2010 Can-Am Spyder RS Roadster

The Can-Am Spyder RS Roadster. Riding Reinvented.

There’s nothing ordinary about the way it looks. Or the way it rides, for that matter. You gas, it comes to life.

You steer, it reacts and adapts. With its Rotax® 990 V-Twin engine and unique, three-wheeled stance, the Can-Am™ Spyder® roadster offers a bold, new way to experience open-road freedom. And it all starts at the end of your driveway.

A trip on the 2010 Can-Am Spyder RS roadster isn’t just an escape, it’s a full-on performance get-a-way.
