    My dealer, Hicklin PowerSports called me on the 16th and told me he had a S2S in. I went in on the 17th and decided to buy it.

If not, you'd have to remove (3) pieces of tupperware then gently pull another piece of tupperware out a bit. (15) minutes worth of work but I doubt you want to risk scratching your brand new bike just to see.

    Yeah, I'm not about to start ripping the plastic off of my new toy just yet.
    I did get underneath and snapped a pic of the drive belt. It does look like something you described, that little wheel riding on top of the belt is there:

    Well I guess that question is answered. Thanks.

    Looks like the stock part. You might want to set up an inspection schedule of periodically checking the bearing. You should be able to reach under it now that you know where it is, lift the roller arm and rotate the roller. When they start to go I would replace them with the upgraded roller and bearings from Lamonster.

    I get to pick my S2S up on Saturday (02/27/2021). Can't wait. I am a little disappointed that the adjustable handlebars and LED floorboard are not standard. The video is a bit misleading in my opinion.

    That video is a bit misleading. They probably should have had separate videos for the S2S and the new (not included) accessories. I wonder how many pre-ordered an S2S thinking that all of those accessories mentioned in the video were standard on that trim level.

    Hate to say it guys but I thought the video was pretty plain if you listened to it.

    Agree Monk, BRP will probably sell some S2S with buyer's blindly thinking they will get the 'options' free, and then after the sale, those options will be a surprise add on price.

    I picked up my S2S last Saturday. It was the first one my dealer has received. I love it!

    It seems that everyone who hears about and looks at, Buys it I bought mine from youtube videos and looking and reading online My is being shipped on Feb 28th. My understanding is that this is a special edition version and will only run for a year.. Is that correct? Any body hear that before??
    Thanks and Congrats to all those new Spyder owners out! Be safe and stay healthy!

    That's the general rumor.

    I was at the local stealer yesterday for my 3k mile service on my 2021 RT base. Dealer has at least (2) S2S's. They had one on the sales floor and another that had just been assembled. I shot a video of the S2S. I'll clean it up and post it this week. I dislike the color (paint, wheel color, emblems/trim) even more in person. I meant to sit on the seat so I could get an idea what a Comfort seat feels like but totally forgot.

    It will be a limited "special edition" UNLESS it turns out to be a great seller....THEN they may carry it over....OR, they may change out the color so that people will jump to the "latest & greatest."

    I don't do that anymore. I am back to getting brand new, one year old versions. Tried, true, and easier to deal on in most cases....plus I have received BRP rebates of $1,000 and $2,000 off the deals.

    It was posted in one of the BRP rollout videos that it was in production for one year only.

    Yup. Assuming I buy another RT, it will be the 2nd year of the next generation.

    I think you need to have your dealer adjust the alignment of the tensioner, as it appears that the factory did not align it correctly.

    From what I am seeing on site, BRP has created a winner.

    There were two of them on the floor at RideNow Powersports in Concord NC yesterday when we were there. They also had a gorgeous "Glacial Blue" F3T sitting smack between them. Would like to have seen the F3 as a Limited...
