BRP has significantly raised the bar in the multi-passenger, sport side-by-side segment of the off-road industry with the introduction of the all-new Maverick MAX X ds line of side-by-side vehicles. The top-of-the-line 2015 Can-Am Maverick MAX X ds vehicles feature a premium rider-focused cockpit with comfortable seating for four adults. It is purpose built to offer the same industry-leading power, precision handling and unmatched quality of the two-seat Maverick X ds, but benefits from a longer 29.5-in. wheelbase. Its spacious cockpit accommodates drivers and passengers of various sizes and does so with a supreme fit-and-finish.
The Maverick MAX X ds is available with the all-new turbocharged 121-hp Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine option, the indus- try’s first factory-installed turbocharger, or the proven 101-hp Rotax 1000R V-Twin engine. The Maverick MAX 1000R Turbo X ds offers the most exhilarating four-seat ride in the sport, thanks to its 121-hp output and with 40% more torque than its closest competitor. Complementing its industry-leading performance, the Maverick Turbo X ds also showcases a high-flow air intake system featuring a Donaldson airbox and a new Continuously Variable Transmission with Quick Response System (QRS) and improved ventilation.
The Maverick MAX X ds family also shares a completely revised innovative handling package, which includes a revised rear frame for longer wheelbase, redesigned Torsional Trailing A-arm (TTA) independent rear suspension for more travel, improved A-arm front suspension, new Can-Am-exclusive FOX shocks and quick-ratio steering.
CAN-AM MAVERICK MAX X DS FEATURES AND BENEFITS
NEW TURBOCHARGED, 121-HP ROTAX® 1000R V-TWIN ENGINE OPTION
The industry’s first factory-installed turbocharger produces a class-leading 121 horsepower. That’s roughly 10% more horse- power and 40% more torque than its closest competitor. The electronically controlled wastegate automatically adjusts boost pressure for optimal performance in any conditions and even maintains full performance at altitudes up to 5,000-ft. Paired to the turbo is an air-to-air Intercooler with built-in fan to keep cooled air flowing to the engine even in the most demanding conditions. To keep up with the added pressure in the engine, new low-pressure forged pistons have been added for long-lasting performance. Finally, the new high capacity injectors ensure a better fuel delivery, providing an optimal air/fuel mixture to im- prove performance.
NEW HIGH AIRFLOW AIR INTAKE WITH DONALDSON AIRBOX (TURBO ONLY)
Keeping the turbocharged engine breathing cool and clean air is a key factor for high-performance, so a large Donaldson air box has been positioned close to the engine for maximal airflow. This air box and filter setup is made for high airflow capabilities to meet the Turbo’s demand for clean air, even in the most extreme conditions. The new plenum efficiently manages turbo- compressed air to obtain optimal performances.
NEW CVT WITH QUICK RESPONSE SYSTEM (QRS) (TURBO ONLY)
The CVT system was also reconfigured for the increased power of the turbocharged engine. It features a completely redesigned driven pulley with a new Quick Response System (QRS) and an improved drive pulley that allows better power transfer and faster engagement time. The new design reduces friction for longer belt life and improves cooling. The CVT ventilation has been improved by modifying the inlets and outlets and by adapting the design of the impellers, resulting in 68% more cold air flowing through the pulleys.
101-HP ROTAX® 1000R V-TWIN ENGINE AND DUAL EXHAUST
The 976cc, 101-hp Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine supplies reliable, thrilling power. This liquid-cooled, single-overhead-cam power plant features four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm Bosch® throttle body and two sophisticated VDO Siemens® fuel injectors. The dual exhaust uses tuned manifold lengths and resonator chamber to create more flow. A catalytic converter ensures optimal combustion both from a performance and emission standpoint.
The Maverick MAX 1000R X ds is built around that concept starting with large intake plenum and high-flow heads working together to optimize the air going to the engine. Efficient combustion is achieved by joining large valves to a high compression ratio. A high-flow, dual exhaust completes this powerful engine design.
CVT TRANSMISSION WITH ZYLON-REINFORCED BELT
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) showcases a Zylon-reinforced belt, a material with 1.6 times higher tensile strength and increased belt rigidity in compression compared to a regular belt, keeping it cooler. It also features an integrated engine braking system that will help maintain a steady speeds when descending hills.
INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITC)
The electronic throttle-by-wire system works in conjunction with the 54mm Bosch® throttle body to produce a smooth delivery, even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to rough terrain. The iTC system, which includes a progressive and Sport modes, detects unwanted bounces and filters the input. This system also reduces the number of moving parts in the vehicle; requires no main- tenance; has no cables to adjust, lubricate, or replace; and the system has an increased life span. Low mode on MAX Turbo X ds models is aggressive and more linear.
10-GAL. (37.8 L) GAS TANK
With its large 10-Gal. (37.8L) fuel tank and efficient fuel consumption, the Can-Am Maverick lets the driver focus on riding and less on refueling.
RECONFIGURED TORSIONAL TRAILING A-ARMS (TTA) REAR SUSPENSION WITH 16-IN. TRAVEL
The innovative Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) rear suspension system, which was completely redesign for dune and desert application, now offers a full 16-in. (40.6cm) of travel to provide a smooth ride at a hard-charging pace and in technical ter- rain. The compact version of a five-link suspension offers no bump steer and low scrub. This all translates to a more controlled wheel movement, optimal bump absorption and tire-to-ground contact for predictable handling. A compact design also means low unsprung weight for quicker suspension reaction to changing terrain. Along with the new FOX shocks, the rear suspension system offers a perfect balance of confidence at high speeds and the agility and nimbleness of a true sport vehicle.
EXCLUSIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE FOX 2.5 PODIUM RC2 PIGGYBACK REAR SHOCKS
The Maverick MAX X ds family is equipped with Can-Am exclusive FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 Piggyback Shocks for superb capability, comfort and adjustability. The rear shocks feature Dual-Speed Compression (DSC), rebound and dual-rate spring with infinite preload adjustments allowing to fine tune the system for any driving style, terrain or course conditions. A position-sensitive
EXCLUSIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE FOX 2.5 PODIUM RC2 PIGGYBACK REAR SHOCKS (CONT.)
Bottom-Out Control and a spring crossover allow for less compression damping at ride-height to improve comfort and traction while giving huge damping at the end of the stroke to flatten out the biggest of bumps. Aluminum body and reservoir improve heat dissipation for less fade and reduced weight. The 7/8-in. shaft gives the rear shocks a lot of additional strength and buck- ling resistance to handle the most demanding conditions. The rear suspension systems work in tandem to allow the Maverick MAX X ds to float over rough terrain and maintain a straight line while doing it.
REDESIGNED DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION WITH 15-IN. TRAVEL
The redesigned double A-arm front suspension features 15-in. (38.1cm) travel for a capable and precise ride.

They also offer adjustable dual- rate spring preload, Dual Speed Compression (DSC) adjuster and rebound adjuster for custom settings. The large-diameter bore allows for greater damping force capability, while allowing the shock to run at lower overall temperatures, offer less fade and more consistent damping.
REVISED FRAME WITH NEW 117-IN. WHEELBASE
The Maverick MAX X ds family has a revised frame, including a modified rear subframe, center rail and a few tweaks to the front end. The new 117-in. (297.2cm) longer wheelbase supplies a more comfort and a confidence-inspiring ride at higher speeds.
Competitive side-by-side vehicles feature engine layouts toward the rear of the vehicle that can increase inertia and a tendency to over steer. The Maverick MAX engine, centered between the two rear seats, centralizes weight for more agile steering and easier cornering. The result is a nimble vehicle that is maneuverable, predictable and quick to react to direction changes.
12.5-IN. (32CM) GROUND CLEARANCE
The Maverick has a 12.5-in. (33cm) ground clearance for optimum performance in challenging terrain. The suspension and frame were engineered to produce a vehicle that can tackle rugged terrain in predictable fashion while also remain- ing precise in aggressive cornering.

NEW 14-IN. ALUMINUM BEADLOCK WHEELS WITH 28-IN. MAXXIS BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES
The new 14-in. beadlock wheels with performance tires are designed to be lighter for low unsprung weight. The mechanical fastening beadlock system makes it nearly impossible for the tire bead to break loose from the wheel during heavy acceleration or cornering. Larger 28-in., 6-ply Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires, which feature sturdy lugs and a non-directional tread pattern, offer a smoother ride over a variety of surfaces.
TRI-MODE DYNAMIC POWER STEERING WITH NEW QUICK-RATIO STEERING
The Maverick 1000R X ds models feature Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPSTM) with three selectable modes (MIN, MED and MAX) of steering to adapt to driver’s preference. Each mode is designed to offer less assistance at high speed for better precision and more assistance at low speed for easier steering. Matched with a revised quick-ratio steering system that has a reduced the ratio from lock-to-lock the Maverick X ds offers a shorter turning radius.
VISCO-LOK QE† AUTO-LOCKING FRONT DIFFERENTIAL
Exclusive to Can-Am, Visco-Lok QE† is an automatic locking front differential that reacts quickly to wheel slippage by trans- ferring power to the wheel with traction. This front differential allows real, continuously engaged four-wheel drive to transfer maximum torque to the ground at any moment. The Visco-Lok QE† will deliver power without any speed or rev limiter pulling you through whoops and bumps. The fully engaged front end means steering stays light and manageable and offers precise corner- ing and agile maneuverability.
RIDER-FOCUSED DESIGN COMFORTABLE SEATING FOR FOUR
