Can-Am Unveils 2017 Off-Road Lineup
Can-Am Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition
An all-new Can-Am Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition HD10 will lead the pack for 2017, providing hunters with a setup that gives them what they need - and what they donít. The Mossy Oak model is built around the Defender XT, which offers seating for three on its bench seat. The Mossy Oak Hunting Edition is set apart from its Defender brethren thanks to water-dipped Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo. It also features added gear for the outdoorsman and hunters in the form of a full hard top, half windshield, Double Kolpin Stronghold gun boots, tool holders, Headache Rack with LinQ quick-attach system. For body protection, Can-Am offers a full under-body skid plate with aluminum, pre-runner style skid plate, as well as a heavy-duty front bumper. The Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition also comes with 14-inch black cast-aluminum wheels, and hunters will appreciate the LED RAM spotlight plugs directly into a 12V lighter-type DC outlet. The suggested retail price of the Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition is $19,699.
Maverick MAX X mr 1000R
Can-Am will also head toward 2017 with two new Maverick side-by-sides. The Maverick MAX X mr 1000R features a 101-horsepower engine designed to power through muddy terrain. The new MAX model is actually 29.5 inches longer than the two-seat X mr 1000R. This performance-minded Maverick is equipped with a CVT trans with Can-Amís Quick Response System (QRS) thatís the same as the one found on the Maverick MAX Turbo.
To help soak up the bumps, the new Maverick Max X mr 1000R is fitted with Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 piggyback shocks. For high-performance steering, Tri-Mode dynamic power steering is fitted, along with a new front sway bar with a torsional spring design. For really grabbing the terrain, Can-Am relies on 30-inch Gorilla Axle Silverback tires fitted on 14-inch cast-aluminum wheels. The X mr 1000R is also fitted with a 4,500-pound winch, mudguards and a host of other features. The suggested MSRP is $23,999.
Maverick xc 1000R
Can-Am will also offer a new 60-inch Maverick xc 1000R model for 2017, which is essentially a sleeker, more narrow version of the Maverick that is designed specifically for tight wooded terrain or for the race course. The Maverick xc 1000R is powered by a 101-horsepower Rotax 1000R V-Twin engine. The xc 1000R also features Fox 2.0 Podium C piggyback shocks to soak up the terrain, and a new front sway bar is fitted on the unit to compliment its narrower frame. The xc 1000R features 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires that are fit on 14-inch cast-aluminum wheels. Can-Am says the 2017 Maverick xc 1000R will be priced at $15,699.
