Further magnifying the brand’s industry leadership in the mud-riding category, Can-Am introduces the impressive, four-seat Maverick MAX X mr 1000R to its side-by-side line of off-road vehicles.

Lineup Improvements
FOX QS3 Shocks
New for 2017, is the arrival of the FOX Podium QS3 piggyback shocks that allow for simpler compression adjustments. The shocks feature a tool-free adjuster and numerous fine-tuning ranges for exceptional ride quality. The new FOX Podium 2.0 QS3 shocks are featured on the Commander XT-P, Commander MAX Limited, Maverick DPS / Maverick MAX DPS, while the FOX Podium 2.5 QS3 shocks are standard on the Maverick X mr / Maverick MAX X mr, Maverick Turbo / Maverick MAX Turbo and Maverick MAX X ds Turbo vehicles. On the sportier packages, an additional Bottom-Out Control allows for less compression damping at ride-height to improve comfort and traction while giving huge damping at the end of the stroke to reduce harsh impacts.
The Maverick Turbo now shares its successful Quick Response System (QRS) Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with the Maverick X mr and Maverick MAX X mr side-by-side vehicles. The QRS system allows for even better power transfer and faster engagement time while also reducing friction for longer belt life. The CVT ventilation has strategic inlets and outlets and a specific impeller design to created more cold-air flow moving through the pulleys.
Front Sway Bar
All Commander and Maverick side-by-side vehicles now wear a front sway bar that improves cornering stability. The system is designed to lessen the amount of weight transfer in aggressive cornering, leading to flatter and predictable handling.
Maxxis Tires
New Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires are now standard on the base Can-Am Commander sideby- side vehicle. The versatile, 6-ply-rated tire features a radial construction that leads to a smoother ride in rough, diverse terrain.
New Wheels
The Maverick X mr and Maverick MAX X mr will now wear an all-new 14-inch eightspoke wheel with a unique machined, aluminum-and-painted black finish.
