PERFORMANCE BEYOND THE
SPEC SHEET

What the Can-Am Renegade 800R lacks in engine size, it makes up in efficiency. Powered by a 800cc, liquid cooled, V-Twin Rotax® engine, the Renegade 800R produces less horsepower than the Polaris Scrambler XP 850 HO, but still offers quicker acceleration through turns for a highly responsive ride.

COMPACT DESIGN
UNCOMPROMISED CONTROL

The Renegade’s Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension keeps its wheels 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 Renegade remains predictable, giving you better all around control.

Not all traction systems are created equal. Can-Am Visco-Lok is an automatic locking front differential system that allows you to easily transfer 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.
