New to Can-Am

Hello, I just finished my Can-Am class last weekend and am ready to purchase a Spyder RT. I would love to know opinions on which year bike to get? Any year to avoid? Would like to stay below the $20k price tag. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I Roni

I strongly suggest you a 2014 and more and especially with the 1330 cc the three cylinder. I have a RT limited 2014 and all is well.

Why are y'all recommending 2014 and up? Is that when they went to the larger engine? I understand wanting a larger engine, but is there anything particularly BAD about the 990?

Depends on your definition of "bad".
In general, no.

But worse gas mileage, more frequent oil changes......and some other design "quirks" not related to the engine.
Like hot air hitting the rider on some models.

And of course, the older it IS the more likely things are to go bad, just based on mileage and age.
