Industry-Leading Performance
Lead the pack with a 101-hp Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine, featuring state-of-the-art high-flow dynamics. The sound of dual exhausts will soon be your signature.

Most Powerful
The 976cc, 101-hp Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine is Can-Am’s most powerful side-by-side engine. This liquid-cooled, single-overhead-cam power plant features four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm Bosch∞ throttle body and two sophisticated VDO Siemens∞ fuel injectors.

Better Throttle Control
This electronic throttle-by-wire system works in conjunction with the 54 mm Bosch∞ throttle body to produce smooth delivery, even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to the rough terrain. The iTC system detects unwanted bounces and filters the input. Comes with a progressive and sport mode.

More Power
When an engine breathes easier, it can produce more horsepower. So we optimized air intake, combustion, and exhaust flow. Larger intake plenum, high-flow heads, larger valves, increased compression ratio, and high-flow dual exhaust all contribute to this more powerful and efficient engine.

Increased Durability
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system showcases a Zylon-reinforced belt, a material with 1.6x higher tensile strength and increased belt rigidity in compression compared to a regular belt, keeping it cooler. A redesigned drive pulley with increased diameter for extra durability.

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.

Precision-Engineered Handling
Innovative features like the revolutionary TTA rear suspension and 14 in of travel make the Maverick more precise and agile, providing confidence through every moment of every ride.

Innovative Rear Suspension
The innovative Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) rear suspension is a compact version of a five-link suspension for no-bump steer, and the lowest scrub for optimized bump absorption and tire-to-ground contact. Features a lower unsprung weight and 14 in of travel.

Centralized Weight
Other sport side-by-sides feature engines toward the rear, increasing inertia and tendency to oversteer. The Maverick engine is centered between the two seats, centralizing weight for more agile steering and easier cornering. The result is a nimble Maverick that is confident, powerful, and dynamic.

Capable and Precise Ride
The double A-arm front suspension features 14 in of travel for a capable and precise ride.

Performance Shocks
Front and rear FOX∞ PODIUM X Performance 2.0 HPG Piggyback shocks with compression and preload adjustments. Features dual-rate spring, 6-in Piggyback reservoir, velocity sensitive damping control, high-flow pistons, and more. Re-buildable design allows for easy service and valving changes.

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

Better Control
Exclusive to Can-Am, Visco-Lok is a progressively and automatically locking front differential system. The system intelligently transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction. No buttons to push or levers to pull. Get progressive lock-up with no rev or speed limiter.

Rider-Focused Design
Every inch of the Maverick was designed to provide both driver and passenger with a more connected sport side-by-side experience, thanks to maximum comfort and easy access to cockpit controls and information.

No Tools Required
Premium seating with a full backrest, lumbar and shoulder support, and side bolsters for lateral support during aggressive riding. Tilt steering and an adjustable driver’s seat are easily adaptable to a range of drivers and driving styles. No tools required.

Convenient Storage
The onboard storage consists of a 4.5 gal (17.2 L) glove box and a 3.4 (13.1 L) storage space beneath the driver’s seat. Convenient and versatile cockpit storage space so you can take your essentials with you.

Easy On, Easy Off
The high strength, multipurpose rear rack works with the LinQ quick-attach accessory system, letting you easily install or remove a storage box, rack extension, bags, or other items. Numerous edges and holes improve use with tie-downs and bungee cords. Rack capacity of 200 lb (91 kg).

Standard Anti-Theft System
D.E.S.S. is the industry’s first standard anti-theft device. Electronic code in key must match code in ECU to start. The Maverick 1000R family comes with two different keys. One limits top speed to 44 mph, while the other has no limitations.

Lighting The Way
The Can-Am side-by-side vehicles family features a 240-W lighting system. Automotive-style projectors on each side run at 120 W on low beam and 240 W on high beam.

High-Strength Protection
2-in diameter, high-strength steel cage designed around the Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) industry standard. Meets the requirements of the ANSI / ROHVA 1-2011 standard for ROPS, with the ISO 3471 option in section 10.
