The Can-Am Spyder roadster from BRP (Bombardier Recreational
Products) is the first 'on-road' vehicle from the company. Previously
BRP have produced jetskis, sport boats, snowmobiles, ATV's,
go-karts and outboard motors.
The three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder, with two wheels in the front
and one in the rear, offers an alternative and attractive look.
The Can-Am Spyder roadster is powered by a proven 990cc V Twin
engine designed and manufactured by BRP-Rotax, with its unique
Y-shaped design, the Can-Am Spyder roadster could be described
as part motorcycle and part convertible sports car.
"Our Can-Am Spyder roadster is the next dimension in open-road
riding. A true paradigm shift, the Spyder roadster offers a
balance of performance and peace of mind with features like
the Vehicle Stability System (VSS), engineered in conjunction
with Bosch, which includes anti-lock brakes, traction control
and stability control systems," said José Boisjoli,
president and CEO, BRP.
The Can-Am Spyder is aimed at more mature riders or "weekend
warriors," people who want the thrill of open air motoring
at a more intense level than a convertible car can offer, but
slightly more refined than the experience found on a motorbike.
However there will probably be a lot of other people who are
attracted to the Can-Am Spyder because of its unique character
and head-turning design.
The BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster is built around a Surrounding
Spar Technology (SST) frame, featuring a minimalist steel centre
beam surrounding the engine. This construction technique minimizes
the weld points for greater structural strength, and the light,
slim frame offers further benefit by improving the handling
and lowering the center of gravity.
Connected to the 106 horsepower 998 cc Rotax V-twin engine equipped
with electronic fuel system management is a manual sequential
5-speed gearbox, complete with reverse, and designed specially
for the Can-Am Spyder. Final drive is via a carbon-reinforced
The BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster also features multiple ECU's
(Electronic Control Units) which monitor a variety of functions
including wheel slippage and digitally encoded security information.
The vehicle also features ABS, traction control, stability control
with roll-over mitigation, and a dynamic power steering system.
Instrumentation featured on the Can-Am Spyder include; speedometer,
tachometer, fuel gauge, trip meters, engine temperature, ambient
temperature and gear position.
Initially, for 2007, the BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster is offered
in a choice of two colors, Millennium Yellow of Full Moon silver.
Review by: Tom Simmons
I just came back from a test ride, and I am very impressed.
The Can-Am Spyder starts and runs well and handling and braking
are a dream. My yellow model garnered a lot of positive looks
from people on the streets. They wanted to know what it was;
a bike or a car. Seating is comfortable and controls are easily
accessible. Since these were preproduction bikes, we had strange
things showing up on the instrumentation, but it wasn't serious
and we were assured that all production models wouldn' t have
this problem. I believe them.
The bike is big, but easy to handle and I think they will convert
non-riders into riders.

Can you give me any insite with what could be wrong with my
(1) the engine shuts off
(2) the engine lite comes on and goes out without any codes
(3) the trans won't shift out of 1st (it's an auto shift) or
it's very hard to shift and get into neutral
It's been in the shop for 5 weeks, the main computer and the
shift module and the wiring harness has been replaced. It only
has approx. 450 miles on it.
Just seeking some answers that the servicing dealer and Can-Am
can not answer for me?
