2015 Can-Am Spyder RS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

POWER AND CONTROL

The Rotax 998cc V-twin engine delivers crisp acceleration while 7 automotive technologies including ABS, traction control, and semi-automatic transmission put you in control so that your ride is as confident as it is exhilarating.

POWER AND PERFORMANCE

With 998cc, the powerful Rotax V-Twin engine delivers crisp acceleration and plenty of torque. Its electronic throttle delivers instant response and optimum fuel economy.

RESPONSIVE AND EASY

You can choose between the semi-automatic or manual 5-speed transmission, both with reverse. The semi-automatic transmission uses paddle shifting for faster, smoother shifts without a clutch lever or foot shifter. The manual transmission’s fluid motion stems from the 5-speed gearbox created specifically for Can-Am Spyder.

DESIGNED FOR OPTIMAL CONTROL

Developed in partnership with BOSCH and inspired by automotive technologies, the Vehicle Stability System integrates anti-lock brakes, traction control, and stability control for confidence taking on the open road.

PRECISION CONTROL

Higher-performance brakes specifically designed for Can-Am Spyder from the world leader in braking technology ensure excellent stopping power and consistent performance every time.

EASY TO MANEUVER

The electronically controlled power steering system provides a varying amount of assistance, depending on the speed of the vehicle. So it’s always easy to maneuver and steer.

POSITIONED FOR BETTER HANDLING

The bike’s unique suspension geometry redirects forces to reduce load on suspension components, minimize body roll during cornering, and maximize tire-to-ground contact. The end result? Tighter turns, more precise handling and a more comfortable ride.

TIGHT CORNERING PERFORMANCE

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

IMPROVED AIRFLOW

The side panel design helps ensure your ride on the Spyder RS is comfortable through every twist and turn.

MORE AIR WHERE YOU NEED IT

Side panel design manages engine heat for more performance and a swoopy, fluid style.

MORE FOR YOUR RIDE

Generous storage, multi-function gauges, and an anti-theft system make it easy to get the most out of your ride.

BRING IT ALONG

Keep your gear safe and protected. The Can-Am Spyder’s trademark lockable front storage features 12 gallons (44 L) of watertight space.

CONSTANT PROTECTION

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

INSTANT ACCESS TO INFORMATION

State-of-the-art LCD and analogue gauges display all critical information so you can access fuel levels, speed, and more with just a glance.

TURN HEADS WITHOUT TRYING

There’s nothing like the Spyder RS on the road and people notice.

STANDOUT LOOKS AND ENHANCED GRIP

Metallic Silver, twin-spoke wheels and low-profile tires with exclusive tread pattern delivers better road feel and cornering while adding a striking look.

SLEEK AND SPORTY

The low profile design contributes to the roadster’s performance look.
