CRUISING RIDING POSITION, CUSTOM FIT AND PERFORMANCE FOR A THRILLING RIDE...

The cruising riding position of the Spyder F3-S – customized just for you with the new UFit System – enables you to sit back and confidently take in the scenery...or the stares from onlookers. They'll look extra long at the machined deep black high gloss front wheels, red accents and added fender lighting. And with its Rotax 1330 ACE engine, Y-frame design and seven automotive technologies, you can count on a thrilling and confident ride.

BRP presents the 2015 Can-Am Spyder F3 roadster, a major evolution in riding – in both design and substance – for all open-air riders. The new Spyder F3 introduces a muscular design, cruising-riding position and custom fit for a thrilling ride, representing the latest industry-leading innovation from BRP and the Can-Am Spyder roadster.


The Spyder F3 comes with the proven Rotax 1330 ACE engine, which offers an exciting blend of power and torque, underlined by a new signature exhaust note. Additionally, the Spyder F3 features the exclusive UFit system, allowing riders to personalize their Spyder F3 with customized peg positions and handlebar options to express their own personality and riding style. The personalization is enhanced further by a range of new parts, accessories, clothing and hero packages, including the Touring Escape, Muscle Attitude and Urban Nights packages.


The backbone of the Spyder F3 is the Can-Am Spyder signature Y-frame design and an advanced Vehicle Stability System, developed in partnership with Bosch, which includes traction control, stability control, and anti-lock brakes. The result is precise handling and stability. Add the Spyder F3 low centre of gravity and cruising-riding position, and the rider gets unprecedented control to enjoy the freedom of the open road. As with all Can-Am Spyder models, the Spyder F3 offers both manual and semi-automatic transmissions.


“The Spyder F3 represents the next era for the Can-Am Spyder line-up and for on-road riding as a whole,” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager - Global Sales and Consumer Experience division. “The Spyder F3 truly delivers a soul-stirring riding experience, combining a muscular design, a custom-fit cruising-riding position, and an advanced stability system for one incredible ride. You have to ride it to believe it.”

Barring some form of disability, I don't see the point of any of the Can Ams. And even in that case, a trike, hack, or Morgan are honestly cool choices. Or heck, get an actual roadster, even a Miata will do. I just can't help thinking that anyone who owns one of these is a complete dork.

I love it. Especially this new iteration, I think they hit a home run with the styling.

Trikes are for fat dudes, hacks are for WWII buffs and the Morgan looks like it ought to have a scrub bucket with a washboard bolted to the tail and Jed Clampette behind the wheel. The Spyder is a beautiful machine, well appointed and slathered with a full compliment of modern doo-dads and whiz-bangs. I'd like to see the price come down a bit, and I'd like to see BRP put some more aggressive marketing behind this great little three-wheeler. But it's absolutely sexy, offers the open-air experience and, in my opinion, appropriately bridges the gap between adventurous and practical. I'm voting Awesome.

I voted: Cool.

There was no "meh" vote so to me, it bordered more on Cool and Uncool. That said, I've personally never been a fan of the Can-Am Spyder design. I do get it, but it just isn't for me. I gave it a Cool vote because it's good to see Can-Am, in spite of it's opposition and headwinds, to keep going with the Spyder lineup. Now with the new F3 line, Can-Am expands that line up. While I think there are just too many Spyder models now, Can-Am obviously doesn't and is willing to take the risk. And to me, that's what motorcycling is all about, risk vs enjoyment, thus Can-Am must be having a blast!

For price, I'd definitely like to see a Spyder around the $13k mark. Even the F3 (the cheapest F3) is $19,499 USD. But the 2015 Can-Am Spyder RS is close at US MSRP Price: $14,990.

I still haven't seen more than a handful on the roads, but they do turn heads.

I know it's not a motorcycle, but I'll be riding one when my legs don't work anymore, so I had to give it a cool. There is something weird about them that's for sure but you ride them on the outside and that's what it's all about for me. Still riding between the snow storms in Toronto, dodging the rain. "There ain't nothin like it" is right.

Though I do admire that old Morgan, yes indeed, I do. Where do I find one of those?

I'm going to take a different stance than last time and give it props for being an improvement on the original. Just like when atvs first came out, people hated them because they were not motorcycles, but really I need to ride one a judge it for what it is. If I could afford to do it I would buy my dad one tomorrow because his health has him no longer able to handle the two bikes he owns. Really until any of us ride one we are likely not qualified to say whether its good at its intended purpose or not. One thing it definitely is not though is a motorcycle.

Oddly enough, if Can-Am designed the Spyder to make it a leaning three wheeler like this custom job, I'd give it a cool, heck, even an awesome vote.

Leaning would move it closer to the motorcycle experience, while still retaining the Can-Am advantage of three contact patches.
