2013 Can-Am Spyder RS

Posted on by  

The Can-Am Spyder RS is a sporty three-wheeler designed with comfort and adrenaline in mind.

Thanks to its unique configuration, the Spyder RS offers an ergonomic riding position and a great stability at both low and high speeds. You also get a lot of storage places and a comprehensive list of technologies borrowed from the automotive realm, such as Vehicle Stability System and manual or semiautomatic transmissions.

At the heart of the Can-Am Spyder RS sits a 998 cc Rotax V-twin engine, liquid-cooled engine with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle control. The engine cranks out a maximum power of 100 hp (74.5 kW) at 7500 RPM and 80 lb-ft (108 Nm) at 5000 RPM.

The stopping power is assured by front 270 mm discs paired with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and a rear 270 mm disc grabbed by a Brembo single-piston floating caliper.
