News release

When it comes to adventurous travel, why pile in a minivan or pay for an uncomfortable berth in a cross-country train or bus? Where’s the enjoyment or freedom in that?

A far more alluring way to journey down the open road is aboard the seat on one of the Can-Am Spyder RT roadsters. This highly innovative and stylish touring three-wheel roadster is made to explore. It confidentially and sophisticatedly revolutionizes travel by combining the open-air freedom of a motorcycle and the peace of mind of a luxury car.

For 2013, BRP has added a host of new features across the lineup. At the heart of the changes is a new chassis that delivers even more comfort and performance for the touring enthusiast. The new chassis features revised front-end geometry that, combined with a revamped front suspension calibration, improves overall cornering and handling.

That isn’t all. Every Spyder RT model now comes standard with AM/FM stereo and rear passenger controls, and an updated heat shield for more driver and passenger comfort. All models also have larger front wheels (15 inches) and lower-profile front tires.

New this year is a full Brembo braking system with larger calipers and larger brake discs, and a next-generation BOSCH ABS — all of which combine to give the Spyder RT an improvement of 10 percent on its braking distance.

There are also select changes depending on package, like a footboard option for select Spyder RT-S and all Spyder Limited models. Stylish Carbon Black-colored accent and chrome parts are available, as is the revised front fender design on select packages as well. For coloration, 2013 also sees exciting color options come to the entire lineup, too.

The Can-Am Spyder RT roadster lineup is separates itself from the other roadster models thanks to its luxury-car-inspired composition and distinct outer form. This distinguishing style creates a fit-and-finish that’s unique to the industry and attention grabbing. Feature comforts include industry-leading Dynamic Power Steering (DPS), electronic cruise control, 41 gallons (155 L) of onboard storage, passenger-themed ergonomics, adjustable electric windshield, wind deflectors, heated grips, high-end saddle with integrated lumbar supports and much more.

All the Can-Am Spyder RT roadsters are delightful at cruising speeds, but their liquid-cooled 998cc Rotax V-Twin engine has the necessary torque and performance.

Electronic fuel injection ensures instantaneous throttle response and improved fuel efficiency. The Rotax mill puts out 80 lb.-ft. of torque at just 5,000 rpm, so it is exceptional at handling the extra weight of fully loading the cargo holds, a passenger and even a pull-behind trailer. An optional trailer from BRP, the RT-622, offers an additional 164 gallons (622 L) of storage.

A traditional 5-speed gearbox with foot shift and manual clutch (SM5) comes standard on the standard Spyder RT roadster and includes reverse. A semiautomatic, five-speed (including reverse) electronic transmission (SE5) requires no clutching or manual shifts and is available on all the other Spyder RT roadster variations. Shifting is done via the left thumb and left forefinger.

The Can-Am Spyder RT roadster is available in three packages (standard Spyder RT, Spyder RT-S and Spyder RT Limited). The standard Spyder RT is basis for each model, but then each package adds another level of technology and an enhanced level of sophistication. Add-ons include such items as: footboards, new fender design, push- button controls, adjustable rear air suspension, GPS navigation, LED lighting, exclusive colors, exclusive wheels and more.

The Can-Am Spyder RT roadster is more capable of short or long getaways thanks to the bevy of upgrades and revisions to the chassis, braking system, suspension, better heat shielding and more. For 2013, the Spyder RT roadster features a transmission option and a standard AM/FM radio with passenger controls and iPod integration cable. All these important improvements, along with the model’s proven Rotax engine performance, innovative Y architecture and unmatched handling, make the Spyder RT roadster the answer for those looking to escape and explore in style.

Key Spyder RT Technologies

Chassis

Y architecture

With its two-wheels up front and single rear wheel in the rear, the Can-Am Spyder RT roadster is defined by its Y architecture. This configuration also provides

the open-air feel of a motorcycle, but complements that feature with the stability reminiscent of a dialed-in sports car — something BRP calls the Y Factor.

Updated SST frame

Proven on the BRP Can-Am ATVs, the updated Surrounding Spar Technology frame, which is an exclusive technology to BRP and is designed to reduce weight while at the same time offering increased durability with less parts. This chassis also contributes to the Spyder RT roadster’s low center of gravity and impressive handling.

Double A-arm front suspension with anti-roll bar

The revised double A-arm front suspension geometry, which includes dual shocks and more than 6.85 inches (174 mm) of suspension travel — was built to please with its precision handling and point-and-shoot dynamics. A standard anti-roll bar ensures optimal cornering while delivering a smooth and stable ride. The Spyder RT model has a slightly wider track than the Spyder RS roadster model for improved stability and handling.

And in 2013 the suspension calibration is revised across the line.

Rear swing arm with shock

The single-rear wheel-and-tire set-up supplies superb traction and acceleration while the single shock absorber — with pneumatic adjustable preload — is more than capable of soaking up the road and providing a cushioned ride.

Electronically adjusted rear suspension

Onboard controls located in the console allow the driver to pneumatically adjust the rear air suspension preload to optimize ride quality for varying passenger and cargo configurations. [Standard on Spyder RT-S and Spyder RT Limited only]

Dynamic Power Steering

DPS is electronically controlled and provides the rider with varying levels of steering assist. The system is speed sensitive and also factors in steering angle and acceleration, to keep the rider comfortable and in control no matter the situation or speed.

Powertrain

Rotax 998cc V-twin engine

The Rotax 998cc engine in the Spyder RT has peak torque available at lower rpm 80 lb.-ft. of torque @ 5,000 rpm). The muscular Rotax engine has proven itself in motorcycle racing over the years and is as powerful as it is reliable. Electronic fuel injection means precise throttle response, crisp acceleration, reliable starting and improved fuel economy.

Belt Drive

The Spyder RT roadster features a final belt drive, as opposed to a chain or shaft drive design, which attaches to the rear sprocket. This set-up efficiently and smoothly transfers power to the ground and offers simple maintenance.

SM5 transmission

The SM5 transmission features a smooth-shifting 5-speed gearbox with reverse with a traditional manual clutch and foot shifter.

SE5 transmission

The optional semi-automatic transmission uses an electronic 5-speed gearbox with reverse that is controlled by the rider’s left thumb and forefinger. Shift up using the left thumb lever and then down shift using the left forefinger. The intelligent system also automatically downshifts when the roadster comes to a stop.

Reverse

The easy-to-use reverse mechanism features a push-button design and improves maneuvering in tight areas.

Vehicle Stability System

VSS, developed in partnership with Bosch, incorporates proven technologies borrowed from the automotive industry and combines those with the Y architecture to create unmatched control during adverse situations. The engineers behind this system seamlessly integrated Stability Control, Traction Control and an Anti-lock braking system and specifically calibrated VSS for use in the Spyder roadster and its three-wheel configuration. The Vehicle Stability System provides peace of mind for an incredibly confident ride.

The VSS also earned the 2010 Automotive News PACE awards for innovation partnership.

Stability Control System

This system relates the Spyder roadster’s intended direction, using inputs for handlebar and throttle positioning and the vehicle’s actual direction and then acts seamlessly and immediately to correct the situation. If they are not the same, the system reduces engine rpm and/or individually slows (actively brakes) the wheels to correct the course.

Next generation BOSCH Anti-lock Braking System

An updated ABS system from BOSCH not only helps to maintain the vehicle’s maneuverability during aggressive braking situations, but it also gives the Spyder roadster a shorter stopping distance than most automobiles. The system uses integrated wheel sensors to determine if a wheel is at risk of locking under braking. To keep maneuverability optimal, the system seamlessly and rapidly engages and disengages (or pulses) the brake to allow the driver to steer in the intended direction.

Traction Control System

If the rear wheel loses traction, the TCS will sense it and instantaneously reduces engine rpm until sufficient grip returns.

Convenience/Comfort

Key to the Spyder RT touring roadster experience; a gratifyingly comfortable experience.

Electric adjustable windshield

The windshield on the Spyder RT roadsters easily adjusts in height with the press of a button.

Ultra Comfort Touring Saddle

Ergonomically designed, the first-class seat includes a passenger backrest and driver lumbar support.

Multi-function gauge display

The amber-colored multi-function Dot-matrix display offers improved clarity for night riding. It also includes a digital speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip and hour meters, gear position, temperature, engine lights, electronic fuel gauge and clock.

Onboard Storage

When riding long distances, it’s reassuring to know the Spyder RT roadster has 41 gallons (155 L) of storage standard. Storage areas include a lockable front trunk, lockable glove box and both side and rear compartments.

D.E.S.S. security system

Can-Am Spyder RT

BRP engineers added an extra level of security with the proven Digital Encoded Security System. This system requires the properly coded electronic key in order to operate the roadster.

Passenger comfort items

Passenger-controlled heated handgrips offer two intensity levels and add an extra level of comfort in cooler temperatures. Integrated armrests and manually adjustable floorboards provide a more comfortable perch for the rear rider. And in 2013 the passenger can control the volume and choice of music across the lineup.

Cruise control

Electronic cruise control adds another layer of luxury and makes longer rides more comfortable for the driver.

Snapshot:

From its electronically adjustable rear air-control suspension to its passenger accommodations and stellar fit-and-finish, the Can-Am Spyder RT-S roadster makes long journeys very enjoyable. This touring model received selected updates and important front suspension changes for an improved riding experience. The Spyder RT-S is available in four attractive color schemes, including a new Circuit Yellow Metallic color.

The highly attractive Quantum Blue Metallic, Viper Red and Pure Magnesium Metallic also return for 2013.
