Can-Am Spyder Hybrid

If you’re into motorcycles then you probably know what the Can-Am Spyder is all about. For those that don’t however, here’s a quick synopsis. The Spyder is a three-wheeled motorcycle that utilizes a single drive wheel out back with the other two wheels mounted traditionally up front as you would see on an automobile. The engine is a 106-hp, 998-cc Rotax V-twin which is similar to the one first used in the Aprilia RSV Mille motorcycles built from 1998-2003. The Spyder is big, comfortable and perfect for long hauls which may explain why Can-Am is developing a hybrid plug-in of the bike. The Can-Am Spyder is built by Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) and in hybrid form is said to consume half the amount of fuel as its solely gas powered sibling. Right now BRP is working in conjunction with the Canadian Government and Sherbrooke University to develop a hybrid Spyder that is powered not only by traditional fuel, but by lithium-ion batteries as well. The bike is said to have a range of up to 375 miles. For those long haulers that want true comfort and versatility this may be exactly what they’ve been looking for.
