Can-Am is giving touring riders even more creature comforts with its updated 2020 Spyder RT line, which starts at $23,299 for the base RT and goes up to $27,299 for the RT Limited.
“The new Can-Am Spyder RT reflects what we’ve learned from owners over the past 10 years since we first unveiled the touring lineup,” said Josée Perreault, senior vice-pPresident, Can-Am On-Road at BRP, in a company release. “Spyder RT riders have explored millions of miles of open road, and we’ve reimagined the ideal road trip vehicle based on their feedback. This is the result, and it truly is an ultimate riding experience.”

The RT models get new LED headlights and a revised cockpit for improved rider and passenger comfort. Some of the new elements include extended floorboards, allowing you to shift through a broader range of leg positions, and updated heated seats for rider and passenger. The seats are also designed to provide ample lumbar support, making long -hauls more comfortable. Seating is lower than previously as well.

Riders can utilize up to 47 gallons of storage capacity on the Spyder RT Limited, and up to 31 gallons on the standard RT. The top case is big enough to fit two XL helmets side -by -side and is mounted utilizing a LinQ system that allows for quick addition/removal of cases. The LinQ system is compatible with other Spyder accessories, including coolers and sport bags, so riders can customize the luggage configuration to their preference.
