Can-Am Rolls Out New Smartphone Connect Display for 2018 Spyders

BRP recently introduced a new, fully-digital instrument panel on a majority of its 2018 Can-Am Spyder vehicles. Always having the consumer in mind, the ingenious display is the first in the motorcycle industry to provide access to third-party smartphone apps, thanks to seamless connectivity via BRP Connect. It also has Bluetooth technology allowing riders to play content from their Bluetooth-enabled devices directly to their Can-Am Spyder.

Riders can access their navigation application, play content, and listen to music directly on their Can-Am Spyder vehicle to maximize the open road riding experience. The gauge is available on all 2018 Can-Am Spyder RT models, as well as the 2018 Can-Am Spyder F3-T and F3 Limited.

“Connectivity is critical to the future of riding, which is why we are laser focused on enhancing Can-Am Spyder user experience through technology,” said Josee Perreault, Senior Vice President, Can-Am Spyder. “The advanced innovation behind the gauge design brings the information world directly to riders, giving them what they need, when they need it.”

The system is extremely intuitive, simple to operate and significantly enhances the rider experience. A new joystick control is mounted near the left handgrip, ensuring riders can keep their hands on the handlebars and remain focused on the road ahead. Large, dual 4.3” screens provide optimal viewing from all angles, and information such as fuel level and speed are always visible. The opposite side of the screen can display compatible apps specifically adapted for riders with minimal effort required to navigate.

“More people are joining the Can-Am Spyder owners’ community each day,” said Perreault. “This new technology will bring the ownership experience to a new level, and I encourage anybody who loves adventure to go try a Spyder vehicle. It’s an ingenious design that’s stable and easy to learn with or without previous motorcycle experience, and there’s nothing like the wind in your face as you escape on the open road.”

To further enhance the riding experience in 2018, there is a new 6-speaker BRP Audio Premium system on Spyder RT models, which delivers better sound quality with more power. Additionally, owners can now personalize their Spyder F3 Limited or RT Limited models by going with either the Dark or Chrome option. They are the same models with the same great features, but distinctly different styles. Dark or Chrome options include windshield supports, front wheels, mirrors, trim, logos, frame supports and more.

In June, BRP unveiled three commemorative 10th Anniversary Can-Am Spyder models – a Spyder F3-S, F3 Limited and RT Limited. Each is Gold and Jet Black Metallic, and the F3 Limited and RT Limited will feature the new gauge with BRP Connect. All of the 10th Anniversary models must be ordered by Oct. 24, as they are limited-build and only vehicles ordered by that time will be produced.
