Daytona Rs under Ohlins' suspension issue

12 May 2015 / 1

Triumph India has confirmed that it has the VIN numbers for 34 Daytona R motorcycles that were sold in India with defective suspension units. The issue arises from the suspension maker Ohlins, one of the most reputed in its field in the world. The Triumph Daytona R and the Street Triple R (not sold in India) wear one of the affected suspension units.

Ohlins Racing AB discovered that certain shock absorbers it made (rear units) had an assembly defect. The Ohlins website suggests that you can check if your part number (two alphabets and three numbers, like YA 340) and batch/serial number (six digits, like 136776) are listed as faulty at We understand the flaw is related to a piston nut that could come loose and the shock absorber could disassemble leading to a crash.

Triumph India has started contacting its customers since yesterday afternoon, advising, as per the recall in the US and elsewhere, to stop riding the motorcycle until the suspension unit has been examined and fixed if required.
The Triumphs are not the only motorcycles affected by this recall globally. Also affected is the Yamaha YZF-R1M – this is on sale in India but no motorcycles have been delivered as far as far we know. Similarly, the CBR1000RR-S or the special HRC edition of the Fireblade – also not on sale – is also affected by the recall.
