Can-Am Road Tests & Reviews

Can-Am Motorcycle Guide

The Can-Am motorcycle brand began in the 1970s, creating off-road dirt bikes and taking home the top three places in the International Six Days Enduro. Can-Am motorbikes also swept the 1974 AMA 250cc National Motocross Championship. Despite its success in racing, Can-Am's primary holding company, Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), shifted focus away from the motorcycle market. In 2006, BRP reintroduced the Can-Am brand with an all-new ATV line. Then, in 2007, the Can-Am brand was also used to introduce the Can-Am Spyder, a new three-wheeled roadster.
