US Closes Probe Into Can-Am Spyder 3-Wheeler Motorcycles After Manufacturer Agrees To recall

CanAmRTU.S. safety regulators have closed an investigation of fires in Can-Am Spyder three-wheeled motorcycles after the manufacturer agreed to a recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says.

Bombardier Recreational Products agreed to recall nearly 5,200 Spyder RT motorcycles from the 2013 model year. It also agreed to re-notify owners of motorcycles from 2008 through 2012 that were recalled in 2012 for problems that could cause fires.

Investigators found 103 complaints and two fires during the investigation of more than 52,000 motorcycles. The agency says Bombardier agreed to address rider burns, fuel boiling due to inadequate heat management and excessive fuel vapor emissions.

    Hope their CRJ’s(Canadian Regional Jets) they make are more fireproof. A recall at 35,000 feet ain’t real good!

    BRP is not the same company that makes the jets. Bombardier is who makes the jets.

    Spyders are made by Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP); which is a spin-off from Bombardier — thus not the same company. Completely separate.
