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.

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.

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.

Comfort:

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.

Constant protection

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.

Style:
