From Fisher's ATV World
Valcourt, Québec, Canada – BRP has expanded its line of Can-Am Maverick 1000R side-by-side vehicles with the addition of a four-seater, new X packages, all-new Tri-mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) and new colour schemes. The Can-Am Commander family of side-by-side vehicles will also feature Tri-Mode DPS and the all-new Commander XT-P package. For 2014, the full line of Can-Am side-by-side vehicles and ATVs continues to deliver class-leading performance, precision-engineered handling and driver-focused designs.
"As promised, we have grown our Can-Am side-by-side vehicle line-up to include the 2014
Can-Am Maverick MAX 1000R. We also outfitted both the Maverick and Commander side-by-side vehicles with an all-new Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering that further enhances handling and offers more convenience for our customers,” said Yves Leduc, vice-president and general manager, North America division. “BRP now offers a highly innovative, versatile and diverse family of side-by-side vehicles for both two and four passengers that continue to strike a chord with off-road consumers around the world.”
This new 101-HP Can-Am Maverick MAX 1000R side-by-side vehicle has the same proven engineering of the original two-seat Maverick 1000R model, but features seating for four full-sized adults, rear passenger-specific ergonomics and a 75-cm (29.5-inch) longer wheelbase. It is also available in an X rs package with X package accessories, including a complete FOX suspension system. New to the Maverick line-up is a Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering package and a new narrower-width Maverick 1000R X xc package for trail riding enthusiasts. White is a new base colour. A white with black and Can-Am Red colour schematic is also available on X package vehicles.
The Commander line, which offers both an 800R and 1000 Rotax V-Twin EFI engine, now has Tri-Mode DPS package with Visco-Lok QE (quicker engaging) for precision handling. The new Commander 1000 XT-P wears XT package accessories and a sportier FOX suspension. All Commander side-by-side vehicles also get a new "ECO” mode switch for normal operation. Linear throttle response can be selected through "Sport" mode.
"The global market is extremely demanding, seeking new and more useful products annually. We have met the needs of the global consumer by offering a deeper, more capable side-by-side line-up with the updated Can-Am Maverick, new Maverick MAX and Commander line-ups,” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager, International division. “Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering, X packages and comfortable seating for four adults with the all-new 2014 Maverick MAX 1000R side-by-side make our line-up far more versatile and deliver on the promise of ‘The Ride Says It All.’”
