NHTSA investigates two Can-Am Spyder fires


by Josée Paquet

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation into two Can-Am Spyder fires that occurred last month — one on July 20th and another on July 26th.

Similar incidents involving the fuel cap, vent hose and even a brake line have previously been reported, leading to recalls by BRP. According to the NHTSA, there is no connection with the recent fires, however.

A preliminary enquiry was initiated and targets the following models:
  • 2013 Spyder;
  • 2008-12 Spyder GS and RS;
  • 2008-14 Spyder RT;
  • 2010 Spyder RTS;
  • 2013 Spyder ST.
No one was injured in the two fires.
