Can-Am And Turo Partner For Extended Test Drives Of The Ryker And Spyder

If you’ve ever wanted to check out the three-wheeled Can-Am Ryker, now might be the time as the company has inked a new deal with Turo.

As part of the partnership, selected hosts will be given Can-Am three-wheel vehicles which users will be able to take on extended test drives and experiences. The hosts have been hand-picked by Can-Am and promise to be product expects who provide “superior customer service.”

Can-Am models will be available in select markets including Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, California. They’ll also be offered in Myrtle Beach and Palm Springs, Florida as well as Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada.

The companies see the partnership as a unique opportunity to engage with potential customers in a non-sales environment. This is an interesting approach as the people can spend more time with the vehicles and get to know them better before making a purchase decision.

The pilot program launches today and will provide users with access to the Ryker and Spyder. Riders don’t need a motorcycle license to drive either vehicle and the hosts will have helmets for people looking to book a ride.
