Can-Am Maverick 1000R and Max 1000R Sport Side-By-Sides


Since the introduction of the Can-Am Commander, we've been hearing Can-AmTalkers asking about a sport model side-by-side from BRP... well, it looks like they've been hearing the same thing.

Introducing the Can-Am® Maverick™ 1000R and Maverick™ MAX 1000R families.

2013 Can-Am Maverick 1000R Family

The new-from-the-ground-up Can-Am® Maverick™1000R 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 not only offers the most powerful engine within the industry, but also leads its class in torque, acceleration and power-toweight 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 centralized mid-engine layout and advanced ergonomics that make it stand out in a crowd. And the Maverick is sure to please the most dedicated hardcore 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 unrivaled in the side-by-side vehicle market. The 101-horsepower engine rests in a sport-tuned frame that is designed especially for the Maverick. 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 reward 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 LinQ system compatibility.

Available in two models, the Maverick 1000R and high performance 1000R X RS Packages. The new side-by-sides from Can-Am offer a long list of benefits and features.

Can-Am Maverick MAX 1000R Family Features and Benefits

29.5-inch(75 cm) Longer Wheelbase

With 29.5-inch(75cm) longer wheelbase over the standard Maverick, the interior space of the rear cab was built to offer both comfortable and spacious seating area for two full-sized adults. The Maverick MAX has a total wheelbase measurement of 113.8 inches(289cm), also contributing to a more comfortable ride. Offers more room than other four-seater sport side-by-side — 6.4 in.(16.3cm) more than the Polaris RZR XP-4 900.

Ergonomics design for rear passengers comfort

The rear seats feature the same ergonomics as the front passenger seat, in terms of both lumbar and shoulder support as well and the overall seat design. The rear passenger area also includes a total of four handholds for the rear passengers. There is a grip bar on the center console for each passenger as well as an additional grab bar near the cage. The spacious rear section was also configured to improve the entry and exit of the vehicle. Full-length, easy-clip side nets can be opened with one hand and offer a clear line of sight for the rear passengers.

Stadium-style Rear Seats

Raised 3.5 inches(9cm) higher than the front seats, the rear passenger seating features stadium-style positioning for increasing passengers visibility while riding. This design element not only improves the rear passenger’s sight lines, but also helps create a more interactive environment.


Parts and Accessories

For the past few years, Can-Am has made a conscious effort to have Parts and Accessories design take place along side product design...and the result is a long list of great accessories that allow you to customize your vehicle to meet your needs...  So, if you are looking to make your Can-Am better for doing chores, pushing the envelope, or just to look better than the others you ride with, they have just the things you need.
