    We're waiting to see what pops up...
    There was some talk about the Can Am "Spyke".
    Help is on the way. Until then...

    The engineering and quality control of their very expensive products is so poor I can't imagine a "Yugo" version.

    RE: Yugo version--I am thinking BRP would not be willing to do something that dumb. If they do that, you can kiss the Spyder line goodbye. I remember when Yugo's first came out. The Oldsmobile dealer in Duluth picked up the line. They had them for a whole three months or so--and then they were quietly GONE.

    The new BRP version is supposed to bring a lot of younger people into the market. Currently, the whole motorcycle industry is having a problem selling even in the $10K - $15K areas. Gold Wing seems to be doing good with their re-do at $23K - $25K. HD has some serious problems with their new $40K price points. At this point in time, not only NO, but HECK no.

    I have adopted the wait and see mode. At current rates, I can get another 10 years or so out of each Spyder, if I have to.

    September - October is going to be interesting for sure.

    They did well with the Spark PWC, I don’t see why an entry level Spyder wouldn’t do well.

    Some folks wouldn't be happy; even if you beat them with a brand-new baseball bat...

    Using my decades of "investigative training and experience"..........................I have detected a note mild sarcasm in your post.

    And.........................speaking of Yugos; if BRP surprises us with an econo version of a Spyder" for the younger, and fiscally prudent set...................it would behoove owners of them who might be riding in my neck of the woods to be mindful of prevailing wind conditions.

    Lots of speculation but few facts on this. 600-900cc range, 60ish HP, 300 KG, no storage?

    I can't see how this can be anythng other than a twist and go scooter style spyder, utilising a drive train from a can-am ATV.

    My wife likes the sound of it anyway.

    The only 'Yugo' version of anything has been a Yugo, and the market pretty much rejected that.

    This is a SpyderLovers forum; why are you so down on Spyder engineering and QC?

    The sub 10K spyder is currently called Project S, to be unveiled sept this year.

    Why does it matter ? Just think - a popularly priced spyder - even if less cc - might just sell very well - lots of new riders, some who would never contemplate two wheels. If it's a real hit, just think of the expanded dealer network we shall all benefit from! Not to mention longevity of the spyder brand itself...

    Just curious really. The idea is very appealing

    I've been shopping around for another 2 wheeled toy, and love my Spyder a lot, thinking maybe I should wait and see what this Spyder maybe like, before I pull the trigger on another 2 wheeled toy.

    I see only positives with BRP's idea

    There are many ways to cut costs on a Spyder without jeopardizing quality control in my opinion.

    My expensive (to me) RSS has been a great machine so far, very happy with the quality, & engineering. Every company has few rotten apples!

    Makes sense. I've been contemplating a Honda Ridgeline as a replacement for both my other aging cars. While having my Xterra serviced I was approached by a salesman about trading it in on a Frontier pickup truck. I laughed and told him that's the last mid-sized pickup I'd ever buy. But then he told me the 2019 model is getting a complete makeover to compete with the Ridgeline. Now I'm all jazzed to learn all I can about it.

    Exactly, every since I caught wind of this Spyder it's been in the my head with the other stuff. The worst is waiting on something that is a huge let down, or it gets pushed back another year

    Well they can do it- I have had 13 BRP Jet skies from 89-2014. 255 Supercharged and Now a 2014 Spark 90 Hp That Sips Gas- I get 3 hours at 50 mph for about 6 gallons on the Spark and it will Keep up with a 255 Supercharged ski up until about 35 MPH! My 255 would use 15 Gallons in about 2 hours? There is a Big market for something Capable of 85 MPH with good acceleration and simple paddle shifting today and storage is NOT a big demand for most- I have 70,000 miles on 3 different Spyders and never left My state once.
    I will be interested to see what happens?

    I found the best way to learn about a vehicle I'm interested in is to rent one while on vacation. I rented a 2 door Jeep Wrangler, Sahara JK, and automatic with 8 miles on it. When I brought it back, it had over 6000. I've decided on the JL version. Now, back on topic. My 2008 GS, SM5 has treated me well. I'll run it until it runs no more, and then I'm done, and will stick to 4 wheels.

    I recall riding my Spyder to work early on. Lots of interest, & curiosity, particularly in the younger crowd. As soon as you get to the price point, they tend to walk away. An entry level just might be that hook

    Totally different products. Totally different buyer expectations.

    I think the more Spyders BRP gets into the market, better and more service dealers will crop up. Hope so.......
