2013 Can-Am Spyder ST

Posted on by  

Meet the Can-AM Spyder ST - a comfortable three-wheeler that offers ample storage (44 L), a big windscreen and a fairly comfortable riding position. You also get a lot of modern technologies borrowed from the automotive industry such as power steering, vehicle stability system, anti lock brakes and traction control.

In terms of power the Can-Am Spyder ST is packed with a 998cc Rotax V-twin engine, liquid-cooled unit with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle control. Fire up the engine and you’ll be assaulted by a maximum power of 100 hp (74.5 kW) achieved at 7500 RPM and a peak torque of 80 lb-ft. (108 Nm) at 5000 RPM.

The speed is kept in check by a set of front 270 mm discs with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and a rear single 270 mm disc with Brembo single-piston floating caliper.

Features

  • Stability Control System
    • The stability control assesses your intended direction via the handlebar and determines the vehicle’s appropriate response. The system individually applies the brakes to the wheels and/or reduces excess engine torque until control is regained.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
    • Sensors monitor the rotation of all three wheels. If any of the wheels is at risk of locking, ABS reduces brake pressure on it. This intervention repeats in rapid succession and can be performed independently on each wheel, allowing for maximum braking performance.
  • Traction Control System
    • Whenever the Traction Control System detects excessive rear wheel spin (e.g., in slippery conditions), it reduces engine torque by regulating engine ignition and fuel injection. This enables the roadster to accelerate with minimum corrective input from the rider.
  • Sport-Touring Seat
    • Firm and comfortable seat for handling tight corners as well as long-distance rides.
  • Ample Storage
    • Lockable front storage with 12 gallons (44 L) of watertight space and enough room for two helmets. Multi-Function Color Display Vivid, full-color digital screen allows easier access to vehicle information, such as speed, trip distance and RPMs.
