PURE PERFORMANCE

Take performance and style to the next level with the Spyder RS-S. FOX Podium shocks and enhanced Brembo brakes up the fun factor, while a premium sport appearance package – complete with machined wheels – screams performance.

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.

PERFORMANCE, COMFORT AND CONTROL

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

RESPONSIVE AND EASY

This 6-speed transmission offers the perfect balance of comfort and fuel economy thanks to a sophisticated hydraulic clutch system. Cruise comfortably at just 3,300 RPM with your choice of manual or semi-automatic operation. Both include reverse. The semi-automatic version uses left thumb and index finger paddle shifting.

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. The Spyder RS-S has a sport-tuned version, for a more permissive ride in twisties.

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.

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.

EASY TO MANEUVER

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.

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.

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.

JUST RELAX AND ENJOY
