2013 Can-Am Spyder RT-S SE-5 Circuit Yellow Metallic - First Impressions

December 11, 2012

When it comes time to travel down the open road you could pile into your car loaded with all the necessities for the weekend. But a far more alluring way is to climb aboard the all-new 2013 Can-Am Spyder in Circuit Yellow Metallic. A machine with that “wind in your face” feel and the comfort of a luxury car.

The first thing you notice when the sun hits this beauty is the alluring yellow color popping out to meet your eyes.  The new for this year 15” rims and low profile tires in black accent the look even more. Move on to the fenders and the added light strips with brightly lit lights enhance the new curves. Those improvements although subtle, when combined with the classic look of the RT series, make for an elegant looking ride.

Moving on to the way the new Spyder feels is just as exciting. The addition of driver floorboards this year makes for a very comfortable ride. They are not just there for mere looks however. The new floorboards have some very practical functions as well. They feature a “floating” design that helps to absorb the vibrations of the road and reduce fatigue. They also feature a “break away” feature where in an aggressive braking situation the floorboards drop down away from the brake allowing you to keep pressure on the brake pedal. They simply snap back into place after. As always the Spyder features a very comfortable and supportive seat for both driver and passenger, making those longer trips something to look forward to.

New this year is a redesigned chassis that delivers even more comfort and performance for the touring enthusiasts. It features a revamped front-end geometry and new suspension that delivers confidence and comfort. Our dedicated Spyder Technician Justin Hintz has said that the new suspension is very similar to the 2012 and prior year models with the upgraded Elka Shocks. The cornering and handling of the new suspension is superb.

 

Also new this year is a full Brembo braking system with larger calipers and brake discs. Combine this with a next generation Bosch abs system and you get a Spyder RT with a 10% improvement in braking distance.

 

Combine all the new features and improvements with the already ahead of the game features such as electronically adjustable air rear suspension, semi auto transmission, cruise control am-fm radio with I-pod integration. Add to that cavernous storage space, and an electric adjustable windshield not to mention separate audio controls and heated grips for the driver and passenger and see if you can come up with a good reason not to ride. I know I can’t.
