Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Spyder RS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The RS is the original Spyder, and it still uses the 998 cc Rotax V-twin that once powered some Aprilia sport bikes. There are two five-speed transmission choices: manual or clutch-less semi-automatic. It's the entry-level Spyder, and at just under $15,000 (down $2,000 from 2015), it has proven a very popular leisure vehicle, especially in Quebec, where licencing requirements were relaxed a few years ago. The five-speed semi-automatic transmission is available as an option for an additional cost.
