  • The Origin and Pulse signify Can-Am’s return to the motorcycle market.

At the time, the Canadian-based company showcased its first electric motorcycle, the Origin dual-sport and Pulse roadster. 

Unfortunately, while Can-Am revealed that both motorcycles would run on an all-new Rotax E-Power electric motor, the firm remained tight-lipped on the Origin and Pulse power, range and charging time.

Nevertheless, BRP quickly got things running as the company recently broke ground for a new EV-manufacturing plant in Queretaro, Mexico.

According to the firm, the new facility will primarily produce Can-Am’s electric two-wheeler range, including the Pulse and Origin. 

“We have set out to reclaim our motorcycle heritage by launching a lineup of electric two-wheel motorcycles, and we are gearing up to execute our plan.

“We look forward to producing the first electric Can-Am motorcycles for a new generation of enthusiasts,” said BRP Powersports Group President Sandy Scullion. 

Meanwhile, Can-Am aims to deliver the first batch of electric motorcycles to customers by 2024.

The company went down in 1987 before being revived by Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) in 2006 which led to the brand manufacturing three-wheeled motorcycles and trikes.

However, as the world has shifted towards electrification, BRP announced its plan to revived Can-Am as a two-wheel electric maker, in March 2022.

At the time, the company teased four motorcycles, and six months on Can-Am has revealed the Origin and Pulse.

Based on the image shared, the Origin is a dual-sport electric motorcycle while the Pulse carries a roadster DNA with sportier bodywork.

Apart from the eye-catching design, the battery packs is also slimmer and blends perfectly underneath the “fuel tank” compared to other electric motorcycle available in the market.

That said, the Can-Am Origin presents the most unique design language, with its ADV styling puts it within the same segment as Zero’s FX. While the Pulse, offers a more urban-focused design and ergo’s puts it head-to-head with newly launched LiveWire Del-Mar.

“Today, our story of innovation reaches new heights with the reveal of market-shaping electric products that will enhance consumer experience on the road.

“Half a century ago, Can-Am roared to victory on the track and the trail, and today, a new legacy begins. With the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse, the first two models of our electric 2-wheel family, we are gearing up to reclaim our motorcycle heritage by crafting thrilling riding experiences for a whole new generation,” said José Boisjoli, President and CEO of BRP.

Wait a minute… This isn’t a motorcycle. It isn’t a car either. It’s a trike but two wheels are in front. So, that makes the Can-Am Spyder a reverse-trike, which means it’s a motorcycle.

Since Can-Am is a subsidiary of Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), it fashioned like a snowmobile for the road: Tyres in place of a caterpillar tread behind and skis in front. There’s a large trunk space up front.

The bike… err… trike is built around an ATV-like chassis, called Surrounding Spar Technology (SST). But just a car, the front suspension features double A-arms with anti-roll bar. There’s Dynamic Power Steering, too.

There are four models, called the F3-S, F3-T, RT-S and RT Limited, powered by either a Rotax 998cc, liquid-cooled, V-Twin or a Rotax 1330cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, inline-Triple. Both engines utilize electronic throttle. Other electronics include ABS, traction control and stability control.

Can-Am Spyder range updated for 2017

Besides that, the Spyder’s brakes are linked front and rear. There are also four types of transmission, 5-speed manual with reverse, 5-speed semi-automatic which uses paddle to shift, 6-speed manual with reverse, and a 6-speed semi-automatic with shift paddles.

First launched in 2007, the Spyder’s variants had sold more 100,000 units worldwide. They’ve found a large audience here in Malaysia too.

Can-Am Spyder range refreshed for 2017 with new Spyder F3-S Daytona 500 Edition introduced.

Most don’t understand that the purpose of a Can-Am is not practicality or to satisfy transportation needs, and most are quick to dismiss it as a complete sham of a bike. (more…)
