The new Maverick Sport X rc side-by-side vehicle ($21,299 US) comes factory-equipped for rock-crawling with a wider stance, higher clearance and added interior and exterior protection for operation in harsh environments. The inclusion of Smart-Lok* with ROCK mode, high-grade FOX shocks, arched A-arms and larger tires provide exceptional maneuverability when the going gets rough.
Elevated ground clearance
The Maverick Sport X rc vehicle has a 15-in. (38.1 cm) ground clearance to accommodate varying conditions, but more so to shine in the rocks, where high clearance is mandatory. Its raised stance and off-road posture ensures top-notch performance without limit range of sight.
The Maverick Sport X rc is equipped with a talented 100 hp 976cc Rotax V-Twin engine. The 1000R engine, optimized for sporty trail and desert situations, is placed in the rear of the chassis to produce a quiet, cool ride for the occupants. Along with reduced vibration, each power plant includes engine braking for enhanced control on the trail.
Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
The Maverick Sport X rc include the single-mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) system that is tuned for both low- and higher-speed trail riding.
Smart-Lok Technology – Full lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically controlled automatic modes for rocks
The electronically controlled front lockable differential system with Smart-Lok technology ensures maximum traction and enhanced slow-speed maneuverability especially in challenging terrain. The Smart-Lok system, developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, takes integrated intelligence to new heights and allows on-the-fly adjustments. The differential can lock and unlock on the fly no matter the speed, letting the driver focus on the trail. The electronic system, via its Front Differential Module (FDM), gathers at least six data inputs (engine torque, vehicle speed, wheel RPM, steering feedbacks, throttle pedal, gear position) and smartly, strongly and quickly engages an integrated actuator with proper load and without delay. The result is simple steering output (same as being fully open), allowing the driver to accurately conquer varying obstacles while maintaining momentum.
The driver has the option to select between four modes: 2×4 / 4×4 fully locked / 4×4 ROCK and 4×4 TRAIL. The pre-set ROCK and TRAIL settings are designed to enhance the off-road experience by offering a more customized feel to match to specific terrain, conditions and demands.
Intelligent throttle control (iTC) with Sport / ECO modes
The maintenance-free, throttle-by-wire system (iTC) teams with a large volume throttle body to produce smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to the terrain. The Maverick Sport X rc have a selectable Sport mode, which offers a fast throttle response for quicker trail driving, and ECO mode for a smoother ride with a more filtered power delivery. The system also includes and Electronic Hill Descent Control for improve performance.
Intensified Can-Am DNA
Influenced by the Maverick X3 X rc package, the appropriately outfitted and new Maverick Sport X rc wears the family’s “rc” graphics, an ominous color scheme and specific components to boldly state it, too, is ready to for rock crawling.
Double A-arm front suspension with sway bar and FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 shocks
The Maverick Sport X rc 1000R includes an arched double A-arm front suspension package, with 14.75-in. (37.5 cm) of suspension travel. Premium FOX 2.5 PODIUM Piggyback with QS3 compression adjustable shocks improve the handling and performance in difficult terrain.
TTA rear suspension with sway bar and FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 shocks
The arched Torsional Trailing A-arm (TTA) rear suspension, complete with a sway bar, provides 14.75-in. (37.5 cm) of suspension travel and wears FOX 2.5 PODIUM Piggyback with QS3 compression adjustment shocks to deliver outstanding comfort on the trail.
