2013 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs First Look
The Maverick 1000R comes in Yellow only and retails for $15,999.
Can-Am also built at four-seat model, the Maverick MAX.
The Maverick 1000R MAX will be a 2014 model available next summer.
Can-Am definitely wants everyone and their uncle to know that it’s producing triple-digit ponies in the Maverick.
Can-Am says the MAX has 6.5 inches more than the RZR XP4.
Stadium seating raises the rear passengers 3.5 inches for better visibility.
Can-Am says the mid-engine layout allows for precise turning that minimizes the pendulum effect of the rear end swinging around.
The wheelbase will be 29.5 inches longer and cockpit dimensions look relatively spacious for full-size adults.
Extra horsepower will be appreciated in the dunes.
BRP sources a 976cc V-Twin Rotax engine with cylinder dimensions of 91 x 75mm.
A wheelbase of 84.3 inches and track width of 64 inches indicates a stable platform.
The iTC system minimizes the effect of a driver’s foot bouncing around on the throttle pedal. It can be adjusted between Standard or Sport mode via a switch on the center dash.
Dual ignition keys offer controlled performance. One limits top speed to 44 mph and the other is full performance.
A CVT transmission carries power to the front and rear wheels via a new belt. Can-Am says it is reinforced with Zylon to create more tensile strength and belt rigidity.
FOX shocks attach to dual A-arms on the front end.
A dual exhaust is tuned specifically for the revised engine and includes a resonator chamber and the industry’s first catalytic converter.
The seats and controls feel very nice, though we didn’t get to actually drive the Maverick.
FOX Podium X 2.0 shocks on all four corners have piggyback reservoirs.
Base model in yellow retails for $15,999.
A tilt steering column moves the wheel and information display simultaneously.
Center-less aluminum wheels are shod in Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires.
The X rs model looks even more sinister.
The roll cage is two-inch diameter steel.
The X rs gets a custom steering wheel that is very nice.
Ground clearance is 13 inches.
Seats are supportive and firm. The X rs gets two-tone colors.
The rear cargo bed is not a complete bed at all. It uses the same rack platform as the Can-Am ATVs which feature the LinQ quick-attach system.
The front end attaches with dual A-arms and the rear gets a very unique design called TTA, for Torsional Trailing A-arms.
Aluminum beadlock wheels for the upgraded version.
