    New summertime toy that should get the blood flowing.

    Just took delivery of our Can Am Maverick 1000 X-RS. Havent had a chance to take it out for a squeeze but I know from the new model intro, its 101hp is pretty mind blowing in a vehicle like this. Shouldnt be too long before our track dries out and we can put this thing up against our RZR XP and Wildcat X.

    That is soooo cool. I hope to see it this summer, but please no more 70 ft table top jumps with me as the passenger.

    My favorite side by side by a long shot. I want one but i just ordered a new Freeride 137 and i'm needed a new dirt bike mine is a 2006.

    The side by sides are real popular up here now and what some people do with them i bet polaris or BRP will soon have a sand rail or dune buggy, they are getting real close to a buggy now. I'd love to have a real life Axial EXO buggy.

    No, at the moment the outlander 1000's and renegade 1000's are still 88hp. the maverick has a fairly worked over motor and ive been assured by the engineers at Can-am, 101hp is all this motor is capable of putting out reliably.

    I also learned that by definition a SXS ATV can have no more than a 1000cc engine. Anything larger and it is classed as an "offroad buggy" putting it into a whole different classification and subjecting it to a whole different set of rules and requirements. So, its unlikely you will see any MFG's going above the 1000cc mark. But we all know the technology exists to get MORE HP from 1000cc's and im sure youll see that in the future. For now, 101 is literally unuseable in anything but a sand dune. Ive tried... your tires just dig a hole to china.


    Or launch you to the moon:


    BTW... ^^ that hurt.

    it does seem like a little bit of over kill, but i bet both the outlander and the maverick are loads of fun to drive. Right now i am rocking a 250cc honda recon lol.

    The bike just behind the maverick in the first photo is an Outlander 1000 Max XTP. Its a ridiculous machine, especially with your wife on the back. But also ALOT of fun. Theres nothing like pulling a wheelie on a 2 up ATV.

    Yup. That was at the Can Am media intro of the maverick last year.
