"Since its official public unveiling in February of this year, the Spyder has been a hot topic among powersport enthusiasts, open-road newcomers and the media alike," said Chris Dawson, head of the Spyder program at BRP. "In fact, during the worldwide launch event in San Diego, Jay Leno made a personal request for the first Spyder off the production line -; and we're certain it will be a great addition to his famed garage."
The Spyder roadster is powered by a ROTAX 990 V-Twin engine, which produces 106 horsepower and a top speed of 110 miles per hour. While it is currently offered with a sequential manual five-speed transmission, an electronic, clutchless version will also be available in 2008. The Spyder roadster, which can also carry a passenger, has many exciting add-on options available -; including a backrest, rear rack, racing exhaust pipe and custom wheel kits. With the modernization the Can-Am roadster has brought to the world of powersports, don't be surprised to see these vehicles turning heads on a freeway or local street near you soon.
The Can-Am Spyder roadster starts at $14,999. For more information, visit www.tryspyder.com.
