Triumph Recalls Rocket III Touring Motorcycles for Label Misstatements

Triumph has issued a recall of certain 2008 Rocket III Touring motorcycles.

These motorcycles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars," and Part 567, "Certification." The certification label, located on the left front frame tube, includes incorrect information regarding tire sizes and pressures, as well as an incorrect Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). An owner may under-inflate the front tire if using the incorrect information. Under-inflation may cause a tire to slip or come off the rim causing a loss of control which could result in a crash.

356 units are affected.

Not a good thing when they have to recall,surely they should do more tests before releasing it in first place
