Many men with money are always looking for new toys to fill their free time the most spectacular. Because Transformers is not currently a buy from dealer across the street, those who want something special can switch to a Can-Am Spyder Roadster RT.

This is actually a tricycle super sport motorcycle in its own right which has two wheels mounted on the front. Or a snowmobile with wheels. Or a quad which was mounted the back of a motorcycle super sport. Or three-wheeled ski jet.

All this comes to mind when you get in the saddle and a part of your brain begins to contradict the thoughts that tell you that you will knock the first corner you will get faster, because you feel very safe.
Can-Am Spyder Roadster is created by BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) and is the first vehicle produced by this company intended for roads. Until now they used to produce only BRP jet skies, boats, snowmobiles, ATVs and carts.

Can-Am Spyder is powered by a 990 cc V Twin, BRP-Rotax subsidiary product. The engine generates 106 hp and is equipped with an electronic power management with a gearbox combustible and five-speed manual. Driving force is transmitted to the rear wheel via a chain of carbon fiber.

Thanks to a unique Y-shaped design, the vehicle with three wheels, two in front and one back, can be described as a combination between a motorcycle and a convertible. BRP Can-Am has a built-ECU (Electronic Control Units) that can monitor a variety of functions, including the degree of adhesion of the wheel. The vehicle is also equipped with ABS and traction control system.

Can-Am Spyder Roadster RT is built on an Ultra-light steel frame and the suspension configuration comes from the two worlds that merge in the creation of the auto and motto. The rear suspension consists of a damper adjustable mono shock, swing arm connected to a traditional motorcycle. The front two wheels are connected to the chassis by a suspension with double wishbones.

The engine is a Rotax V-liter two-cylinder and two overhead camshafts, liquid cooled. It produces an output of 106 horses like I said before, that while the empty weight of Can-Am Spyder is only 316 kg.

In the case this motorcycle there is not a clutch and the gears change under the lever on the left handlebar, from a paddle + / -, which acts with the index finger for downgrading and the big finger for minus.
