BRP unveils 2016 Can-Am Spyder Special Series at Sturgis rally

(August 1, 2015) STURGIS, S.D. —  BRP used the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to show off its 2016 Can-Am Spyder F3-S Special Series in Triple Black. It's the first model to be unveiled from the 2016 Can-Am Spyder model year line-up, and it features the muscular design and cruising-riding position of the Can-Am Spyder F3, coupled with exclusive Triple Black coloration and graphics, 6-spoke black chrome front wheels and tinted low windshield.

Launched in 2015, the three-wheel Can-Am Spyder F3 — recipient of the Red Dot Award for Product Design in 2015 — features a low center of gravity and performance-calibrated Vehicle Stability System that provides dynamic handling and great cornering, while ensuring unprecedented control.

The Rotax 1330 ACE engine offers the power, torque, and signature exhaust note to make every journey exhilarating.

The 2016 Can-Am Spyder F3-S Special Series in Triple Black will feature the Can-Am Spyder performance-driven SE-6 transmission, and will be available in limited quantities starting in January. Pricing will be available in September.

"We have a great deal of current Spyder owners here to help us celebrate, and it is a perfect opportunity to show off this eye-catching new model to such a huge crowd of motorcyclists."
