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.

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.

Precision control

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.
