Can-Am® Maverick™ 1000R side-by-side

The new-from-the-ground-up Can-Am® Maverick™ 1000R side-by-side 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 side-by-side 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 centralised mid-engine layout and advanced ergonomics that make it stand out in a crowd. And the Maverick is sure to please the most dedicated 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 powerplant that is unrivalled in the side-by-side vehicle market. The 101-horsepower (75 kW*) engine rests in a sport-tuned frame that is designed especially for the Maverick side-by-side. 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 rewards 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 multi-function rear rack with LinQTM system compatibility.

"The Can-Am Maverick side-by-side vehicle is sure to please the most dedicated hardcore offroad sport enthusiasts with its unmatched and aggressive styling industry-leading performance, both of which unquestionably reflect the Can-Am brand," said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager, International division.
