According to the recall document issued by USA’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the side-stand which has been fitted to the Trident model is constructed from raw material of incorrect specification which could cause the side-stand to bend and/or break with time and use. This could lead to the bike to lean further over its balancing angle that could lead the bike to tip-over and receive damage.

In the recall document, the supplier of the faulty side-stand has been named – Fujin Corporation Pvt Ltd – which is based out of Faridabad, Haryana. The document further states that, in the USA, there are 314 potential Trident models which could be fitted with the faulty side-stand.

The service centre will swap to the correct specification side-stand free-of-cost to their customers.
