The 2009 Can-Am™ Spyder™ roadster is BRP's first "on-road" vehicle. This three-wheel vehicle, with two wheels in the front and one in the rear, offers a completely new and stunning look.
Powered by a proven 990 V-Twin engine designed and manufactured by BRP-Rotax, the Spyder roadster, with its unique Yarchitecture, can be described as part motorcycle and part convertible sports car.
"Our Can-Am Spyder roadster is the next dimension in open-road riding. A true paradigm shift, the Spyder roadster offers a balance of performance and peace of mind with features like the Vehicle Stability System (VSS), engineered in conjunction with Bosch, which includes anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control systems," said José Boisjoli, president and CEO, BRP.
BRP's reputation was built on its ability to innovate and design products for powersports enthusiasts. After more than five years of research, the Can-Am Spyder roadster is now delivering on the company's promise to offer a complete line of recreational motorized products in four segments: On snow, on water, as well as both off and on road.
While confirming that the Can-Am Spyder roadsters would be assembled in Valcourt, Boisjoli added: "This is a historic event for BRP, particularly for our Valcourt and Austrian employees, as it confirms the strategic role of BRP's Québec manufacturing facilities for assembling complex and sophisticated vehicles, and BRP-Rotax's leadership in engine development. With Can-Am Spyder, we are redefining the roadster category by bringing the powersports experience to the road through this new generation of vehicles. BRP is entering a new era that will provide growth opportunities for our company worldwide and potentially create new jobs,'' he concluded.
Manufacturing started in the fall of 2007 with a progressive ramp-up of the production over the next three years to meet market demand.
