The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) Office of Defects Investigation has opened a preliminary evaluation to gather additional informa- tion about reports of two fires involving three-wheeled motorcycles made by Bombardier Recreational Products, Inc. According to the agency, within the past two years, the company “has conducted three safety recalls to address defects that could result in a fire on the subject vehicles.”The two July 2014 fires, however, are apparently unrelated “to the issues covered by the previously released safety recalls.” The first fire involved “a MY 2011 Spyder RT used as a traffic enforcement vehicle by the Morgantown, WV police department”; the second involved “a MY 2013 Spyder RT SE5” and “occurred in the Mojave desert region of California.” NHTSA apparently became aware of this incident through a posting on the Spyderlovers.com Website.
