2015 Can-Am Spyder ST Limited – Features and Benefits
POWER AND CONTROL
The Rotax 998cc V-twin engine delivers crisp acceleration while 7 automotive technologies like anti-lock braking, traction control, and a semi-automatic transmission put you in control, making your ride as confident as it is exhilarating.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
With 998cc, the powerful Rotax V-Twin engine delivers crisp acceleration and plenty of torque. Its electronic throttle delivers instant response and optimum fuel economy.
RESPONSIVE AND EASY
Choose between the semi-automatic (SE5) or manual (SM5) 5-speed transmission, both with reverse. The semi-automatic transmission uses paddle shifting for fast, smooth shifts without a clutch lever or foot shifter. The manual transmission’s fluid motion stems from the 5-speed gearbox created specifically for Can-Am Spyder.
DESIGNED FOR OPTIMAL CONTROL
Developed in partnership with BOSCH and inspired by automotive technologies, the Vehicle Stability System integrates anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control for an incredibly confident ride.
EASY TO MANEUVRE
The electronically controlled power steering system provides a varying amount of assistance, depending on the speed of the vehicle. So it’s always easy to manoeuvre and steer., no matter what size or type of rider you are.
POSITIONED FOR BETTER HANDLING
The bike’s unique suspension geometry redirects forces to reduce load on suspension components, minimize body roll during cornering, and maximize tire-to-ground contact. The end result? Tighter turns, more precise handling and a more comfortable ride.
Specifically designed for Can-Am Spyder by the world leader in braking technology, the system ensures excellent stopping power and consistent performance.
