Experience every thrill of the Spyder Y-Factor, plus a new shift in open road freedom.

Spyder is built around a Surrounding Spar Technology (SST™) frame, featuring a minimalist steel center beam, surrounding the engine. It minimizes weld points for greater structural integrity. This light and slim frame provides a low center of gravity to enhance stability and handling..

Fluid motion stems from the smooth 5-speed gearbox created specifically for the Spyder. It features a true mechanical reverse. The final beltdrive provides ultra-smooth gearing and easy maintenance.

Providing life under the hood is a Rotax® 990cc, V-twin liquid cooled engine. It delivers a strong push and responsive acceleration throughout the power band. Advanced features include double overhead cams and a state-of-the-art electronic fuel management system.

Spyder senses its surroundings utilizing multiple on-board Electronic Control Units (ECUs). These sophisticated systems monitor a broad range of functions, from wheel slippage to digitally encoded security information.
