Spied: Bombardier "Spyder" motorcycle

http://www.leftlanenews.com/2007/02/...cle/#more-4748



Two spy shots have surfaced showing a new motorcycle-styled vehicle being developed by Canadian ATV and snowmobile maker Bombardier. The Bombardier vehicle, known as the Spyder, has two front wheels and one rear wheel which allows for motorcycle-like ride with improved stability. The vehicle is expected to be launched officially on February 9th. Gallery after the jump…



The vehicle features a Rotax 1000cc, 60 degree water-cooled V-twin engine, which will produce about 130 horsepower. The gearbox appears to use a traditional foot-operated changing system, but some reports had suggested a CVT gearbox will be used.



Other features spied by the photographers include electronic stability control and ABS braking systems. The motorcycle is designed to be street legal. Further, the 'trike' might only require a regular 'car' license in some countries such as the United States.



The vehicle is targeted to ship this summer in the States, with a European launch by next summer. More details are expected to follow soon.
