In manual it says that lo batt indicates a low battery in one of the tyre sensors! That’s interesting! It seems that there is also an indication of which one it is. Could be that a new sensor will need to be fitted and programmed in.

Please don't be offended...what alarm are you getting? "Low Batt" on the dash refers to the Tire Pressure Sensors.
It is easy to misunderstand this message. Here is another posting on warnings and bad grounds:

Triumph would like you to buy replacement sensors but some owners have successfully opened the sealed units & replaced the batteries. It needs a bit of care & some skill with a soldering iron but apparently can be done. If you put "TPMS batteries" in the forum search facility you should find the info.

It is terribly simple to replace the batteries. I did it without soldering. Pay attention to the position of the battery (take a picture). Scrape off the lead, put in new battery, glue down the lead and reinstall.

I have written a manual on how to replace those batteries:
