Coming to Northern California’s Silicon Valley/Bay Area for the first time is the Can-Am Spyder on April 9 and April 10, 2014 at the San Mateo County Convention Center at 1346 Saratoga Dr., San Mateo, CA 94403 (demo area outside). You’ll be able to try out this three-wheeled open air vehicle that gives you the exhilaration of riding with confidence and control thanks to its Y-frame design, state of the art 7 automobile technologies and Rotax engine. Could this be the future sports ride of Silicon Valley techies?
The Can-Am Spyder has awesome tech features:
- AM/FM Audio System with iPod Cable – Audio system and weather band that is all satellite-radio ready and rear speakers with independent audio control.
- Garmin Zumo 660 GPS – Integrated with an easy-read 4.3-in touch screen and Bluetooth wireless technology.
- Anti-theft system – Digitally encoded security system (D.E.S.S.) prohibits vehicle from starting unless the rider uses the correct coded electronic key.
- 41 gallons of storage – A perfect place for your phone, tablet and computer, keep your gear safe with lockable watertight storage.
And also… fuel efficient and green features…
In addition, updates to the cooling system not only improved aerodynamic efficiency, but driver and passenger comfort as well. All told, with these updates, the ultimate touring Spyder gets more than 225 miles on a tank before one even needs to think about looking for a gas station. In addition, a new ECO mode smart assist system can be turned on by the rider to further improve fuel economy by indicating precisely where the shift points should be for maximum fuel efficiency.
NEW ECO Mode Smart Assist
This mode is selectable by the drier to optimize shifting points and maximize engine efficiency. The dash indication shows the driver to shift between first and second gears at 1,800 RPM; from second to third at 1,950 RPM; and from third on up at 2,200 RPM. This optimized acceleration curve, when operating in ECO mode, results in improved fuel economy.
