The newest member of the 2014 Can-Am Maverick lineup is the Can-Am Maverick 1000R X mr. The 101-horsepower Rotax powered Can-Am Maverick 1000R X mr is built to offer impressive performance, precision-engineered handling and a driver focused design to conquer a muddy trail or closed-course bog. The new vehicle is based off the two-seat Maverick platform, but includes an industry-exclusive and mud-specific X package, as well Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering, Visco-Lok QE and an updated gauge package. The Maverick 1000R X mr also wears an Air Control Suspension (ACS) with FOX Air Assist HPG Piggyback shocks (with a four-inch range of adjustment) and mud-hunting 30-in. Gorilla Axle Silverback tires for ultimate control in the mud. In addition, to keep the engine air intake, CVT air outlet and CVT air inlet free of water and debris, they have been snorkeled to strategic locations on the machine.

MAVERICK 1000R X MR PACKAGE
AIR CONTROL SUSPENSION (ACS) WITH FOX AIR ASSIST HPG PIGGYBACK SHOCKSVia an onboard compressor, the industry-exclusive ACS system adjusts the front and rear high-pressure gas FOX Air Assist HPG Piggyback shocks to six rider-selectable preload levels – for a total adjustment range of 4 inches (102mm). This allows the suspension of the X mr to be adjusted on-the-fly depending on terrain or vehicle load. It also comes with a hose that can be used to fill tires or other accessories while out on the trail.
The same tires found on the unmatched Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr ATV, the proven 30-inch Gorilla Axle Silverback tires were chosen for their exceptional mud-riding characteristics. Developed by Gorilla Axle for mud riding and racing, these tires have been tested in the deepest mud holes of east Texas and Louisiana. With a tall lug and aggressive tread pattern, the tires offer superb mud performance, yet a smooth ride when traveling to the mud hole.
The tall, ITP cast-aluminum wheels and stylish wheel hubcap work in tandem to give the Outlander X mr an aggressive look.
BRP has made sure that critical components like the CVT intake, CVT exhaust and engine air intake are located as high as possible on the Maverick 1000R X mr. Positioned high above the muddy, wet conditions below, the system is designed with the proper air volume to keep everything operating efficiently.
The CVT system is calibrated for performance in wet terrain and conditions and features a 13-bolt sealing system on the compartment cover. A dedicated drain plug is built into the cover and easily accessible if the need ever arises to remove water from the CVT housing. The CVT intake is at a higher location in the chassis for optimal performance in wet riding conditions. Automatic transmission with standard engine braking featuring high, low, park, neutral and reverse is also included.
Calibrated specifically for use in the Maverick line of side-by-side vehicles, BRP’s Tri-Mode DPS system offers variable steering assistance and is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. It also allows the driver to dial in his or her preference with three modes (Hi, Med, Lo).
All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. It progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differential systems, does not have a speed or rev limiter. DPS and Visco-Lok QE, when, combined, improve handling and performance in slow-speed technical terrain and mud.
The Maverick 1000R X mr has an upgraded gauge over the base Maverick and now includes a 3-D background for enhanced visual clarity. Featuring state-of-the-art instrumentation with an analog tachometer and speedometer combined with an advanced digital information center.
The three-spoke steering wheel is outfitted with molded grips and a brushed aluminum centerpiece to add to the Can-Am side-by- side’s performance looks.
A stylish, yet rugged, front bumper protects this powerful mud vehicle in the toughest of conditions.
Stitched with the X-package logo and accented with white and yellow highlights, the seats on the Maverick 1000R X mr are race ready and offer industry-leading comfort. X-package graphics and sponsor logos enhance the high-performance looks while complimenting the attractive yellow-and-black color scheme.
