The Y-Factor

Wow! The first time I saw this up and coming vehicle from Bombardier, I thought it was a spoof sent to me by a good friend. Lo and behold, it’s for real and the full site launch for more information occurs on February 9th!

Imagine a Snowmobile/motorcycle hybrid and you’ll be closer to envisioning the new Can-Am Spyder. Some descriptive text of this up and coming machine is as follows:

Nothing you?ve experienced prepares you for the thrill of hitting the open road on a Spyder?. Its head-turning, revolutionary 3-wheeled stance alters the chemistry between vehicle and asphalt. Transforming on-road sensations through an optimal balance of performance and stability. And leaving riders forever changed by what can only be described as the Y-Factor.

I am completely intrigued by this vehicle. I’d love to drive one because it looks as if it has enough weighty sveldt to be a real road-hugger. Driving three wheeled vehicles in my experience is always a challenge because they are more commonly configured with one wheel up front and two in back. With this reverse-posture, the Spyder is bound to be amazingly stable at very high speeds!

Wow . . . check it out and let me know what you think, OK?
