The cover has finally been pulled on this very anticipated and exciting addition to BRP’s already impressive lineup of vehicles. A retort was in order; Polaris caused it with their success in creating a motorized wonder, a mix of ATV, Rally car, and Baja racing, all into one very fast and cool Ranger RZR XP 900. Arctic Cat then joined in with an impressive candidate for this exciting new class of vehicle with the Wildcat 1000 and now Can-Am completes this typically North-American competitive trend, with the Maverick, a fascinating new ride. The real surprise to this reveal is the 4-seater version which will be available next summer. Available in both a standard model and the X rs performance package, this family oriented vehicle is very similar in design to the 2-seater Maverick but has its own specialized engineering to accommodate multiple passengers.
All Maverick vehicles are powered by the mighty 101-hp Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine with high-flow dynamics. All that power, plus the 14 in. travel suspension and 64 inch width, are the most important factors that qualify this vehicle for the Full-Sport Side x Side class. The Maverick comes in already a leader in torque, acceleration and power-to weight ratio. We just can’t wait to get our hands on the X® rs version that adds front and rear FOX PODIUM X Performance RC2.5 HPG piggyback shocks with dual-speed compression, rebound and threaded preload adjustments. Finding a racetrack to fully appreciate this race-ready version won’t be a problem, since all ATV events now include Side x Side classes. The new Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) independent rear suspension, adjustable driver’s seat, tilts steering, dual exhaust, 27-in. Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires on great looking 12-in. center-less cast-aluminum wheels and host of other great features, are sure to please many off-road fans. Stay tuned into ATV Trail Rider magazine to find out all there is to known about the fascinating new Can-Am Maverick.
