Can-Am Spyder

The Can-Am Spyder roadster is a vehicle made by Bombardier Recreational Products that was released in 2007. Similar in layout to a modern snowmobile, the Spyder uses an ATV-like chassis with a single rear drive wheel, and two wheels in front for steering. The main feature of the vehicle is a stability system or VSS that monitors the vehicle at all times and intervenes in case one of the front wheels lifts off the ground (It cuts the engine and applies the brake on the outer wheel) A team of more than 30 engineers, technicians, designers, mechanics and buyers worked full time in Valcourt, Quebec to realise this project, this combination of expertise helped create the Spyder as it is known today.

Features

The motorcycle-like price and performance of the Spyder is combined with a significant set of safety features, such as traction and stability control, antilock brakes, and the stability of a three-wheel layout. In most US states the Spyder is licensed as a motorcycle, though it is much easier to achieve proficiency and confidence with the Spyder than with a motorcycle.

Although there are presently no saddlebags or topbox available (according to the company's web site), there is a luggage space under a "hood" at the front of the vehicle that is big enough for two helmets.

The Spyder also comes with additional convenience features such as simplified braking (front and rear brakes are both actuated by the same foot pedal), a true reverse gear, power steering and an optional electric shift transmission.
