2014 Can-Am DS 450 X xc Features and Benefits:
Engineered to race, the reliable Rotax® 4-TEC 450, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine has what it takes to ensure you’re first off the starting line and keep you out in front.
The DS 450 is equipped with a 449 cc 4-stroke EFI Rotax engine, offering the largest bore and the largest intake valves from the DOHC 4-valve head with 97 x 60.8 mm bore and stroke. The EFI uses the largest throttle body and a near-straight intake path.
Unmatched power-to-weight ratio
The DS 450 features an innovative, no-weld ALTEC™ aluminum frame and a hearty Rotax® engine for the best power-to-weight ratio of any 450-class sport ATV. Combined with other weight-saving innovations and mass centralization engineering to reduce unsprung weight, it’s unmatched in its class.
Competition-ready 5-speed manual transmission with foot-shifter and manual clutch lever. Features heavy-duty clutch and 9 friction plates with Direct Link mechanism.
Efficient fuel delivery
The Electronic Fuel Injection system with 46-mm throttle body, 16-bit CPU, and 32-MHz clock speed efficiently delivers fuel to the engine, resulting in more power and reliability.
Heavy-duty, race-ready O-ring chain can handle the high stress of racing.
Take control on the track with the adjustable hollow rear axle that reduces unsprung weight and adds to the advantage of mass centralization.
Stronger yet lighter
A maximum strength, no-weld, all-aluminum frame that uses a twin pyramidal structure. Major components are firmly secured with aluminum fasteners called lock-bolts. The frame is stronger yet much lighter than a traditional ladder frame.
Lowest possible unsprung weight
Features a Chromoly hollow rear axle, extended-reach aluminum wheel hubs, aluminum sprocket, cast-aluminum swingarm, and 10.5 in of travel, for the lowest possible unsprung weight and the most mass centralization.
Sport front suspension
Features a short spindle, one-piece aluminum knuckle, and the longest aluminum upper and lower A-arms for a 46-in sport ATV.
KYB HPG C36 aluminum Piggyback front shocks feature dual-speed compression, rebound and preload adjustments and 9.5-in of travel. Aluminum KYB HPG C40 Piggyback rear shocks feature dual-speed compression, rebound and preload adjustments and 10.5 in of travel.
Adjustable rear axle
Many top motocross pros are choosing to race with a rear width that is slightly narrower than the front-end width. You can too, with the DS 450 X mx Chromoly 4140 adjustable-width hollow axle. Adjustments from 46 in to 50 in are possible with 0.5-in spacers.
Racing tires and wheels
The DS 450 X xc features 21-in ITP Holeshot GNCC front tires mounted on 10-in black, aluminum ITP T-9 wheels with beadlock rings. The taller lugs provide superior traction in demanding race conditions.
Loaded with race features including aluminum nerf bars, skid plates, and front bumper, you’re always ready to race.
