2017 Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited
Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) has rolled out the 2017 line-up of Can-Am Spyder models, as well as announcing some good economic news for potential Spyder F3 buyers.
The 2017 models span the range of rider preferences and pursuits. The newest model for touring is the Spyder F3 Limited. The F3 Limited is designed for maximum performance in two-up touring. The Spyder F3-T is built for the weekend and day-trip tourist who wants a “bagger” style of machine. The Spyder F3-S line includes a new Daytona 500 Edition, which offers Sport mode to allow for high performance-minded riding and even to allow for controlled rear-wheel spins.
The good economic news is for riders considering the base Spyder F3; BRP has cut the price by almost 15 percent compared to the 2016 MSRP. That is particularly important to new riders as approximately one-third of Can-Am Spyder F3 owners are first-time riders, according to BRP.
Based on owner feedback suggesting increased storage capacity in the Spyder F3 product, the 2017 Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited has a removable top case with enough storage for two full-face helmets and includes an integrated passenger backrest. It is easily removable, providing the option of bagger configuration or full touring capability.
F3-T owners wanting to upgrade their machines to touring grade can mount the top case as an optional accessory. The F3 Limited includes many comfort and convenience features, including automatic self-adjusting air suspension, heated grips and footboards and a six-speaker audio system.
Within the full touring category, the top-of-the-line Spyder RT Limited is now available in different color options, including Champagne Metallic and Asphalt Gray Metallic. That model comes equipped with the Garmin Zumo 590 GPS.
“The Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited completes the Spyder F3 lineup,” said Anne Bélec, SVP Global Brand, Communications and PAC (Parts, Accessories and Clothing) at BRP. “Along with its enhanced comfort, convenience and entertainment features, it has all of the characteristics that define the Can-Am Spyder F3, including a cruising riding position, muscular design and exclusive UFit system for custom peg and handlebar positions.”
“The entire Can-Am Spyder lineup is designed for people to unleash their spirit of adventure while enjoying a balance of performance and peace of mind on the open road,” said Bélec. “The 2017 model lineup is a continuation of that focus, with multiple models that fit all lifestyles, including the new Spyder F3 Limited.”
