    Here is hoping the information will be of a "sharing" capability and not to "confidential" to share. I too was looking for specs, but did not find anything on the BRP page. There was a build your own section, but you had to sign up to get in there. I stopped at the first hurdle. I am guessing that a lot of people are wondering just that. I bought the 08, 09, 10 all sight unseen. But not inclined that way on the 2018's.

    What do you think of it?
    You first posted this, I read it, and thought, ya know Bob is right, and for that matter BRP, this is something special, and for some this is right and for others not, actually hope for many others, not right to own but wish they could, Hence anniversary exclusivity.

    Then I read everyones posts here and i started to build my RT using 2017 choices,
    Back in 2009 I sold my most valued vehicle possession to free up cash to buy the Premier
    Edition of the 2010 RTS #442 (wife thought I was nuts)

    After 7 years of owning and riding this machine, with all the newbie headaches and untried
    concerns that plagued us all, THIS MACHINE,this SPYDER was something very special. Got
    me out and about like you wouldn't believe, With all the quirks I experienced I still managed
    to log 15K miles a year, The last couple of years my interest drove to new additions with cars
    and my riding reduced to just a couple thousand miles per year.

    My decision to obtain a spyder was in the top 20 things I ever
    did in my life. My RT today is running flawlessly, Have everything working on her soundly,
    have all the selective farkles that I care about, custom Corbin seat and passenger rest
    designed for the long haul and diamonfR floorboards that match and enhance the custom
    stealth paint configuration (timeless black) with XM, CB and 3rd brake light going for her.

    With 60K miles on the odometer, these bullet proof engines this has only reached a quarter
    of her potential 250K. Why, you may ask am I considering changing out...........because
    there are new adventures for me to experience, and after seeing first hand all that goes
    into this beautiful machine that we ryde...... Now there is a need to begin building and
    studying all the unknown choices that are available for the creation of the ultimate machine.

    Thanks Bob

    RE: Premier Editions: 2010 RT. I had #474 and liked it a lot. I put 36,500 on it before trading for the 2014 1330. The 2010 RT was a good machine--IMO.

    Here's the reply that I got from the Good Folks at BRPCare:

    Hi Robert,

    Here are some answers to your questions.


    The engine, transmission, drive-line and attachment procedure for mirrors all remain unchanged. In addition, your luggage set will fit into the new bike


    As for any significant changes in the body work, there will be a special & unique colorization (jet back metallic & liquid gold satin), a special seat with embossed 10th logo & stitches, a 3D 10th logo on the tank cover, a gold trim gauge for RT-L & F3-L models only, a 3D BRP logo (front & rear), satin gold Can-Am logos, a new « Y » Design wheel with each branch representing a year, a rack on the F3-L and mono seats & pod covers for the F3-S.


    As for additional gold accessories, we cannot tell for now.



    Hope this helps you in your purchase decision


    Sandra - BRPcare

    They answered all of my questions completely, and I'm very thankful that they took the time to do so.
    I'll go see my Dealer on Thursday, and "Talk Turkey"!

    I guess that means other than a possible color there will be no redesign for the RT model. RT needs more forward leg room and bags and trunk that are removable like the F3. More passenger room would be nice. The trunk on the RT is to deep. Need to be wide and long Like F3.

    Sounds like what your looking for is an F3...

    Actually, I posted Sandra's response in here only because it really let nothing out that I hadn't already seen... So there were no secrets to reveal...

    Sorta but has to have more passenger room. My wife was sitting half way on the hump of the seat and so do I and we are not that big. Needs a longer seat and trunk back 2 inches. Would need a power windshield to. SO BRP Updated the F3 with that stuff or give the RT More driver leg room.

    Reading the answers they gave you, all they described are the extras to the 10th anniversary Spyders.

    Nothing was said (as I expected) about any forthcoming changes to the 2018 models.

    So. we still do not know, should we buy a 10th anniversary machine or wait for a 2018 in the fall.

    I recommend waiting until 2019. Sounds like no changes for this coming year. I know the paint color is nice, but it wouldn't convince me to upgrade. Maybe if I didn't have a spyder or had an older one. But there has to be changes coming, just not for 2018?

    in a way upgrading to a newer year, is like i do with the same make cars. they don't really change except for color and a little gadget here and there. it is just nice owning a newer one. lets face it, there is not much BRP can do to a RT if that is what you are looking at. other then extras that they already have as extras, and colors, they will be the same.
