The new bigger and wider 2010 three wheeled Can-Am Spyder RT-S touring motorcycle is an interesting package. With prices ranging from $20,999 to $24,999, the Spyder RT-S includes a vast number of creature comforts as well as seating for two that is pleasurable for all day riding. However, with a tested fuel economy range only around 26.1 mpg, and a 172 mile range for the fuel, refills will be needed a little more often than one would want for long trips. But with a 960 weight, plus two riders and 998cc engine, such lackluster fuel economy might just be about as expected. But for a touring motorcycle a little more range might be good.
And there is some issues with the handling as well, where some reviews expected it to be better as well.
But where the new Can-Am Spyder RT-S does well is in the area of lots of features, rider comfort, a cool design, and a matching trailer that gives the bike more cargo room than some Jeep models.
All in all, the high price of admission seems worth it for such a fun toy as this. And from the front, the trike has a cool ATV-like look crossed with a sport bike appearance. It's not like every bike on the road by far.
The bottom Line: +++(three stars out of four, or a very good fun toy by all means).
