Yesterday we shared the latest on Can-Am's newest vehicle, the Maverick 1000R, which will go head-to-head with the Polaris RZR 900 XP and Arctic Cat Wildcat. Today we look at two additional models, the Maverick 1000R X rs and Maverick MAX 1000R.
Can-Am Maverick 1000R
X rs Package
Outfitted with graphics, premium shocks, beadlock wheels and
other custom features, the Maverick 1000R X rs will satisfy the appetite of any
high-performance side-by-side enthusiast. Starting with the base Maverick
1000R, the X rs package goes above and beyond the call of duty by offering the
most highly advanced side-by-side piggyback shocks ever found on a stock side-by-side.
Throw in dynamic racing-inspired graphics, lightweight 12-inch (30.5cm)
aluminum beadlock wheels and other specialty add-ons and the 1000R X rs is as
pleasing on the eye as it is on the trail.
Fox Podium X
Performance RC2.5 piggyback shocks
Developed in collaboration with Fox, the high-grade Fox
shocks make their first appearance on a factory-built side-by-side vehicle. The
re-buildable shocks sit at all four corners and are fully adjustable for
Dual-Speed Compression and rebound. The 2.5 Podium shocks offer a high-volume
6-inch piggyback oil reservoir and specially formulated oil for improved flow and
heat dissipation. Proven technologies such as upper and lower spherical bearing
mounts, velocity-sensitive damping control and a high-flow piston, optimize
performance in varying terrain. They are designed to be extremely durable with
a hard-anodized 2.5-inch aluminum body, forged aluminum piggyback body cap and
a 5/8-inch (16mm) hard chrome-plated, heat-treated shaft. To maintain supreme control,
the Fox shocks’ extension velocity after compression can be fine-tuned to optimize
The Maverick 100R X rs has12-inch aluminum center-less,
computer-optimized true beadlock wheels. This mechanical fastener makes it
nearly impossible for the tire to break its bead from the wheel during heavy
acceleration or cornering.
The gauge on the Maverick 1000R X rs has an upgraded gauge
over the standard model. Featuring state-of-the-art
instrumentation with an analog tachometer and speedometer combined with an advanced
digital information center.
Custom Steering Wheel
The three-spoke steering wheel is outfitted with molded
grips and a brushed aluminum centerpiece to add to the Can-Am side-by-side’s
X-package seat trim
The Maverick 1000R X rs has its own seat design and colors
to match its exclusive configuration. Stitched with the X Package logo and
highlighted with white and yellow highlights, the seats on the Maverick look
like they were taken right out of a race car. The Can-Am Maverick 1000R X features
a premium X-Package design with a nod to off-road racing. The Can-Am
X-Team-inspired Can-Am black-and-yellow plastic with new white highlights
produces a performance-oriented finish that’s bound to turn a few heads.
Can-Am Maverick MAX
The 2014 Maverick MAX 1000R is an all-new four-seat
side-by-side from Can-Am designed to raise both the performance and comfort
levels of the modern multi-passenger off-road vehicle. The MAX configuration
includes all the same class leading performance (101 hp), handling and
ergonomic influences of the two-seat Maverick 1000R, as well as
the industry-exclusive Can-Am design elements, however, the
four-seat vehicle receives its own specialized engineering to accommodate
multiple passengers. The MAX platform will be available in both a standard
model and the X rs performance package, which includes Fox Podium X Performance
RC 2.5 Piggyback Shocks, beadlock wheels, graphics and more.

Can-Am Maverick MAX
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.
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.
The Maverick MAX 1000R will be available summer 2013.
