The Spyder combines the open air exhilaration of two-wheeled transport with the stability of four, but it's not a motorbike and it's not a convertible sportscar. Rather than slapping on hard cases, a tall windscreen, and calling it a day, Can-Am set out to modify their Spyder from the chassis up for touring duty. The Y-shaped steel frame has been reinforced, and the wheels are now three inches further apart for stability.
The liquid-cooled 998cc v-twin now produces slightly more torque (80 lb-ft) which peaks earlier (5,200 rpm), and slightly less horsepower (100) at 7,500 rpm. Fly-by-wire throttle has been added, while the same basic A-arm suspension up front and single rear monoshock are retained, along with ABS, stability and traction control, and greater power steering assist. The semi-automatic (SE5) transmissions offer five forward gears and reverse. This is the top of the line RT-S model which was $27499 new. It has front storage, side cases, a glovebox and a top case for a total of 155 liters of storage (10 more than the Honda Gold Wing), it can be mated to a trailer for more storage as it is equipped with a swingarm-mounted hitch that runs $499. All models come with an electric windscreen, cruise control, heated driver grips, and a 12-volt outlet. The Audio & Convenience package adds a two-speaker AM/FM audio system with iPod integration, heated passenger grips, and remote front cargo release. The RT-S ups the ante with two more speakers, fog lamps, 5-LED accent lighting, shiny trim, and remote adjustable suspension. This example comes equipped with highway pegs and rear trunk rack t
