2016 Can-Am Spyder RSS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ROTAX 998 V-TWIN ENGINE

POWER AND PERFORMANCE

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

 

5-SPEED TRANSMISSION

RESPONSIVE

Choose between a semi-automatic or manual 5-speed transmission, both with reverse. The semi-automatic uses paddle shifters for fast, smooth shifts without a clutch lever or foot shifter. The manual transmission’s fluid motion is the result of the gearbox being created specifically for Can-Am Spyder.

 

VEHICLE STABILITY SYSTEM

SPORT-TUNED STABILITY

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 version is sport-tuned for a more permissive ride in twisties.


DYNAMIC POWER STEERING

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.


FOX PODIUM SHOCKS

PERFORMANCE, COMFORT AND CONTROL

Sport-tuned gas-charged front shocks feature anodized-aluminum bodies and threaded preload adjustments.


BREMBO BRAKING SYSTEM

SERIOUS STOPPING POWER

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.

Automatically set a comfortable pace so you can just sit back and enjoy the scenery.


PREMIUM COLOR DIGITAL GAUGE

YOUR ESSENTIALS, IN FULL COLOR

A vivid, full-colour digital screen allows quick access to key vehicle information such as speed, trip distance, and RPMs.
