2012 Can-Am Spyder RS-S | Quick Look

2012 Can-Am Three-Wheeler

Powered by a Rotax engine closely related to the powerplant in the Aprilia Tuono 1000, the RS-S is the sporty version of the revolutionary Can-Am three-wheeler.

Can-Am’s Vehicle Stability System virtually eliminates the possibilities of tip-overs, while the front wheels prevent pushing in corners.

The S version of the RS gives the machine a more aggressive look, thanks to exclusive wheels, handlebars, footpegs and spoilers.There are also a large number of factory sport and touring accessories that allow customization to each rider’s needs.
