Can-Am’s unique street model, the Spyder, is already three years old, sold in more than
58 countries and continues to expand from a design perspective. For 2011, the company added to its touring version with the RT-LTD roadster, featuring an integrated GPS, semi-rigid travel bags and travel cover.
BRP designers also made its top-of-the-line Spyder sport roadster, the RS-S, more aggressive with two new two-tone colour schemes and an array of blacked-out components.
“The rapidly growing group of Can-Am Spyder owners and dealers are not shy about sharing their ideas and suggestions, and our product development team put their feedback at the heart of the 2011 Spyder roadsters,”?Yves Leduc, vice president and general manager of BRP’s North America division, said in a press release.
With its unique Y-architecture — two wheels in front, one in back — the Can-Am Spyder roadster has an automotive-derived BOSCH-engineered vehicle stability system that integrates anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control.
Can-Am is adding more luxury to its touring model this year, including a premium audio system, adjust-on-the-fly rear air suspension and a handlebar-mounted Garmin Zumo 660 GPS.
For the Spyder RS-S, it has new metallic colour choices — Alloy Orange and Pure Magnesium — and a black two-tone colour scheme and a host of black elements. PSB
