This concept includes class-leading comfort, dual handhold options, stadium seating and easy entry and exit.
The Maverick MAX vehicle also has a larger hydraulic disc brake system up front compared to the standard Maverick two-seater. The Maverick MAX platform is available in both a standard model and the X rs DPS performance package, which includes Tri- Mode Dynamic Power Steering, Visco-Lok QE, FOX 2.5 Podium performance shocks, revamped seating, updated beadlock wheels, X-Team graphics, three color choices and more.
CAN-AM MAVERICK MAX 1000R FAMILY FEATURES AND BENEFIT
ROTAX 1000R EFI V-TWIN ENGINE
The 101-horsepower, liquid-cooled, single overhead cam 976cc V-Twin Rotax, features four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm Bosch throttle body and two VDO Seimens fuel injectors. The engine’s performance is always at its peak, regardless of temperature or altitude, because of the Maverick side by side’s intelligent electronic fuel injection system and a throttle-by-wire system that is exclusive to Can-Am. The end result is a high-performance side-by-side vehicle capable of producing the comparable power and acceleration, class-leading power-to-weight, while at the same time offering exceptional value per horsepower.
INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITC)
The industry-exclusive electronic throttle-by-wire iTC system offers a smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to the rough terrain. The iTC system — which features a rider selectable twin-mode toggle switch for throttle control — can detect unwanted bounces and then filter the input, resulting in more throttle accuracy, especially at low speed. Drivers can choose between a new ECO mode for normal use and a Sport mode, which offers more linear throttle control. 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.
Rotax engineers used high-flow dynamics to increase the engine’s performance. An easier-breathing engine produces more power. Less restrictions to airflow, improved efficiency with air-to-fuel mixture and enhanced flow of exhaust gases result in power gains. This was partially achieved by increasing the flow volume of the intake plenum and specialized intake runners that allow the tuning of each cylinder for optimal performance. A high-flow head, larger intake and exhaust valves, tweaks to the combustion chamber, an increased compression ratio (12.0:1) and high-flow dual exhaust all contribute to the more powerful and efficient engine.
The twin exhaust uses tuned manifold lengths and resonator chamber to create more flow. A catalytic converter, an off-road industry first, ensures optimal combustion both from a performance and emission standpoint.
CVT TRANSMISSION WITH PBO BELT
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses a Zylon belt that is more resistant to wear. A dual CVT exhaust design also ensures cooler belt temperatures even in extreme conditions.
10-GALLON FUEL TANK
The Maverick has the industry’s largest fuel tank at 10 gallons (38 liters). That’s 11 percent more capacity than the nearest competitor and provides and extended range while exploring trails.
DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION
The Double A-arm front suspension offers precision handling in all situations and terrain types. For added comfort and control, the front end, which features 14 inches of travel, wears fully adjustable FOX 2.0 Podium X Performance shocks.
TRAILING TORSIONAL A-ARM (TTA) REAR SUSPENSION
The innovative TTA 5-link rear suspension on the Maverick MAX 1000R is engineered to be compact, lightweight, efficient and extremely sturdy. The TTA suspension effectively eliminates toe change, bump steer, camber variation and vastly reduces wheels scrub throughout its full 14 inches of travel. The unrivaled system features a double A-arm setup where each A-arm acts as two links and uses a toe-control link as the fifth link. The result is a more condensed and lighter package with far less pivot points and spherical ball joints. The rear suspension is more durable than competitive designs because it also reduces free play and wear, and is more resistant to undercarriage damage. Engineers designed the TTA to allow for optimal geometric “squatting” to enhance the tire-to-ground contact, while at the same time increasing its bump absorption, traction and, ultimately, overall control of the suspension.
FOX 2.0 PODIUM X PERFORMANCE PIGGYBACK SHOCKS
Premium FOX 2.0 Podium X performance shocks, front and rear, come standard on the Maverick MAX 1000R and give the drive an infinite range of tuning to better match their driving style and the various terrain conditions. The re-buildable piggyback shocks feature adjustments for preload (dual-rate spring), rebound and high- and low-speed compression. Two other critical design elements are the high-volume, 6-inch piggyback reservoir and the velocity sensitive damping control. The
shocks are designed to be lightweight yet durable to withstand extreme use. The FOX shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, forged piggyback body cap, hard chrome plated, heat-treated shaft, upper and lower bearing mounts, racing-developed high-flow piston and specially formulated oil for optimal performance at variable temperatures.
MAX FRAME WITH PRECISE WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION AND MASS CENTRALIZATION
The Maverick MAX 1000R is outfitted with a new frame that’s offers more engineered rigidity compared to its closest competi- tion. With more torsional rigidity, a frame can improve handling by allowing the vehicle’s suspension to work properly and with increased precision. The Rotax engine sits low and close to the center of the frame, which not only improves the Maverick side by side’s weight distribution and mass centralization, but also means it’s quicker to react to direction changes. The mid-engine configuration results in a lower center of gravity and, along with the rest of the chassis components, improves handling while cornering. Add in a stable 113.8-inch wheelbase and 64-inch width, and the result is roomy-yet-nimble Maverick that is as predictable and confidence inspiring as it is powerful and dynamic.
29.5-INCH LONGER WHEELBASE
The interior space of the rear cab was built to offer both comfortable and spacious seating area for two full-sized adults. The 29.5-inch longer wheelbase (over the standard Maverick) also creates a more comfortable ride and positions the rear passengers in front of the rear axle for improved vehicle dynamics. The Maverick MAX has a total wheelbase measurement of 113.8 inches and 148.3 inches of total vehicle length.
12.5-INCH (31.75CM) GROUND CLEARANCE
The Maverick has 12.5 inches (31.75 cm) of total ground clearance for optimum performance in challenging terrain. The suspen- sion and frame were engineered to produce a vehicle that can tackle rugged terrain in predictable fashion while also remaining stable and precise in aggressive cornering.
FOUR-WHEEL HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
The four-wheel disc braking system on the Maverick MAX 1000R consists of dual front 220mm hydraulic disc brakes with 32mm twin-piston calipers and dual 214mm rear hydraulic discs with a 27mm single-piston caliper for superior stopping power.
12-INCH CENTER-LESS CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS
Inspired by the wheels found on the award-winning G2 Outlander 1000 XT, the stylish center-less cast-aluminum wheels on the Maverick were computer-optimized to add strength while at the same time reduce unnecessary weight.
27-INCH (60.6CM) MAXXIS BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES
The non-directional, six-ply Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 radial tires offer an extremely durable carcass, yet are lightweight in design to reduce unsprung weight. This tire provides a smooth ride, predictable cornering while at the same time offering sturdy lugs and a capable tread pattern for climbing and clawing across roots, rocks and other tough terrain.
VISCO-LOK FRONT DIFFERENTIAL
Exclusive to Can-Am, Visco-Lok is a progressively and automatically locking front differential system, once 4×4 mode is selected. The system intelligently transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction. Visco-Lok has 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. Up to 100 percent lock up with no rev or speed limiter.
DRIVER- AND PASSENGER-FOCUSED ERGONOMICS
OPTIMAL SEATING POSITION
The Maverick has many automotive-like ergonomics to set it apart from the competition and create a comfortable and tunable space for the driver.
