BRP Sells Its 100,000th Can-Am Spyder

It might be hard to believe, but Can-Am has sold over 100,000 Spyder three-wheelers since the reverse trike first debuted in dealerships in 2008. Some off-the-cuff math here puts Can-Am Spyder sales as averaging 12,500 units a year — an impressive figure for the unique vehicle.

The 100,000th Can-Am Spyder was given to its new owner, a Missouri firefighter by the name of Brahm Wilson, at the Spyderfest 2015 gathering in Springfield, Missouri. Wilson is your typical Can-Am purchasers, an ex-motorcyclist returning to the sport/lifestyle after a hiatus, who wanted something a little different than the standard two-wheeled fare.

His bike is a 2015 Can-Am Spyder F3, which goes after America’s popular cruiser heritage, and mixes a bit of Harley-Davidson with on-road snowmobile to distinguish itself from the other Spyder models.







“I’m an ex-motorcyclist, returning to riding after a few years away and I have been admiring the Can-Am Spyder for a while now,” said Wilson.

“With the introduction of the Spyder F3, I decided that was the bike for me, and it ended up being the 100,000th to come off the assembly line. I couldn’t ask for anything more than to share this amazing experience with the Spyder community at Spyderfest!”

Sold in 55 countries, the Can-Am Spyder F3 is the newest model from the Canadian brand, debuting this year, and it is rounded out by the touring-focused RT models and sport-focused ST models.







Like the Polaris Slingshot, the Spyder is a reverse trike, but instead of sitting in it like a car, riders sit on top of the machine, more like a motorcycle. The form factor has been best described as a snowmobile meant for the highway.
