USF-HICOM Launches The BRP CAN-AM SPYDER
USF-HICOM has just launched a new biking experience for Malaysians. The BRP CAN-AM Spyder Roadster. To make the Spyder more attractively priced for Malaysians, USF-HICOM has locally assembled the Spyder to ensure its pricing is easy for Malaysians to enjoy this new biking experience.
2 models are on sale. The Spyder RT Limited roadster, an ultra-luxurious touring model with an integrated GPS, semi-rigid travel bags, travel cover and striking Pearl White coloration. BRP designers also made the top-of-the-line Spyder RS-S sport roadster even more aggressive with two new two-tone colour schemes and an array of blacked-out components. In addition to new packages and colorations, BRP engineers refined the entire line-up to make the Spyder roadster experience easier, more comfortable and more fun.
On the global market the Can-Am Spyder roadster is a sales phenomenon, distributed through authorized BRP dealers in over 59 countries. With its unique Y-architecture – two wheels in front, one in back – the Can-Am Spyder roadster is a totally unique way to experience the freedom of open air riding. The stability of the three-wheel design and an automotive-derived BOSCH-engineered vehicle stability system (VSS) that integrates ABS, traction control and stability control that enables the driver to have an exhilarating open-air experience with unmatched peace-of-mind – be they novice or sportbike veteran.
Catering to the long-distance rider wanting to sacrifice nothing for comfort and style is the new Can-Am Spyder package. Pricing starts from RM103,800.00 for the RS and RM134,800.00 to RM159,290.00 for the top specification RT model.
