Talocan probably won't be closed anytime soon I'm guessing because as far as I know it's not that unreliable and it's the newer model. Also probably Phantasialand holds it in pretty high regard, it is one of the most iconic flatrides ever.
A lot of Top Spins are closing for basically cost saving reasons, some of them turn out a bit unreliable and as with most HUSS rides they devour electricity like I devour a buffet table so it's easy for a lot of parks to just say hell with this and replace it with like a superloop or something else cheap. For example my (2nd) home park Linnanmäki has a 1995 classic Top Spin and on any given day it might spend up to 1-3 hours non operational so if that's happening at more parks they probably see it easier to just get rid of it.
Off topic on the note of HUSS rides, they apparently sell the topple tower again.
