2012 Spyder RT Limited Specifications

2012 Can-Am Spyder RT Limited Brown Color

2012 Spyder RT Limited is the full-blown touring version of Can-Am’s with unique three wheels. It has been upgraded with a handlebar-mounted Garmin Zumo 660 color touch screen GPS, two exclusive covers, four semi-rigid travel bags, a travel cover, chrome accents and an embroidered seat.

Compounding the confusion surrounding the use of an extra wheel was the introduction of the Can-Am Spyder, which eschewed tradition by placing its dual wheels at the front of the machine.

Stealing the show is the RT Limited, with a grandiose list of features that scream that it’s a premium machine. For hardcore travelers, there’s a Bluetooth-ready Garmin Zumo GPS integrated into the RT’s electronics system and a custom-fitted travel bag inside each of the four storage compartments.
