Performance:

Industry-Leading Performance
Hitting the trail, going hunting, or just taking in nature, there’s a Rotax® engine that will get the job done. Choose from the 71-hp Rotax® 800R or the 82-hp Rotax® 1000 liquid-cooled V-Twin engine to match your off-road adventure.

Category-Leading Performance
Available in a 71-hp Rotax 800R or 82-hp Rotax 1000 liquid-cooled V-Twin engines, with four valves per cylinder and single overhead camshafts. Both feature twin fuel injectors that supply efficient fuel delivery into the combustion chamber for powerful, yet precise performance.

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.

Handling:

Precision-Engineered Handling
The Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) offers three levels of rider-adjustable steering assistance that can be adapted to match the terrain while also reducing kickback to the steering.

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.

Superior Stopping Power
Outboard disc brakes with 214-mm discs and twin-piston calipers. Large 214-mm outboard hydraulic disc brakes feature twin-piston calipers to provide superb stopping power.

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.

Rider-Focused Design
Put the Commander to work towing heavy loads up to 1,500 lb. Plus, the added convenience of strategically placed passenger handgrips, accessible controls, and cockpit storage, and you’re ready to hit the trails or get to work.

Exclusive and Versatile
The industry’s most versatile and usable cargo box design has a 600-lb cargo capacity, dual storage levels, anti-rust box, and tilt-assist dumping. Cargo box with two levels separated by a removable, water-resistant panel, that offers an upper and lower bed with their independent tailgate.

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.

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.

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. Can-Am side-by-side vehicles come with two different keys. One limits top speed to 44 mph (70 km/h); 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.
