BRP Adds A Touring Model To Its
CAN-AM Spyder Roadster Line-Up
BRP introduces the new Can-Am Spyder
RT roadster in response to specific consumer demand
for a touring platform. The 2010 Can-Am Spyder roadster
line-up now includes the Spyder RS (roadster sport)
and the Spyder RT (roadster touring) models.
The introduction of the touring model
coincides with a substantial gain in market presence
the heels of strong consumer demand since the roadster’s
launch more than two years ago.
Driven by a passionate owner community, the innovative
three-wheel concept has become a
global phenomenon in more than 50 countries to-date
with authorized BRP dealers.
“The Can-Am Spyder RS is already
a resounding market success, although, clearly, its
growth potential is only beginning to materialize,”
said Yves Leduc, vice-president - general
manager Can-Am and After Sales Operations, responsible
for North American Sales &
Marketing. ”We are delivering the expansion
of our Can-Am Spyder roadster line-up as
promised at its launch in 2007 and we believe the
announcement of the Spyder RT will even
further accelerate the momentum experienced thus far.”
The Can-Am Spyder RT roadster powered
by a Rotax 991 engine with Electronic Throttle
Control optimized for touring stays true to the brand’s
promise to deliver a perfect balance of
performance and peace of mind. The roadster features
the same acclaimed BOSCHengineered
Vehicle Stability System (VSS) as found in the Spyder
RS roadster, which includes
Anti-lock Brakes, Traction Control and Stability Control
systems. The VSS, coupled with the
inherent stability of the roadster’s ‘Y-architecture’
and overall ease of use reinvents riding for
enthusiasts of all skill levels.
BRP is also introducing an industry-first
optional RT622 trailer package*, providing an additional
622 litres (22 cu. ft) of storage, designed specifically
for the Spyder RT roadster and compatible
with the vehicle’s stability system.
“The introduction of the Can-Am
Spyder RT now provides options for sport and touring
enthusiasts alike,” said Chris Dawson, vice-president
and general manager, International
division. “BRP’s superior design and innovation
continues to deliver paradigm-shifting vehicles
that push the envelope, and the RT model is no exception.
The new platform goes well with
what touring riders demand and there is no doubt in
my mind the Can-Am Spyder RT is going to
forever change the touring motorcycle category.”
The Spyder RT roadster will be available
for trial at authorized Can-Am Spyder dealerships
fall. Consumers currently have the option to pre-order
Premiere Edition Spyder RT-S roadsters
for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2009.
