2017 Can-Am Spyder RT Recall Due to Headlight Problem

2017 Can-Am Spyder RT Recall

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP), parent company of Can-Am, is recalling certain 2017 Can Am Spyder RT three-wheel motorcycles because of a manufacturing error within the headlight assembly.

BRP says the headlight may be misaligned to shine too high when on the low beam setting. This may cause on-coming traffic to be blinded by the headlights and increase risk of a crash. Approximately 94 units are affected by the recall.
