Space truckin'

Resembling the result of an unholy union between a snowmobile, a Honda Gold Wing and a Nissan 370Z, Can-Am's top-of-the-line Spyder RT Limited delivers the open-air freedom of motorcycle travel with an unprecedented level of luxury. Powered by a 100-bhp Rotax V-twin tied to the SE-5 semi-automatic, trigger-shift transmission (with reverse), the pearl-white RT Limited is piled with standard comfort features like a premium touring saddle with driver lumbar support, cruise control, heated handgrips, full audio with iPod integration, Garmin Zumo 660 GPS and more. The Canadian firm also outfits its road hog with a full suite of road-holding technology including traction control, stability control, ABS, push-button air-adjustable suspension and yes, even dynamic power steering. It's equipped like an automobile, and at $28,099, priced like one too.

Yes, a trailer is available as an option.
