BRP’s 2013 Can-Am ATV line-up will be led by the next generation Outlander MAX family, all-new Outlander 1000 X mr ATV, an added Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) package and other key models and upgrades for the new year including completely new Outlander 500 and 650 ATV line-ups.
BRP also made significant upgrades to the engine calibration of its Can-Am Outlander 500 ATV.
A 15-percent power increase over last year’s model means the Rotax 500 engine remains the most powerful engine in its class. With the addition of the Outlander DPS package, the Outlander 500 DPS model is arguably the best value in its class.
The Outlander MAX line consists of four Rotax engine packages (1000, 800R, 650 and 500) and all models will now feature the second-generation Surrounding Spar Technology (SST G2) frame for unmatched comfort and performance. The MAX platform also received an entirely redesigned passenger seat system for additional comfort, convenience and improved ergonomics. A visually stunning Pearl White painted finish is new on the MAX LIMITED model.
In addition to the Outlander MAX updates for 2013, the mud-specific Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr model is based on the new MAX chassis as well. Available in either its trademark yellow and black X-Package theme or an all-new NEXT G-1 Vista camouflage finish, the Outlander X mr ATV features a larger, relocated radiator, ITP wheels, larger, restyled analog / digital gauge package, rider-adjustable air-controlled suspension and other refinements for the new year. Its Rotax 1000 engine means it is the most powerful ATV ever built for tackling the mud-riding parks around the world.
Many of the remaining Can-Am ATV models in the line-up also received the updated SST G2 frame and suspension changes, as well as the integration of BRP’s exclusive Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) system. In fact, a DPS package model, which includes DPS with Visco-Lok QE and cast-aluminum wheels, will be offered as a price point ATV in all four (500 cc+) Outlander ATV segments.
BRP also introduced the sport-touring themed XT-P packages for both the 800R and 1000 one rider Can-Am Outlander and two-rider Outlander MAX configurations. Both the 800R and Outlander 1000 XT-P get the new analog / digital gauge package, but also have a full FOX suspension system, 12-inch (30.5-cm) aluminum beadlock wheels, racing-inspired handlebars and an exclusive color scheme.
The DS 450 ATV also returns for 2013 with FOX Float X EVOL piggyback shocks standard on the front of the DS 450 X mx model. This represents the most advanced stock front shock in the industry.
BRP has enhanced its award-winning Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicle line-up for 2013 as well with the addition of Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) and two striking color schemes for both its Commander 1000 X and 1000 Limited packages.
The Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicles deliver even more on the Can-Am pledge to produce enthusiast-inspired vehicles with cutting-edge design and meaningful innovation by offering two proven engine options, five overall platforms, including a new DPS package, and industry-leading versatility.
This new Can-Am Commander DPS package takes the base Commander and adds the Dynamic Power Steering system with Visco-Lok QE (quicker engaging), and 27-inch (68.5-cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires on 14-inch (35.5-cm) cast aluminum wheels.
Returning for 2013 are the XT and LIMITED packages as well, adding such features like a 4,000-pound (1,814-kg) WARN winch, half-windshield, premium wheels and tires and an entertainment system with integrated Garmin touchscreen GPS.
BRP offers two Rotax V-Twin EFI engines (800R or 1000), which give a key ingredient to the Can-Am Commander formula: power. It is, however, the consumer-friendly features like the exclusive Dual-Level cargo box, comfortable seats and ample room for two adult passengers that complete the overall package.
