Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall for the Triumph Daytona 675, model year 2006-2009 as well as for the Triumph Street Triple and Street Triple R, model year 2006-2009. The recall may potentially affect up to 10,366 units.

According to the NHTSA, the “regulator/rectifier can overheat and prevent the motorcycle from charging. Once the battery is fully discharged, the motorcycle may stall.” The risk of a crash and injury increases if the motorcycle stalls unexpectedly.

Triumph will notify owners and dealers will replace the regulator/rectifier free of charge. Owners of the affected models can contact the Triumph service department directly at 1-678-854-2010. Owners can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to for more information. The NHTSA’s campaign ID number for this recall notice is 12V445000.
