Can-Am Spyder 2010 Technology - How it works

The Spyder's 2-front - 1-rear wheel configuration poses interesting, and I suspect, unexpected challenges for BRP engineers when it came to make it safe and exciting to ride. Other factors such as weight distribution, mass centralisation and the location of the center of gravity, both fore-and-aft, and height), and the need for a low look at the rear must have complicated their lives.

2008 Can-Am Outlander 650 H.O. EFI XT Review

Bombardier is a jewel of the Quebec industry. However, in 2004, the ATV division took the name of Can-Am and the logo of BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products). The English appellation should come as no surprise since 70 percent of the current production is sold in the U.S. Still proud of their reputation, the folks at Can-Am recently gave us the opportunity to test-ride the popular Outlander series, more precisely the 2008 650 H.O. EFI XT. [more]

Is it a motorcycle, an ATV or a snowmobile on wheels? Never before has a new vehicle aroused so much curiosity since its debut. The Spyder is first and foremost a unique approach to mobility. From the front, you could swear it has eyes, a nose and a mouth. From the side, it is all elegance and style. Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit that the designers did their work very well: this machine turns heads like no other. [more]

2008 Can-Am Outlander MAX 650 H.O. EFI XT Review (video)

The ATV market is evolving at a pretty fast pace. Before manufacturers started a war on the displacement front, 500-cc machines were the kings of the industry. But now, it's not unusual to see a 650-, 750-, 800- or even 1,000-cc ATV in regulated trail networks across the country. BRP is largely responsible, having launched both 650-cc and 800-cc variants of its twin-cylinder models. [more]

And not the least: Can-Am engineers created the lightest, most nimble and best performing ATV in the entire history of the company.

Every part is assembled using a rigorous, highly advanced process: rather than being welded, they are fit into place by aluminum-cast riveted bolts. [more]
