2009 Can-Am Spyder
Based on the company’s all-terrain-vehicle chassis, the two-passenger Can-Am Spyder is all about user friendliness. It has a comfortable, upright seating position similar to that of a personal watercraft or snowmobile; a lockable, 1.6-cubic-foot storage bin; and a single, foot-operated brake much like a car’s. Also, it won’t tip over when stopped, and it has a Bosch stability-control system as well as an optional automated manual gearbox. The company wants the on-road, open-air experience to appeal to a wider audience, those who are perhaps unfamiliar with or uncertain about motorcycles.
