2013 Can-Am Spyder ST-S

Posted on by  

Meet the Can-AM Spyder ST-S which is the sporty version of the Spyder ST. This model comes with a series of small modifications that give it a slightly sportier personality. Among them you’ll find new 15 inch Carbon Black rims, a redesigned front fender, a sportier seat and a unique Carbon Black treatment on the handlebars, exhaust tip, footrests, rear sprocket and springs.

The Spyder ST-S is propelled by a 998cc Rotax V-twin, liquid-cooled engine with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle control. The engine puts out 100 hp (74.5 kW) at 7500 RPM and 80 lb-ft. (108 Nm) of torque at 5000 RPM. All this power is kept in leash by a standard 5-speed manual transmission with reverse (SM5). The engine is fed by a 6.6 gal (25 L) fuel tank that offers a fairly generous riding range.

The Can-Am Spyder ST-S is offered with a starting price of $20,099.

  • Wind Protection
    • Adjustable windshield and removable wind deflectors that allow you to customize your wind protection to match the weather conditions.
  • 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.
