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

ROTAX 1330 ACE ENGINE

POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT

The Rotax 1330 ACE engine is an in-line triple-cylinder configuration for maximum torque in every gear, to deliver excellent roll-on acceleration and throttle response. It’s also efficient, with the ability to ride up to 252 miles (406 km) on a single tank*. Plus, it’s extremely low maintenance.

*Tested at constant speed. Fuel mileage may vary depending personal riding habits, weather conditions, trip length, vehicle condition, vehicle configuration and other conditions. Break-in mileage may vary.



6-SPEED TRANSMISSION

SMOOTH OPERATOR

This 6-speed transmission offers the perfect balance of comfort and fuel economy thanks to a sophisticated hydraulic clutch system. Cruise comfortably at low RPMs with the semi-automatic transmission, including reverse. The semi-automatic transmission uses thumb and index finger paddle shifting.

 

VEHICLE STABILITY SYSTEM

OPTIMUM 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.


SACHS BIG-BORE SHOCKS

ENGINEERED FOR A SMOOTHER RIDE

These premium wide-diameter shocks ensure a plush ride even on bumpy backcountry roads and are quiet at all speeds.


ECO MODE SMART ASSIST

SHIFT TO SAVE

Optimize your shifting behaviour with the ECO Mode Smart Assist. A gauge light
indicates the best time to shift to reduce your fuel consumption on long trips.


CARGO SPACE

TAKE IT
WITH YOU

Keep your gear safe and protected with the trademark Spyder lockable watertight front cargo space, plus two side compartments, a rear compartment, and a glove box for a total of 41 US gallons (155 L) of cargo capacity.


TOURING SADDLE

COMFORTABLE AS YOUR COUCH

A premium saddle with lumbar support and passenger backrest provides maximum comfort during long journeys. Ready to accommodate the driver backrest (sold as an accessory).


RT LUXURY FEATURES

CHANGE WITH THE WEATHER

Activate the cruise control, then sit back and enjoy the scenery. Thermal rider grips keep your hands warm, while an electric adjustable windshield enables you to quickly react to changing weather conditions.


AUDIO SYSTEM

ON-ROAD ENTERTAINMENT

Enjoy the full benefits of an AM/FM audio system. Rear speakers with independent audio control let you spoil your passenger even more.


DYNAMIC POWER STEERING

EASY TO MANOEUVER

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 manoeuver and steer.
