As a means to attract a younger audience that is perhaps less inclined to go for two wheels, Canadian manufacturer Can-Am offers the Ryker—a budget-friendly three-wheeler with sporty attitude. Ryker models can be equipped with either the 600cc or 900cc inline-two or -three engines to suit the rider’s budgets and power requirements and an automatic transmission further expands on its approachability.

2020 Can-Am Ryker Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

When attending the press launch of the 2019 Ryker, Andrew Cherney concluded, “This bike could very well be the bridge between motorcycles and the next generation of riders who are initially intimidated by two wheels. The price point is more than reasonable and the thing is just rip-roaring fun to ride.”

Young rider Evan Allen took a spin on the Rally edition in 2019 and resolved: “For the naysayers out there: Fun can be had on the Can-Am Ryker Rally. It’s just of a different kind.”

Competition is fairly limited when it comes to beginner-specific three-wheelers. The Can-Am Ryker is in somewhat of a class on its own, but there is the scooter-like option like the Piaggio MP3 Sport 500 or car-like Polaris Slingshot.

Can-Am Ryker Updates For 2020

No major updates were highlighted for 2020. The Can-Am Ryker is also available in the Rally Edition which features the 900cc engine with Rally ride mode, upgraded suspension, hand guards, and rally rims, tires, and seat. Protective accessories such as grille protection and skid plate are also included.
