Summary:
Triumph Motorcycles (Triumph) is recalling certain model year 2013 Trophy motorcycles manufactured from September 5, 2012, through November 29, 2012.

Consequence:
Owners relying on the information contained in the label may install incorrect replacement tires, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Remedy:
None of the affected motorcycles have been sold to consumers and they will be repaired prior to sale. Therefore, an owner notification letter will not be issued for this campaign. Owners may contact Triumph at 1-678-854-2010 for more information.
