2013 Can-Am Spyder RS-S Features and Benefits

Three wheels. Three different riding positions. – Some people love to attack tight corners. Others love to sit back and enjoy the scenery. Whatever your riding style, from sport to touring to somewhere in between, there’s a Can-Am roadster for you.

Spyder RT – Ultimate comfort, born for touring Upper body: Straight Knee bend: Relaxed+

Spyder ST – Sport-inspired, touring-ready Upper body: Slight forward lean Knee bend: Relaxed

Spyder RS – Sporty, performance-driven Upper body: Sporty forward lean Knee bend: Sporty

The three-wheeled design is just the beginning of the technology story. – Vehicle Stability System Developed in partnership with BOSCH‡ and inspired by automotive technologies, the Vehicle Stability System integrates ABS, traction control and stability control
for an incredibly confident ride.

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.

Anti-Theft System
The Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.™) helps protect the Can-Am roadster from theft or other unauthorized use. The vehicle will not start unless the rider uses the correctly coded electronic key.

Dynamic Power Steering
The electronically controlled power steering system provides the rider with a varying amount of assistance, depending on the speed of the vehicle. So it’s always easy to maneuver and steer, no matter what type of rider you are.

FOX PODIUM Shocks
Gas-charged front shocks with an anodized-aluminum body and threaded preload adjustments for sport-tuned handling.

S Trim Package AND Seat
Stitched seat skin and unique Carbon Black treatment on the handlebars, foot pegs, rear sprocket and springs add a high-performance attitude.

Multi-Function Color Display
Vivid, full-color display allows easier access to vehicle information, such as speed, trip distance and RPMs.

15-IN FRONT WHEELS AND REFINED FRONT FENDERS
Carbon Black wheels with twin-blade spokes and low-profile tires with exclusive treads. Plus refined front fenders with integrated LED light pipes for a more aggressive look.

Akrapovic Performance Exhaust
Lightweight with premium titanium shell construction and raw performance sound for a sportier, street legal ride. (Optional)
