Performance and Handling:
Power and performance
With 998cc, the powerful Rotax V-Twin engine delivers crisp acceleration and plenty of torque, which comes in handy on any type of terrain. And the electronic throttle improves fuel economy, which means fewer fill ups.
Tight cornering performance
Gas-charged front shocks with an anodized-aluminum body and threaded preload adjustments for sport-tuned handling.
Responsive and easy
You can choose between the semi-automatic or manual 5-speed transmission, both with reverse. The semi-automatic transmission uses paddle shifting for faster, smoother shifts without a clutch lever or foot shifter. The manual transmission’s fluid motion stems from the 5-speed gearbox created specifically for Can-Am Spyder.
Designed for optimal control
Developed in partnership with BOSCH† and inspired by automotive technologies, the Vehicle Stability System integrates ABS, traction control, and stability control for an incredibly confident ride.
Higher-performance brakes specifically designed for Can-Am Spyder from the world leader in braking technology ensure excellent stopping power and consistent performance every time.
Positioned for better handling
Designed to increase tire-to-ground contact, the unique suspension geometry redirects forces to reduce load on suspension components and minimize body roll during cornering, which maximizes handling performance. The end result? Tighter turns, more precise handling, and a more comfortable ride.
More air where you need it
Optimized side panels improve heat management by letting more air inside the vehicle, keeping a cool look.
Just relax and enjoy
The easiest and best way to electronically set a comfortable pace. Just sit back and enjoy the scenery.
Take it with you
Keep your gear safe and protected. The Can-Am Spyder’s lockable front storage features 12 gallons (44 L) of watertight space.
The Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) helps protect the Can-Am Spyder from theft or other unauthorized use. The vehicle will not start unless the rider uses the correct coded electronic key. Your vehicle will be right where you left it.
Information at a glance
A vivid, full-color digital screen allows quick and seamless access to vehicle information, such as speed, trip distance, and RPM.
Good looks and better grip
15-inch front wheels with low-profile tires and new machined 6 twin-blade spoke Carbon Black Satin front wheels. Includes refined front fenders with integrated LED light pipes for a sportier look.
Choose from three eye-catching dual colour schemes, each with signature RS-S graphics for a striking look.
Make peace with the wind
Front fenders with integrated LED light pipes for greater visibility, improved aerodynamics, and a more striking look.
Make every ride that much more enjoyable on a top-quality seat skin with contrast stitching for a unique look.
Unique Carbon Black treatment on the handlebars, foot pegs, rear sprocket and springs adds a high-performance attitude.
