BRP HAS ADDED a Touring model to its Can-Am Spyder line-up, pushing the line-up to two models.
The addition of the Spyder RT (Roadster Touring) follows, according to BRP's Spyder Product Manager Rohan Slater, "a substantial gain in market presence" since the Roadster Sport's launch two years ago.
"The Can-Am Spyder RS is already a resounding market success, although, clearly, its full growth potential is only beginning to materialise," Mr Slater said.
"We are delivering the expansion of our Can-Am Spyder roadster line-up as promised at its launch in 2007 and believe the announcement of the Spyder RT will further accelerate the momentum experienced thus far."
Powered by the same Rotax 990cc V-twin engine as its Sport sibling (and the Aprilia RSV1000), the Spyder RT also features a BOSCH-engineered Vehicle Stability System that includes Anti-lock Brakes, Traction Control and Stability Control.
BRP has designed a trailer package for the RT - the RT622 - which is compatible with the trike's vehicle stability system and offers an additional 622 litres of storage.
The BRP Can-Am Spyder RT will be available from early 2010, and customers can pre-order now.
Exact sales figures for the Can-Am Spyder Roadster Sport were not available at the time of publishing.
