CAN-AM COMMANDER 1000 DPS FAMILY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

ROTAX 800 V-TWIN ENGINE

The liquid-cooled, single overhead cam power plant is powerful and efficient. It has four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm throttle body and two VDO Siemens fuel injectors. The sophisticated electronic fuel injection system automatically keeps the engine’s performance at its peak, regardless of temperature or altitude. The progressive throttle ensures power is manage- able whether in precise rock crawling or opening it up on the straights.

EPA / CARB COMPLIANT DESIGN

Located within the side-by-side vehicle’s muffler, the catalyst and lambda sensor meet EPA and CARB compliancy.

INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITC)

The throttle-by-wire system teams with the 54mm Bosch throttle body to produce smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to the terrain. The iTC system can detect unwanted bounces and then filter the input, resulting in more throttle accuracy, especially at low speed. This system also reduces the number of moving parts in the vehicle; requires no maintenance; has no cables to adjust, lubricate, or replace; and the system has an increased life span.

ECO MODE

The Commander side-by-side offers selectable Sport mode, which offers a more linear throttle control for performance driving, and ECO mode for driving under normal use situations.

CVT TRANSMISSION

Continuously Variable Transmission offers engine braking and high, low, park, neutral and reverse.

HANDLING

REAR DIFFERENTIAL

A spiral bevel gear rear differential reduces noise.

DOUBLE A-ARMS FRONT SUSPENSION WITH DIVE-CONTROL GEOMETRY

The Double A-arm suspension uses front dive-control geometry, which works to eliminate diving under heavy braking and rough terrain. By controlling vehicle dive, the Can-Am Commander handling is more precise in all situations and terrain types. The front end, which features 10 inches of travel (25cm), has the largest diameter front, five-way preload-adjustable gas shocks in the industry (36mm or 1.4 inches) for overall durability and better fade resistance.

Can-Am Commander 1000 DPS
The 2015 Can-Am Commander 1000 DPS has a new color option for 2015, includes updated wheels and new Light Grey color offering.

TRAILING TORSIONAL INDEPENDENT (TTI) REAR SUSPENSION

Inspired from the world of top-level, off-road trophy trucks, this trailing arm design provides excellent control and stability, especially in rough terrain by eliminating scrub. Wheels move rearward as they move up and down producing a smoother ride than the competition, and the side-by-side does not waver down the trail. TTI reduces tire wear and has 75 percent fewer parts than competitive designs. The durable rear end features 10 inches of travel (25 cm) and the largest diameter rear, five-way preload-adjustable gas shocks in the industry (36mm (1.4 inches) for reduced fading.

11-INCH (27.9CM) GROUND CLEARANCE

Offers a whopping 11 inches (27.9 cm) of total ground clearance for maximum performance for conquering challenging terrain. We built sag right in to the suspension, which lets the system work in its travel “sweet spot.”

TRI-MODE DYNAMIC POWER STEERING (DPS)

Calibrated specifically for use in the Commander line of side-by-side vehicles, BRP’s Tri-Mode DPS system offers variable steer- ing assistance and is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. It also allows the driver to dial in his or her preference with three modes (Hi, Med, Lo).

VISCO-LOK QE

All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. It progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differentials, does not have a speed or rev limiter. DPS and Visco-Lok QE, when, combined, improve handling and performance in slow-speed, technical terrain

214MM DISC BRAKES WITH TWIN-PISTON CALIPERS

Front and rear outboard disc brakes with 214mm discs and twin-piston calipers.
