Valcourt, Quebec/Canada, June 1, 2017 – BRP (TSX: DOO) continues to optimize its Can-Am off-road lineup with multiple changes for 2018. The brand is again setting the bar with the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market, the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model. The thrilling Rotax ACE engine was reconfigured to deliver a potent 172hp. Additional lineup changes include more options for utility and recreational use, with the introduction of additional specialty packages.

“The 2018 Can-Am lineup reflects the passion and exhilaration we bring to people,” said Anne-Marie LaBerge, BRP's senior VP, Global Brands & Communication. [CP1] “Along with expanding our Maverick X3 and Defender family of off-road vehicles, we have enriched our recreational-utility category Can-Am Commander and Outlander ATV segments with added performance, improved value and more specialty packages. Our expanded list of genuine accessories also adds more convenience and customization levels.”

The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle family continues to make industry-altering headlines with the arrival of the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model, the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market. The turbocharged 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model delivers 12 percent more horsepower and 10 percent added torque. The new flagship super-sport side-by-side vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side family also now includes a 120hp Maverick X3 Turbo side-by-side. The new market point-of-entry vehicles, offered in two- and four-seat packages come standard with many of the performance features for which the Maverick X3 is known.

To reinforce its influence in the utility-recreation category, the Can-Am Defender vehicle family   now includes a market point-of-entry in the crew category with the Defender MAX HD8 package. The new 2018 Defender MAX XT CAB HD10 super model features enhanced ground clearance, arched A-arms, with a greater footprint and an integrated heater system.

The Commander 1000R side-by-side vehicle also received a significant update for 2018, with a performance bump to 92hp, a wider stance and larger brakes for enhanced appeal in the recreational-utility category. The Can-Am Commander 800 side-by-side vehicle has improved value for the new model year.

ATV
Can-Am ATVs have long been recognized for their performance, precision-engineered handling and consumer-focused design, and those key pillars have been reinforced for 2018. Inspired by a Can-Am heritage model, the Outlander X xc 1000R ATV makes a triumphant return delivering the true crossover-type Sport-Rec performance.

Powered by either a Rotax V-Twin 650 or Rotax V-Twin 850 engine, the all-new Outlander North Edition ATVs, available in one-up and MAX platforms, also includes an exclusive equipment package for cold weather and a super low L gear for hard work. The Can-Am Outlander Mossy Oak Hunting Edition ATV family now includes three available engine packages, as a new Outlander 450 package joins the existing 570 and 1000R Rotax V-Twin-powered offerings.

    • Slow 2017 HiSun Strike 250

      Guys, I need some expert help..  I just bought a 2017 HiSUN Strike 250 and was real disappointed to find out that there is an electronic spark cut out at 30 mph.  Every article that I read prior to purchase said that the unit could hit 45-50 mph with the pedal stop screw removed.  Not the case with my machine.  Never bothered to ask the dealer before purchase, so it is my fault...  My guess is that HiSun got some flack about thier "kids" machine doing 50 mph and were forced to add the electronic limiter..  Can anyone verify that previous to the 2017 model that the machine can actually could do 45-50mph with the just pedal screw removed?  If so, what RPM is it at when doing 45-50 mph.  Maybe I can get an older version of the Delphi ECU, assuming that is where the spark cut out is located...? The machine is definitly full featured, but as you all mention, needs to be gone over after purchase.  A-men to stipped screws, and if you suffer from a crazy squeak sound that sounds like chains dragging, check the torque on the suspension a-arms and shocks.  Ours were so tight, we could barley get them loose and the suspension would not move, essentially zero travel.  Once we lightened up the torque, greased the plastic bushings, and added blue threadlocker, the suspension actually worked and all the squeaks went away.  Also have same problem with the shift linkage rubbing on pipe and also pipe rubbing on chassis.. This weeks project! Any help on the speed would be awesome!
