The true fault of this Can-Am: is the consumption. During our previous test, the twin-cylinder, widely sought, could prove very greedy. Hope that the arrival of this three-in-line cylinder will change a little the gives.


With this engine, the promises of BRP engineers are beautiful.

To help the driver consume less, an indicator of aid gear change was added to the dashboard (it shows when shifting, not to solicit the engine too).

And this is not bad! The autonomy of the Can-Am remained on the machines previously tested by us, a true black point. The mass of the three-wheeled, potentially burdened by multiple possibilities of loading (155 liters of capacity), required a high load of the motor. But the arrival of the three-cylinder adds more than 20 kg to the building to achieve a weight dry announced 459 kg. The next test may confirm the real gain in autonomy.

In addition to the heart of the machine, a few changes have been introduced. The radiators have been developed and have doubled their capacity. The aesthetics of the front face has also been reviewed.

Attention will equip the new Rotax in 2014 with the RT model. The Spyder RS ​​and ST keep the V-twin. But the three-cylinder is expected soon to arrive on these models.
