2020 Can-Am Spyder RT And RT Limited First Look

The popular Spyder RT touring model has been around long enough that the time has come to take the three-wheel touring experience to the next level. (Can-Am/)

The big news from Can-Am is the unveiling of the all-new 2020 Spyder RT ($23,299) and RT Limited ($27,299). The model lineup receives a complete redesign this year that addresses the wants and needs of current and past Spyder RT owners. Primary focus was to improve long-distance comfort while making the ride more enjoyable and adding even more customization options so owners can tailor the Spyder RT to meet their needs.

The base-model 2020 Spyder RT looks almost the same except it is equipped with 10-spoke wheels and does not come with the passenger rear backrest/top case and basic sound system.

The entire Can-Am family of three-wheeled vehicles continues to evolve. First the Ryker showed up and now the venerable RT series gets a full redesign.

At the leading edge of the changes are redesigned bodywork, an improved seat, and updated rider interface. A new heated seat with improved lumbar support, adjustable electric windshield, and extended floorboards combine to make the ride more comfortable. A total of 47 gallons (177 liters) of storage space and the addition of LinQ modular components will allow owners to ride with the rear case or remove it and install one of the available options including a cooler, sport bag, or any other available LinQ accessories.

The new 2020 Can-Am RT (pictured here) and RT Limited are equipped with 23-inch touring floorboards so riders can now sit however they are most comfortable and change leg positions on long rides.

Spyders in the dust? Yeah, Can-Am is billing (or at least suggesting) these babies as adventure machines.

The Spyder RT and RT Limited are equipped with BRP Audio system with BRP Audio Premium six-speaker sound system with radio, USB, Bluetooth, and Ride Connect as well. The core of the Spyder continues to be the fuel-injected 115-hp Rotax triple with an assortment of rider-assist systems in place: Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, Power Steering, Hill Hold Control, and Digitally Encoded Security System (DESS). The RT Limited will be available in four colors: Deep Marsala Metallic (Red), Petrol Metallic Blue, Chalk White, and Asphalt Grey Metallic. The base-model 2020 Spyder RT will be offered in only Chalk White or Petrol Metallic Blue.

The storage capacity and stability of the Spyder RT lends itself well to hauling camping gear into the wild blue yonder for the weekend.

Touring comfort is what the Spyder RT Limited is all about. The adjustable windscreen, heated seats, and easy-to-reach controls for the entertainment system make it all possible.

“The new Can-Am Spyder RT reflects what we’ve learned from owners over the past 10 years since we first unveiled the touring lineup,” said Josée Perreault, senior vice president, Can-Am On-Road at BRP. “Spyder RT riders have explored millions of miles of open road, and we’ve reimagined the ideal road-trip vehicle based on their feedback. This is the result, and it truly is an ultimate riding experience.”

The 2020 Spyder RT and RT Limited feature a large panoramic 7.8-inch-wide LCD color display with BRP Connect, audio control keypad, and glove box with USB port.

Overall the angle Can-Am appears to be taking with the Spyder RT (possibly its entire lineup for that matter) is that these machines are for streets, dirt roads, and everywhere in between. Apparently it’s not just for eating up highway miles because these modern Spyders seem to be built as adventure-touring bikes in a three-wheeled sort of way. It makes sense though. The three-wheeled machines are stable even if the bodywork looks like a sportbike. Perhaps we will start seeing more aggressive knobby tires and skid plates on future models?
