Technology
Advanced Technology lets you focus more on the thrill of the ride. Go deep into the Can-Am Spyder’s body and brains.

Skelton
The Can-Am Spyder rides on a steel spine and sports car suspension, making it lightweight, yet tough. Can-Am Spyder is built around a Surrounding Spar Technology (SST™) frame, featuring aminimalist steel center beam,surrounding the engine.It minimizes weld points for greater structural integrity.This light and slim frame provides a low center of gravity to enhance stability and handling.

Muscle
The Can-Am Spyder’s fluid motion systems from a smooth 5-speed gearbox and final belt drive. Fluid motion stems from the smooth 5-speed gearbox created specifically for the Spyder. It features a true mechanical reverse. An optional thumb-shift sequential electronic transmission offers even greater ease of use.The final beltdrive provides ultra-smooth gearing and easy maintenance.

Heart
To bring the Spyder to life, BRP started with legendry Rotax V990 engine, which comes with an impressive track record in racing and adventure motorcycling. Providing life under the hood is a Rotax® 990cc, V-twin liquid cooled engine. It delivers a strong push and responsive acceleration throughout the power band. Advanced features include double overhead cams and a state-of-the-art electronic fuel management system.
