Back in September, Chad had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas for the announcement of the new 2020 Can-Am lineup, which included the Can-Am Spyder and Ryker models. This is one time where what happens in Vegas, should not stay in Vegas.
The biggest announcement of the show was the unveiling of the all-new 2020 Can-Am Spyder RT series. The new Spyder RT is completely redesigned with the rider, and passenger in mind. Primary focus was to improve long-distance comfort while making the ride more enjoyable and adding even more customization options so owners can tailor the Spyder RT to meet their needs.
Over the last 10 years, customers have been asking for certain changes on the Spyder RT, and in Chad's opinion, most of those requests have been met. Josée Perreault, senior vice president, Can-Am On-Road at BRP says “Spyder RT riders have explored millions of miles of open road, and we’ve re-imagined the ideal road-trip vehicle based on their feedback. This is the result, and it truly is an ultimate riding experience.” The changes include:
- Re-designed look
- Extended foot-boards (may be on specific models)
- Extended seat space for the driver and passenger
- Extra storage space over previous year models
- More accessory and customization options
- New dash switch and button locations
- Split seats to make fueling up easier
- New premium LED headlights
Some of the changes include a new heated seat with improved lumbar support, adjustable electric windshield, and extended floorboards all to make the ride more comfortable. They expanded the storage space to 47 gallons (177 liters) and added LinQ modular components that will allow owners to ride with the rear case or remove it and install one of the available options including a cooler, sport bag, or any other available LinQ accessories.
The Spyder RT and RT Limited are equipped with BRP Audio system with BRP Audio Premium six-speaker sound system with radio, USB, Bluetooth, and Ride Connect as well. The core of the Spyder continues to be the fuel-injected 115-hp Rotax triple with an assortment of rider-assist systems in place: Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, Power Steering, Hill Hold Control, and Digitally Encoded Security System (DESS). The RT Limited will be available in four colors: Deep Marsala Metallic (Red), Petrol Metallic Blue, Chalk White, and Asphalt Grey Metallic. The base-model 2020 Spyder RT will be offered in only Chalk White or Petrol Metallic Blue.
