Triumph India has issued a recall for its Bonneville, Street Twin and Street Scrambler range over a potential wiring harness failure. This recall follows the one in the USA where over 12,000 Triumph bikes have been affected. The bikes recalled in the US include Bonneville T100, T100 Black (2017-2019), Bonneville T120, T120 Black (2016-2019), Street Twin, Street Twin A2 (2016-2018), Street Scrambler (2017-2018) and Street Cup. Of these, the Street Cup and Street Twin A2 are not sold in India.
The issue pertains to the wiring harness in the headstock. According to Triumph, the clutch cable rubbing against the wiring harness leads to the wires getting damaged. This can cause electrical systems like the headlamp, turn indicator and in some case ignition system like the engine kill switch to malfunction. As a result of this, you cannot switch off the bike.

Triumph India has asked owners of any of the above-mentioned bikes to contact their dealerships and get the affected wiring harness replaced free of cost. Here is a statement from the company, "Triumph has launched a safety recall concerning the Headstock Tidy on certain Street Scrambler, Street Twin, Bonneville T100 and Bonneville T120 to remedy an indicator and main beam malfunction as well as a possible loss of engine power caused by the clutch cable contacting the main harness, causing damage to the wiring within the main harness. This global recall has affected around 1,000 motorcycles in India. Any concerned customers are asked in the first instance to contact their local Triumph Dealer as soon as possible, who will be able to carry out all necessary work as required at no cost to the owner."
