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.
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 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 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.”
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?
For 2020, Can-Am continues to offer the smaller, more playful single-seat Ryker ($8,499) as well as the sporty Spyder F3 (starting at $15,999).
