Bombardier Recreational Products Spokesperson Tim McKrecher welcomed the press on the opening day of the BRP Ultimate Playground demo tours held on in Metro Beach Metropark on Lake St. Clair in southeastern Michigan. He went through a bit of the history of the company (including the invention of snowmobiles shortly after World War II) and on to what products we were to see before us today in 2011. One interesting tidbit that I received from the speech was that the Can-Am Spyder Roadster was already exceeding the manufacturer’s expectation so early in its development. McKrecher said “Spyder just overtook the number five spot in all motorcycle sales in all of North America… They’re behind Harley and Japan’s Big Three, but they’ve overtaken every European brand in the motorcycle industry with only two models right now.”
In the following video, Can-Am Media Relations Representative Matt Bondek gives us the run down of the two Spyder Roadster models (RS and RT), highlighting their features and technology.
