Can-Am Spyder


The Can-Am Spyder is a three-wheeled motorcycle manufactured by the Canadian firm, Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP). The Spyder made its US debut in February of 2007 and has been a hot topic in the motorcycle riding world ever since. Representing a viable, sporty option for the aging motorcycle demographic the original standard-shift Can-Am Spyder was followed by the Spyder SE5, which features a semi-automatic transmission.

Can-Am Spyder
Can-Am surprised the press with a new 1330cc Inline Triple for its 2014 Spyder RT models.
The Can-Am Spyder isn’t a trike, in the traditional sense, as it sports two wheels in front and a single rear. Unlike some 2-1 three-wheelers, however, the Spyder does not lean. The Spyder’s mix-mash hybrid of motorcycle and ATV technology is perhaps most evident in the Can-Am Spyder chassis - dual A-arms complementing a single rear shock. The Can-Am Spyder frame is a Y-shaped cradle surrounding the Spyder’s 990cc V-Twin – the liquid-cooled engine built by Austria’s Rotax and a variation of the Twins powering Aprilia sportbikes. Features like stability and traction control, as well as power steering keep the Spyder manageable on the road.

Since the Spyder’s 2007 debut, the Roadster, as BRP likes to refer to it, has benefited from constant mainstream media coverage. Featured in music videos, television shows and films like G.I. Joe and Transformers II, the Can-Am Spyder continues to grow in popularity.
