Can-Am Spyder:

The Can-Am Spyder roadster from BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) is the first 'on-road' vehicle from the company. BRP have Previously produced jetskis, sport boats, snowmobiles, ATV's, go-karts and outboard motors etc.

The Can-Am Spyder looks damn neat.

The three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder, with two wheels in the front and one wheel in the rearlooks great. The Can-Am Spyder roadster is powered by a 990cc V-Twin engine designed and manufactured by BRP-Rotax, with its unique Y-shaped design.

José Boisjoli, president and CEO, BRP said "Our Can-Am Spyder roadster is the next dimension in open-road riding. A true paradigm shift, the Spyder roadster offers a balance of performance and peace of mind with features like the Vehicle Stability System (VSS), engineered in conjunction with Bosch, which includes anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control systems."

The Can-Am Spyder is aimed at more mature riders or "weekend warriors", those who want the thrill of open air motoring at a more intense level than a convertible car can offer, but slightly more refined than the experience found on a motorbike.
However there will probably be a lot of other people who are attracted to the Can-Am Spyder because of its unique character and head-turning design.

The BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster is built around a Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) frame, featuring a minimalist steel centre beam surrounding the engine. This construction technique minimizes the weld points for greater structural strength, and the light, slim frame offers further benefit by improving the handling and lowering the center of gravity.

Connected to the 106 horsepower 998 cc Rotax V-twin engine equipped with electronic fuel system management is a manual sequential 5-speed gearbox, complete with reverse, and designed specially for the Can-Am Spyder. Final drive is via a carbon-reinforced drive belt.

The BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster also features multiple ECU's (Electronic Control Units) which monitor a variety of functions including wheel slippage and digitally encoded security information. The vehicle also features ABS, traction control, stability control with roll-over mitigation, and a dynamic power steering system.
