For those who know the Can-Am brand, BRP makes its debut in the utility side-by-side segment by injecting some of the Can-Am DNA into the Defender model. The Can-Am Defender vehicle was designed and engineered from the ground up, to establish new standards in terms of torque and power, as well as versatility to cater to all types of outdoor activities. BRP leveraged its proven Rotax engine technology to create a work-focused version of the durable V-Twin Rotax engines, specially calibrated to offer the best torque of the industry: the new Rotax 50-hp HD8 or 72-hp HD10 engines.
The capable Defender provides exceptional performance with control and delivers to the operator the confidence to go almost anywhere. Each Defender features a Can-Am-exclusive TTA-HD rear suspension providing optimal comfort and drivability as well as long durability. The TTA-HD is borrowed from unique and proven Can-Am TTA rear suspension, but redesigned to handle heavier loads. The Defender is laden with unmatched terrain competencies with its versatile 4-mode traction system, three selectable engine operating modes, superb tight turning radius and available, specific-tuned Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) for enhanced maneuverability and comfortable suspension with 10 inches (25.4 cm) of travel.
