Can-Am Maverick 1000R Long Term Review

Can-Am Maverick 1000R at Sand Mountain, NV
Can-Am Maverick 1000R at Sand Mountain, NV

The new-from-the-ground-up Can-Am Maverick 1000R is built to offer industry-leading performance, precision-engineered handling and a driver-focused design unlike any sport side-by-side vehicle to date. The innovative Maverick 1000R not only offers the most powerful engine within the industry, but also leads its class in torque, acceleration and power-to- weight ratio. The Maverick side by side’s muscular setup is complimented by a unique, sport-tuned front-and-rear suspension, a rigid frame with a centralized mid-engine layout and advanced ergonomics that make it stand out in a crowd. And the Maverick is sure to please the most dedicated hardcore off-road sport enthusiasts with its unmatched and aggressive styling and its rider-friendly cockpit, both of which unquestionably reflect the Can-Am brand.

Powering the Maverick 1000R family of side-by-side vehicles is a proven Rotax® 1000R V-Twin power plant that is unrivaled in the side-by-side vehicle market. The 101-horsepower engine rests in a sport-tuned frame that is designed especially for the Maverick. The steel frame was engineered in way that it offers supreme traction, athletic agility and confidence-inspiring handling, while at the same time offering improved rigidity versus the competition.

A revolutionary and compact Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) independent rear suspension improves traction while also reducing unsprung weight and eliminating bump steer for extremely predictable handling. A strategically designed exterior gives the Maverick side-by-side vehicle its own look, while the innovative and purpose-built performance package reward owners with unmatched comfort, convenience and safety. The Maverick side by side is made for recreational enjoyment, but also caters to true adventurists with its muli-function rear rack with LinQ system compatibility.

Swapped out the sand tires for our 28-inch STI Roctanes mounted on OMF Performance wheels and headed to the track to do some more testing. The power the Maverick puts down continues to put a smile on our face every time we get behind the wheel. The Elka Stege 4 shocks soaked up everything we tossed at them, and it was awesome to have full ability to adjust high and low speed compression and rebound.

Sand Mountain - July 2013

We threw our sand tires that are mounted up on OMF Performance billet center wheels onto the Maverick and headed to Sand Mountain for the day.  The temperatures were over 100 degrees and the dunes were smooth and ridges were sharp.  Maverick has great power to pull these tires. Suspension with the new Elka shocks was awesome.  Muzzys dual exhaust sounded great and definitely seemed to give the Maverick more power. And all the Turnkey UTV accessories really finish off the look.

Prairie City SVRA - April 2013

We tested our Maverick with 31x11.50R15 tires and also with stock Maxxis Big Horns.  The power of the Maverick is incredible. Rock crawling ability, not so much.

These shocks feature independent adjustability of the high- and low-speed compression which allows you to adjust your suspension to react differently to big hits, sharp edges and jumps as well as for cornering and accelerating. Racing conditions can vary dramatically from one track to another, and sometimes even within the same track. With the Stage 4, you can make your suspension react with optimal efficiency over an entire track without compromise.
