In 2007, Can-Am — a division of Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) — launched the Spyder, a three-wheeled “roadster” with a 998cc fuel-injected 106-hp Rotax V-twin engine sending power to the single rear wheel in a “reverse trike” layout — likened to a snowmobile for the street. By 2015, more than 100,000 Spyders had been delivered to happy customers, more than one quarter of them previous motorcycle owners and one fifth of them women.

“Designed for stability, it bridges the gap between a motorcycle and a sports car, and in a few states doesn’t require anything other than a car driver’s license to operate.” —Cycle World

In most states, a motorcycle license is required to operate the Spyder, and many owners opt to insure their Can-Am’s through the same companies known for insuring motorcycles. Some owners have reported certain companies adding surcharges to three-wheeled machines. Given the uniqueness of the Spyder and Ryker, it’s no surprise that rates vary widely from company to company, so it’s important to shop around and make sure you don’t pay too much. Fortunately, we can help.

Can-Am Spyder Insurance Rates

Insuring Your Spyder: Basic vs Full Coverage?

Spyder Insurance

If you’re financing your Spyder and the bank or lender still has a lien on your machine, then you’ll almost certainly need to carry “Full Coverage” in order to satisfy the lender’s requirements. That means carrying not just the state-mandated liability coverage, but also comprehensive, collision, and possibly an uninsured/underinsured motorist rider.

If you own your Spyder outright, you’ll have the option of “Basic Coverage,” which typically means little more than your state’s liability coverage. While may be the least expensive option, we don’t recommend it. Without collision or comprehensive coverage, your Spyder will not be protected from damaged sustained in a traffic accident, non-moving accident, theft, vandalism, acts of God, or many other threats.

While a Spyder is arguably safer to ride than a traditional motorcycle, it’s still less visible to other motorists, and the rider has much less protection than inside a car. For that reason, we encourage you to get the best coverage you can afford.
