The Can-Am Spyder RT has been subjected to another recall, proving that there seems to be no end in sight for the reverse trike’s multitude of issues. Not surprisingly, the latest recall is also fire hazard-related, similar to previous safety concerns that have plagued earlier versions of the model.

Almost 7,100 units of the Spyder RT are affected by the recall, all of which are units made from 2013. Even earlier models, those built from 2008 to 2012, are also being investigated for a similar problem, even though a recall to fix the same issue was already made back in 2012.

As if that’s not enough, the Can-Am DS 70 and DS 90, two ATVs designed for children, are reportedly capable of being faster than what Can-Am intended for these age-specific categories. That might not be too much of an issue for adults, but for young kids, it’s a pretty serious one. The specific details of the problem have yet to be divulged, but it appears that these vehicles are capable of exceeding speeds of 15 mph, which is the legal limit for the age categories that they’re homologated for.

Certain models of the DS 70 and DS 90 are also under threat of malfunctioning brakes, which would be a bigger headache for Can-Am in the event a young child gets hurt from this particular issue.

All in all, 2,385 units of the DS 70 and DS 90 have been tagged for recall with models ranging from as early as 2008 all the way to the current batch of 2015 models.
