The Can-Am Ryker is the smaller sibling of the deservedly popular Can-Am Spyder. This reverse trike is available with either a 600cc (50 HP) or 900cc (82 HP) Rotax 4-stroke engine paired with a fully-automatic CVT transmission.
If you want to find out more about this unique three-wheeled motorcycle, you’ve come to the right place.
We at PowerSportsGuide have compiled all you need to know into this detailed Can-Am Ryker review!
Can-Am Ryker Review
BRP is one of the major players in the powersport industry, producing many great snowmobiles, off-road vehicles, and Sea-Doos.
The manufacturer entered the on-road market in 2007 with the introduction of the 3-wheeled Can-Am Spyder. Over the years this family has seen many upgrades and been expanded with some new models.
The all-new Can-Am Ryker series came out in 2018, featuring snowmobile engines and transmissions. Compared to the Spyders these new trikes are smaller, lighter, and much more affordable.
They offer different upright forward seating position, and lower seat heights.
The latest Ryker lineup includes four models, the base Ryker 600/900, the Sport, and the Rally.
Can-Am Ryker Engines
Can-Am Rykers are available with two engines, the Rotax 600 ACE and the Rotax 900 ACE. The base Ryker can be ordered with either engine option, while the more advanced models are exclusively marketed with the 900 ACE.
Both of these power mills are 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, in-line engines, featuring dry sump lubrication, multipoint fuel injection, and 4 valves per cylinder. They also share the same bore x stroke (2.91 x 2.74 inches) cylinder architecture.
The main difference between these engines is that the Rotax 600 ACE only has 2 cylinders and is rated at 50 HP (37.3 kW) at 6750 rpm and a peak torque of 36.7 ft-lb.
In contrast, the 3-cylinder Rotax 900 ACE puts out 82 HP (61.1 kW) at 7750 rpm and 58.3 ft-lb of torque.
It was originally designed as a snowmobile engine but is now used in many BPR powersport vehicles including Sea-Doos, Can-Am off-road vehicles, and the Ryker series.
Like the 900 ACE engine, the 600 ACE is also paired with a CVT transmission, which was also inherited from the Ski-Doo lineup. The engagement RPM of this drive system is 1800.
Engine power is transmitted to the single rear wheel via a belt drive.
For a better comparison, we’ve compiled the specs of the two Ryker engines into one chart:

Can-Am Ryker Chassis
Like the bigger and more expensive Spyder, the Ryker is built on a motorcycle-like frame featuring one wheel on the rear and two on the front.
But unlike tilting reverse trikes like the Yamaha Niken or the Piaggio MP3, the Ryker can’t lean into the corners. Instead, it turns like a car or an ATV.
Thanks to this unique design, the Ryker offers outstanding stability and comfort. Its easy handling can be a game changer for beginners, seniors, and riders with joint problems.
Each Ryker shares the same platform and measures 92.6 inches in length, 59.4 inches in width, and 41.8 inches in height. The seat height is 23.6 inches on the base model and 24.2 inches on Sport and Rally models.
The chassis feature HPG shocks paired with double suspension arms on the front and a single swinging arm on the rear. The wide rims are wrapped by Kenda tires, specifically engineered for motorcycles.
To the greatest regret of many fans, unlike the Spyder series, Rykers come without power steering. Therefore, operating this trike requires more muscle work, especially during slow-speed maneuvers.
On the other hand, each Ryker features a unique vehicle stability control, which keeps it planted in tight turns.
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and talk about the different Ryker models in detail!
Can-Am Model List

What are the differences between Can-Am Ryker models?
In a nutshell, the Ryker is the base model available with both the 600 and 900cc engine options. As the name suggests, the Ryker Sport comes with a wide range of sport-intended features and a more powerful 900cc engine. The Rally has special tires and longer suspension travel, which does a good job when riding on gravel and dirt roads.
