This is not a motorcycle, nor is it a car. This is a tricycle but with two wheels on the front. In short – this is a very strange creation.
Spyder is the work of company Can-Am, a subsidiary of a manufacturer of snowmobiles Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), so it should not be surprising that it resembles one.
This motorcycle-tricycle is made on a chassis that resembles those of an ATV vehicle, called SST (Surrounding Spar Technology), while the front suspension is automotive, with a power steering.
There are four variants of Spyder, F3-S, F3-T, RT-S and RT Limited, and they are powered by either a rotary turbocharger of 998 cubic, or a V-twin rotating volume of 1,330 cubic meters. Both aggregates have electronic gas, while among the other additons should mention ABS, slip control and stability control.
Spyder also has two types of transmission: five-speed manual with reverse, five-speed semi-automatic, six-speed manual with reverse and six-speed semi-automatic.
Initially launched in 2007, Spyder has so far sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
