PERFORMANCE
BEYOND THE
SPEC SHEET

The Can-Am Rotax® engine is known for efficiency and reliability. Its proven, 71-hp Rotax® V-twin engine gives you more power and quicker acceleration. And, even though the Polaris Sportsman Touring 850 EPS has a larger engine, the Outlander MAX DPS 800R produces similar horsepower and total exhilaration.

UNCOMPROMISED CONTROL

The Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension keeps the wheels of the Outlander MAX moving straight up and down, eliminating scrub and camber change. Competitive suspension systems cause the wheels to move in a butterfly motion over bumpy terrain, reducing tire-to-ground contact. But the Outlander MAX remains predictable, giving you better all around control.

Not all traction systems are created equal. Can-Am Visco-Lok QE is an automatic locking front differential system that transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the opposite wheel with traction. So you can overcome just about any obstacle you meet along the way without thinking about it, unlike some competitor models.
