Can-Am Spyder | Three Wheeler

Cam-Am Spyder

It can be a fine line between skepticism and cynicism, and Can-Am’s genre-busting three-wheel Spyder puts that boundary to the test. Designed for enthusiasts for Bombardier’s core recreational products—Can-Am ATVs, Ski-Doo snowmobiles and Sea-Doo watercraft—rather than motorcyclists, the Spyder is a fascinating bridge vehicle between small sports cars and motorcycles.

Powered by the same 998cc Rotax motor you will find in Aprilia sport bikes (though retuned for torque), the Spyder acquitted itself on the street quite nicely on our test ride, particularly if you don’t expect it to be a motorcycle—which it demonstrably is not.
