2014 Can-Am Spyder RT Features and Benefits:

Can-Am Spyder RT

New Rotax 1330 ACE engine

Our best touring engine ever, the new Rotax 1330 ACE engine is configured with three in-line cylinders. It produces high-torque response in every gear and 40% more low-end torque. But torque doesn’t come at the cost of fuel economy or CO2 emissions. Ride for up to 252 miles at 62 mph (406 km at 100 km/h)* on one tank. On top of that, ride more and spend less, thanks to the low vehicle maintenance. Even the sound it makes while on the road is unique and impressive, with the in-line configuration producing a refined, seductive quality that stands out from the motorcycle crowd.

New 6-speed Transmission

Can-Am Spyder RT

You can cruise comfortably at 3,300 RPMs with the outstanding ride of this new 6-speed transmission. The new Spyder RT is optimized to deliver a smooth ride for you and your passenger, thanks to its long-ratio sixth gear and new hydraulic clutch activation system with electronic pressure control. Pass through town without downshifting. Just relax and take in the scenery.

New ECO mode smart assist

Optimize your shifting behavior with the new ECO™ mode smart assist. Combined with the fuel efficiency of the Rotax 1330 ACE engine and new 6-speed transmission, it reduces your fuel consumption on long trips.

1200w Alternator

Can-Am Spyder RT

Get 85% more power for your electronic accessories. A new total capacity of 1200 watts, instead of the previous maximum of 650 watts, lets you enjoy more accessories on your Spyder RT.

New Comfort seat

Sit back and enjoy the ride with a comfort seat complete with lumbar support. It relaxes the driver’s knees and upper body, making it perfect for all types of riders regardless of height. It’s also driver backrest ready, so a foldable, color-matched backrest can easily be added.

Refined Front design and heat management

Can-Am Spyder RT

BRP engineers made room for the new Rotax® 1330 ACE™ high-torque engine by creating a new fascia design, intensifying the RT’s unique blend of elegance and power. BRP’s engineers also improved heat management by doubling radiator capacity and moving them to the front of the A-arms – away from the rider and passenger. The fans include a reverse mode that blows hot air away from the rider when traveling at a slower speed. This ensures more comfort for both rider and passenger.

New Sachs shocks

The Spyder RT includes new shocks from SACHS, one of the premier manufacturers in the business. These shocks build upon optimum suspension geometry and create an incredible new standard. They feature a bigger piston diameter and better damping capacity, which gives you more comfort on bumpy, backcountry roads.
