Can-Am Spyder RT Roadster
Purpose-built for the extended road trip
Your adventure begins here. With the 2012 Spyder RT, you get plenty of standard touring features that enchance comfort and ridability.
The standard Can-Am Spyder RT roadster is more capable of short or long getaways thanks to the bevy of upgrades it received last year, including improved suspension, enhanced ventilation and other ergonomic refinements. For 2012, the Spyder RT roadster features a new Dot-matrix display color for improved visual clarity on night excursions. All these important improvements, along with the model's proven Rotax engine performance, innovative Y architecture and unmatched handling, make the Spyder RT roadster the answer for those looking to escape and cruise in style.
Grab a partner. A road map. And a change of clothes. Then block out your schedule for the next couple of days. The Can-Am Spyder RT delivers ultimate comfort and convenience for extended getaways. It’s the perfect touring vehicle.
When it comes to adventurous travel, the perfect way to journey down the open road is aboard the seat on the Can-Am® Spyder® RT. This highly innovative and stylish touring three-wheel roadster is made to explore. It confidentially and sophisticatedly revolutionizes travel by combining the open-air freedom of a motorcycle and the peace of mind of a luxury car. Whether it's a solo getaway or a two-up touring vacation, the luxurious Can-Am Spyder RT lineup supplies comfort, convenience and performance levels to make the trek that much more enjoyable.
BRP has added a new LCD display coloration on all
Can-Am Spyder RT roadster packages. Aside from the base Spyder RT roadster
model, all Spyder RT packages are also available in a new color schemes. Quantum
Blue Metallic (standard Spyder RT Audio & Convenience and Spyder RT-S), Lava
Bronze Metallic (Spyder RT Limited) are new and join Pure Magnesium Metallic,
Viper Red and Pearl White as available color choices in the lineup. The Spyder
RT-S roadster will wear exclusively the Dark Mist Gray colored six-spoke front
wheels to add to its edgier appearance. Finally, the Spyder RT Limited package,
introduced a year ago, gets a host of chrome accents and seat upgrade for an
even more refinded look.
All the Can-Am Spyder RT are a pleasure at cruising speeds, but their liquid-cooled 998cc Rotax V-Twin engine calibrated for touring has the necessary torque and performance. Electronic fuel injection ensures instantaneous throttle response and improved fuel efficiency. The Rotax mill puts out 80 lb.-ft. of torque at just 5,000 rpm, so it is exceptional at handling the extra weight of fully loading the cargo holds, a passenger and even a pull-behind trailer. An optional trailer from BRP, the RT-622, offers an additional 164 gallons (622 L) of storage.
A traditional 5-speed gearbox with foot shift and manual clutch (SM5) comes standard on the standard Spyder RT roadster and includes reverse. A semi-automatic, five-speed (including reverse) electronic transmission (SE5™) requires no clutching or manual shifts and is available on all the other Spyder RT roadster variations. Shifting is done via the left thumb and left forefinger. The Can-Am Spyder RT roadster is available in four packages (standard Spyder RT, Spyder RT Audio & Convenience, Spyder RT-S and Spyder RT Limited). The standard Spyder RT is basis for each model, but then each package adds another level of technology and an enhanced level of sophistication.
Add-ons include such items as a sound system with iPod compatability, AM / FM and (optional) satellite radio, push-button controls, adjustable rear air suspension, GPS navigation, LED lighting, exclusive colors and more.
