The history of Canadian Bombardier Corporation motorcycle subsidiary Can-Am started in 1973, when U.S. engineer Gary Robinson and ex-world champion Jeff Smith began manufacturing endure and motocross bikes. Equipped with Rotax engines, the vehicles gained wide popularity among riders and brought them numerous victories at International races.
In early '70s, these motorcycles were employed by the British Army, and they are still used by the Belgian Army. The company planned to relaunch the bikes in 1983, but couldn’t pull it off due to scarce funding. The last Can-Am branded motorcycle arrived in 1987.
In 1997, the company premiered the Traxter prototype, which allowed it to enter the all-terrain vehicle segment. The model was even called the ATV of the year. The brand came into sight again in 2007 with the Spyder Roadster arrived. Until now, Can-Am manufactured ATVs, karts and snowmobiles, but this bike-convertible car hybrid featuring a V-Twin 990cc engine that packs 106hp and a three-wheeled construction, was a real breakthrough.
The Canadian conglomerate Bombardier was founded in Quebec in 1942 by Armand Bombardier. The company handled mass transportation, business jet and recreational equipment production and was also renowned for the Sea-Doo personal watercraft division. The ATV line was rebranded as Can-Am in 2006. It was given the same name the dirt bikes were released under in the '80s.1 - 10
