The Can-Am Spyder was already a good looking trike, but the RS-S raises the bar even higher in terms of style, featuring a tasty appearance and plenty of other welcomed features. Among them you will find machined wheels, a two-tone paint job, carbon black parts and a black Suede seat with red stitching.

At the heart of the Can-Am Spyder RS-S sits a Rotax 998 Cc V-twin, liquid-cooled engine with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle control. The engine generates a maximum output of 100 Hp (74.5 KW) at 7500 rpm and 80 Lb-Ft. (108 Nm) of torque at 5000 rpm.

The handling is assured by gas-charged front shocks with an anodized-aluminum body and threaded preload adjustments.

Prices for the Can-Am Spyder RS-S start at $18,199.
