    Default BRP Facebook Event

    Looks like the BRP Facebook Live event won't start until 11 PM Eastern time. A little late for me. Guess I'll read Spyderlovers Tuesday morning to find out what was unveiled.

    Oh, you mean this? https://www.facebook.com/brpinfo/

    Posting a link would help.

    BRP is streaming the unveiling of their 2020 models live on Facebook. I was going to watch but it is broadcasting a little late for me. So, I'll just read about the new Spyder models tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.

    Why would they do it at 11:00PM eastern time? That's a bit late for anyone, especially those on the west coast.

    I heard this weekend....the rumor among dealers is the F3 and RT are going to be combined into 1 machine. Combined meaning they will share one chassis, drive train, etc, etc.

    Makes sense to me. That's what GM did with most of their models on the same chassis. The only difference between some engines was the color of the paint. Remember when Olds got into trouble over that when someone got a Chevy colored engine in one?

    I am truly hoping they announce something that makes me contact a salesman tomorrow.....highly doubt it but one never knows. Colors and trim is not going to make that happen. BRP needs a performance Spyder......

    It has run its course. They showed 2 side by sides, Two RT's, three SeaDoos, and a couple concept electric bikes. One a two wheeler and one an exotic looking Spyder. No F3's or Rykers.

    Finally - LED headlights standard. After how many years?
    Ours is a red, black and chrome 2017 F3 Limited. Bought new in 2/2019. The avatar is my first bike back in 1952, a Simplex Servi-Cycle. Photo taken at the Barber Museum.

    New LED lights but nothing IMHO earth-shaking. A little more room for driver and passenger. No shaft drive or engine HP increase...... Jim

    There will be another event tonight that is just for the Spyder and Ryker. It should have more details than what they showed last night.

    No LED lights for the F3 - disappointing. Also no other changes for the F3-S. With that I ride my F3-S another year, maybe 2021 will finally have the big throw (engine HP, shaft drive, tilt technology) for the F3-S.

    BRP Does It Again. A big build up for a disappointing reveal. I admit that there will be many who think the F3-ising of the RT/RTL is "the greatest thing since sliced bread'. Since it's still belt driven and powered by the 1330 Rotax triple, I don't see a compelling reason for me to give up my low mileage(15K) Pearl White'15 RT Limited. That goes for low mileage 14-19 models too. The color palate is too bland for me. The difference between the Chrome and Dark editions is not that much in the 2020s

    The reveal event was typical of the last few years. This was a "dealer" reveal and many comments were made that they can go look at all the stuff in the displays at the meeting.

    As usual...we got the teasers... but I found the 2 minutes of Spyder to be interesting.

    When the build it page was posted later...I went to it this AM.

    I looked, I liked, I printed a build it page, I looked at potential dealers.

    They got me with the RT in Petrol (Aqua) color...been waiting for that since about 2013. I like the "clean" look...no top box. Found two accessories...the heated comfort seat and the front auxilliary light. No need for the $2K top box in back. So far...$24K and change.

    Remaining....a dealer who is willing to give me a good deal....and I am hard when it comes to that. The looking and make an offer stage to follow.
