Industry-Leading Performance
Count on the reliable power of the 82-hp Rotax® 1000 V-Twin engine, with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) for optimal power and performance.

Category-Leading Performance
Liquid-cooled, 8-valve Rotax 976cc V-twin pumps out a class-leading 85 horsepower, yet is refined thanks to EFI and iTC. The liquid-cooled, single overhead cam power plant features 4 valves per cylinder, fed by a 54-mm Bosch‡ throttle body and 2 sophisticated VDO Siemens‡ fuel injectors.

Better Throttle Control
This electronic throttle-by-wire system works in conjunction with the 2.13 in. Bosch∞ throttle body to produce smooth delivery, even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to rough terrain. The iTC system detects unwanted bounces and filters the input. Comes with a progressive and sport mode.

Strong Power Output
This package provides a more powerful magneto with 625 W of power output.

Standout Performance
Provides optimal power-to-weight ratio and acceleration, offering you a ride that delivers every bit of the standout performance you would expect from Can-Am.

Largest In The Industry
The industry’s largest fuel tank lets you ride longer and work harder. With a capacity that’s 11% more than its nearest competitor, the 10-gal gas tank supplies maximum range for work and play.

Precision-Engineered Handling
Handle almost any terrain with 10” of front suspension travel and FOX HPG piggyback shock technology for superior handling.

Eliminates Scrub and Camber Changes
The only independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes, meaning the wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it. Reconfigured for improved traction and optimal transfer of power to the ground.

Better Steering Feel
The Can-Am Commander’s Double A-arm front suspension is designed with dive-control geometry that works to eliminate diving under heavy breaking and rough terrain. The front end features 10 in of travel and five-way preload-adjustable motion-control shocks.

Adjust On-The-Fly
Via an onboard compressor, the system adjusts the rear high-pressure gas FOX Air Assist shocks to six rider-selectable preload levels. This allows the suspension performance and stiffness to be adjusted on-the-fly. Comes with a hose to fill tires.

Steering Assistance
The electronically controlled power steering provides the driver with three different levels of assistance when steering. The amount of assistance varies with the vehicle’s speed to adjust the steering input effort to a comfortable level. Features Visco-Lok QE for a faster engagement point.

Better Control
All DPS-equipped models have Visco-Lok† QE, which has all the features and benefits of the standard quick-engagement Visco-Lok† differential, but with an even quicker engagement point. This differential, unlike some competitors’ differentials, does not have a speed limiter.

Lightweight Tires and Wheels
The lightweight radial tires offer a smoother ride, predictable cornering and optimum climbing confidence. Installed on redesigned cast aluminum wheels featuring a strong lightweight construction and a premium finish.

Rider-Focused Design
Loaded with a ton of features like GPS, sound system, and a premium roof, it’s no wonder we call this ride our most luxurious.

On-The-Go Navigation
Can-Am partnered with leading GPS manufacturer Garmin to equip the Commander LIMITED with an integrated touch-screen Montana 650t GPS. Features 5 MP camera, preloaded topographic maps, 4-in color display, barometric altimeter, 3-axis electronic compass, wireless data sharing, and more.

Included Sound System and Speakers
To further improve your off-road riding experience and give the Commander 1000 LIMITED extra functionality, Can-Am engineers added a four-speaker sound system compatible with iPod/iPhone and MP3 players, and offering a USB port and auxiliary input.

Powerful Winch
Can-Am chose a premium WARN winch kit for the ultimate performance and durability. Includes a roller fairlead, wired remote control and integrated winch remote storage.

Stylish Protection
The half windshield offers stylish protection without the airflow restriction of a full windshield. Plus, our two-piece hard roof is designed to be durable and attractive, while letting you customize your vehicle as you like it. Fast, easy, and toolless installation and removal.

Durable Painted Plastic
This high-grade, durable painted plastic finish adds to this elite models luxurious package. Available in eye-catching Pure Magnesium Metallic painted plastic or Pearl White. This method of production ensures the plastic retains its finish and is more scratch resistant.

Superior Protection
Heavy-duty front bumper for a beefier look and functionality. Rugged bed rails are included in the package. Bed rails installed on the Dual-level™ cargo box add more tie-down points for cargo carrying. Plus, mudguards create an extra layer of protection for the occupants.
