The Can-AM SPYDER roadster combines the open-air benefits of a motorcycle with many of the convenience features of a traditional roadster to define a new paradigm for an on-road power sport vehicle. The unique Y-architecture with three wheels (two in the front, one in the rear) provides stability at rest and in motion, balancing performance needs with safety concerns. The Vehicle Stability System, which includes ABS, traction control and stability control, comes as standard on each vehicle. This makes the SPYDER roadster user-friendly and the road accessible to many people who want to enjoy the open-air experience.
Spyder is built around a Surrounding Spar Technology (SST™) frame, featuring a minimalist steel center beam, surrounding the engine. It minimizes weld points for greater structural integrity. This light and slim frame provides a low center of gravity to enhance stability and handling.
Fluid motion stems from the smooth 5-speed gearbox created specifically for the Spyder. It features a true mechanical reverse. An optional thumb-shift sequential electronic transmission offers even greater ease of use. The final beltdrive provides ultra-smooth gearing and easy maintenance.
Providing life under the hood is a Rotax® 990cc, V-twin liquid cooled engine. It delivers a strong push and responsive acceleration throughout the power band. Advanced features include double overhead cams and a state-of-the-art electronic fuel management system.
Spyder senses its surroundings utilizing multiple on-board Electronic Control Units (ECUs). These sophisticated systems monitor a broad range of functions, from wheel slippage to digitally encoded security information.
