Just when you thought you had trikes all figured out, BRP throws in this dyslexic monkey wrench called the Can-Am Spyder Roadster. Bombardier Recreational Products, or BRP for short, used their expertise in building everything from jet skis and ATVs to snowmobiles and Rotax engines in designing this unconventional motorcycle concept that features two wheels in the front and one in the rear. Aside from turning heads and confusing pedestrians, the two pronged proposition also happens to up the handling ante thanks to the double a-arm suspension up front. Oh and the Cam-Am’s utterly stable front end alleviates most gravitational concerns about breaking your bike and or your body. So it’s safe to say that the Can-Am offers motorcycle-like access to the open road in a slightly safer, easier to operate package. BRP is definitely not the first to dabble with this backward design but seems to stay closer to the motorcycle concept than others while not charging an arm and a leg in the process.
