Can-Am BRP Motorcycles

Updated February 2021:
Launched by BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) in 2007, the Can-Am Spyder has been changing the way people look at on-road recreation. Carrying on the tradition of a small but legendary motocross brand launched over 30 years ago, Can-Am has brought that spirit of innovation to the street.
Parent company BRP started out making snowmobiles, and it's not inaccurate to describe the Spyder as a snowmobile on wheels, a one-of-a-kind three-wheeled vehicle that invented its own category. Traction control, stability systems and automatic and semi-automatic transmissions make the Spyder like nothing else on the road.
The Can-Am Spyder lineup now consists of a triad of three-wheelers, ranging from the entry-level Ryker, to the sporty F3 models, and right up to the top-o'-the-line mile-crunching RT "baggers." This range of machines means the Canadian brand has something to offer everyone, from those looking for a fun afternoon ride to others looking to do serious travelling in an unconventional way.
Aside from Spyders and Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, BRP Can-Am manufactures a massive range of ATVs, side-by-sides, Sea-Doo watercraft, Evinrude and Rotax engines, etc. The powersports experience pool here is very deep.
Ryker Rally Edition

For 2021, there are two Rykers: the base model, with your choice of a Rotax 600cc twin-cylinder engine or 900cc Triple. For a few (thousand) dollars more (starting at $11,499, the Ryker Rally Edition pictured gets you the 900cc Rotax Triple engine, longer travel suspension, gravel-oriented tires, underbody protection, rider-comfort upgrades and more. Both Rykers really couldn't be much simpler to ride, thanks to their fully automatic CVT-type transmissions, with reverse.

Spyder F3

The five Spyder F3 models for 2021 embody what the Spyder has been about from the beginning: seriously sporty performance in a stable, easy-to-use package anybody can drive. Ride? Five packages, really, from the $15,999 base 105-horsepower F3 all the way up to the $24,499, 115 hp F3 Limited, complete with most of the comforts of home including 36.5 gallons of storage and a BRP six-speaker sound system.

All the F3s are powered by a 1,330cc Rotax triple engine working through a six-speed semi-automatic transmission for outstanding performance and ease of use. Vehicle Stability systems in all of them make mishaps in these remarkably nimble vehicles really difficult to achieve, and all but the base F3 get modern electronic conveniences including cruise control, that destress long days on the open road.

Spyder RT

Your three Spyder RTs are designed for ultimate touring comfort whether solo or two-up. Comfortable heated seats, touring floorboards, superior wind protection, and plenty of storage capacity ensure a memorable ride experience whether just down the road or cross country, and the 1330cc Rotax triple engine means you can get there pretty much as fast as you want.

The mid-level Spyder RT Limited pictured goes for $27,299.
