Can-Am Maverick 1000R Family Features and Benefits

Rotax 1000R EFI V-Twin engine
The thrilling 1000R 976cc V-Twin Rotax mill offers the best horsepower per pound value in the industry*. The 101-horsepower, liquid-cooled, single overhead cam power plant features four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm Bosch throttle body and two VDO Seimens fuel injectors. The engine’s performance is always at its peak, regardless of temperature or altitude, because of the Maverick side by side’s intelligent electronic fuel injection system and a throttle-by-wire system that is exclusive to Can-Am. The end result is a high-performance side-by-side vehicle capable of producing the comparable power and acceleration, class-leading power-to-weight , while at the same time offering exceptional value per horsepower.

Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC)
The industry-exclusive electronic throttle-by-wire iTC system offers a smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing due to the rough terrain. The iTC system — which features a rider selectable twin-mode toggle switch for throttle control — can detect unwanted bounces and then filter the input, resulting in more throttle accuracy, especially at low speed. Drivers can choose between a new ECO mode for normal operation and a Sport mode, which offers more linear throttle control. This system also reduces the number of moving parts in the vehicle; requires no maintenance; has no cables to adjust, lubricate, or replace; and the system has an increased life span.

High-flow dynamics
High-flow dynamics improve the Maverick side-by-side’s breathing while also boosting performance and power. Less restrictions to airflow, improved efficiency with air-to-fuel mixture and enhanced flow of exhaust gases result in power gains. This was partially achieved by increasing the flow volume of the intake plenum and specialized intake runners that allow the tuning of each cylinder for optimal performance. A high-flow head, larger intake and exhaust valves, tweaks to the combustion chamber, an increased compression ratio (12.0:1) and high-flow dual exhaust all contribute to the more-powerful and efficient engine.

Dual exhaust
The twin 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.

CVT transmission with PBO belt
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses a wear-resistant Zylon belt. A dual CVT exhaust design also ensures cooler belt temperatures even in extreme conditions.

10-gallon fuel tank
The Maverick has the industry’s largest fuel tank at 10 gallons (38 liters). That’s 11 percent more capacity than the nearest competitor and provides and extended range while exploring trails.

Precision-Engineered Handling
Double A-arms front suspension with dive-control geometry The Double A-arm front suspension uses a geometry that works to eliminate diving under heavy braking and rough terrain. By controlling vehicle dive, handling is more precise in all situations and terrain types. For added comfort and control, the front end, which features 14 inches of travel, wears fully adjustable FOX 2.0 Podium X Performance shocks.

Trailing Torsional A-arm (TTA ) rear suspension
The innovative TTA 5-link rear suspension on the Maverick 1000R is engineered to be compact, lightweight, efficient and extremely sturdy. The TTA suspension effectively eliminates toe change, bump steer, camber variation and vastly reduces wheels scrub during its travel. The unrivaled system features a double A-arm setup where each A-arm acts as two links and uses a toe-control link as the fifth link. The result is a more condensed and lighter package with far less pivot points and spherical ball joints. The rear suspension is more durable than competitive designs because it also reduces free play and wear, and is more resistant to undercarriage damage. Engineers designed the TTA to allow for optimal geometric “squatting” to enhance the tire-to-ground contact, while at the same time increasing its bump absorption, traction and, ultimately, overall control of the suspension.

FOX 2.0 Podium X Performance piggyback shocks
Premium FOX 2.0 Podium X performance shocks, front and rear, come standard on the Maverick 1000R. Drivers have an infinite range of tuning to better match their driving style and the various terrain conditions. The re-buildable piggyback shocks feature adjustments for preload (dual-rate spring), rebound and high- and low-speed compression. Two other critical design elements are the high-volume, 6-inch piggyback reservoir and the velocity sensitive damping control. The shocks are designed to be lightweight yet durable to withstand extreme use. The FOX shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, forged piggyback body cap, hard chrome plated, heat-treated shaft, upper and lower bearing mounts, racing-developed high-flow piston and specially formulated oil for optimal performance at variable temperatures.

2015-can-am-maverick-x-mr-xc-max-utvunderground.com058

Frame offers precise weight distribution and mass centralization
The Maverick 1000R frame offers more engineered torsional rigidity. The frame improves handling by letting the vehicle’s suspension work properly and with increased precision. The Rotax engine sits low and close to the center of the frame, which not only improves the Maverick side by side’s weight distribution and mass centralization, but also means it’s quicker to react to direction changes. The mid-engine configuration results in a lower center of gravity and, along with the rest of the chassis components, improves handling while cornering. Add in a stable 84.3-inch wheelbase and 64-inch width, and the result is a nimble, predictable Maverick that is inspires confidence.

13-inch (33cm) ground clearance
The Maverick has 13 inches (33cm) of total 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 remaining stable and precise in aggressive cornering.

214mm disc brakes
The four-wheel disc braking system on the Maverick 1000R consists of front 214mm hydraulic disc brakes with twin-piston caliper and 214mm rear hydraulic disc with a single-piston caliper for exceptional stopping power.

12-inch center-less cast-aluminum wheels
The stylish center-less cast-aluminum wheels on the Maverick were computer-optimized to add strength while at the same time reduce unnecessary weight.

27-inch (68.6cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires
The non-directional, six-ply Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 radial tires offer an extremely durable carcass, yet are lightweight in design to reduce unsprung weight. This tire provides a smooth ride, predictable cornering while at the same time offering sturdy lugs and a capable tread pattern for climbing and clawing across roots, rocks and other tough terrain.

Visco-Lok front differential
Exclusive to Can-Am, VIsco-Lok is a progressively and automatically locking front differential system, once 4×4 mode is selected. The system intelligently transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction. Visco-Lok has no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Up to 100 percent lock up with no rev or speed limiter.

Driver-Focused Design
Driver- and passenger-focused ergonomics
The Can-Am Maverick 1000R features a spacious cockpit specifically engineered to cater to the needs of drivers of various sizes and do so with industry-leading fit-and-finish. Driver-focused ergonomics means adjustable comfort, easy-to-reach controls, integrated safety features and unmatched versatility. A side by side also needs to create a similar experience for the passenger by creating a space that makes them feel one with the vehicle.

Premium fit and finish
The Maverick closely follows the premium fit-and-finish map created with the introduction of the Commander side-by-side vehicle in 2010. Attention to detail and features that extend beyond the expected are what help the Maverick stand out in a crowd. From its roomy cockpit with its detailed control panel and gauges to its stylish, seamless facade, the Maverick has a level of sophistication that’s unparalleled in the industry.

Optimal seating position
Much like its sibling, the Can-Am Commander, the Maverick has many automotive-like ergonomics to set it apart from the competition and create a comfortable and tunable space for the driver. Optimal seating starts and ends with entering and exiting the cockpit and the Maverick leads its class in this category. An adjustable driver’s seat and tilt steering wheels lets each driver customize the cockpit to their liking.

Removable, high-backrest seats with integrated support
The removable, freestanding seats in the Maverick allow you to take the same level of comfort to the campfire at the end of a long day’s journey. The seats are designed to offer both lumbar and lateral support to “hug” the occupants and keep them secure even in the roughest of terrain.

2015-can-am-maverick-x-mr-xc-max-utvunderground.com057

Adjustable driver’s seat
The full bolster seats, along with their lumbar and shoulder support, are designed to allow easy entry and exit of the machine. The driver’s seat is adjustable fore and aft without the need of tools, much like a car.

Tilt steering
The tilt steering wheel also adjusts without the need of tools. The gauge in the Maverick is integrated with the steering column to it will pivot (raise or lower) with the steering wheel for enhanced visibility.

Passenger handhold and grab bar
The Maverick line of side-by-side machines has a similar passenger handhold setup as the Can-Am Commander, offering both a grab bar and a left-hand grip bar. The dual handhold design features ergonomically friendly bends and optional hand placement for supreme comfort and convenience.

2-inch diameter, high-strength steel, ROPS-approved cage
The Roll-over Protective Structures (ROPS) industry standard was followed when designing the Can-Am Maverick family of side-by-side’s two-inch-diameter, high-strength steel cage.

Easy-clip side nets
Designed to keep a clear field of vision for both the driver and passenger, the side nets on the Maverick can be opened and close with just one click. They are also built to simplify the entry and exit of the vehicle.

Three-point seatbelts with anti-cinch
To ensure the occupants have peace of mind and comfort inside the Maverick, Can-Am engineers outfitted it with three-point seatbelt with anti-cinch. There’s also a warning alert if the driver’s belt is not fastened properly.

Multi-function rear rack with LinQ
The Maverick side by side has a multi-function rear rack that utilizes the LinQ quick-attached accessory system. LinQ enables the sporty Maverick to quickly and effortlessly install a rear storage box, rack extension or soft-sided bags. An optional bed liner offers additional storage for increased versatility.

31.6 liters of cockpit storage
The onboard storage consists of a 17.2-liter glove box and a 13.1-liter storage space beneath the driver’s seat. Dual, off-road cup holders Twin cup holders, located in the center console, have rubber flaps for off-road use.

Multi-function digital gauge
The Rectangular LCD gauge, which offers a speedometer, odometer, clock, trip meter and more, is mounted to the steering column so it adjusts with the steering wheel and stays within the driver’s sight lines.

Standard & performance D.E.S.S. keys
D.E.S.S. is the industry’s first standard anti-theft device. Electronic code in key must match code in ECU to start. The Maverick 1000R family comes with two different keys. One is standard key, which limits top speed to 44 mph (70 km/h). The second key is the performance key that has no limitation on speed or power.

240-watt lighting system
The Maverick 1000R family of side-by-side vehicles has the industry’s best lighting system at 240 watts. Automotive-style projectors, on each side, run at 120 watts in low beam and 240 watts in high-beam mode.

625-watt magneto
The Maverick 1000R electrical system can dedicate up to 300 free watts to power accessories thanks to the industry’s largest magneto.

The twin exhaust uses tuned manifold lengths and resonator chamber to create more flow. A catalytic converter, an off-road industry first, ensures optimal combustion both from a performance and emission standpoint.

CVT transmission with PBO belt
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses a Zylon belt that is more resistant to wear. A dual CVT exhaust design also ensures cooler belt temperatures even in extreme conditions.

10-gallon fuel tank
The Maverick has the industry’s largest fuel tank at 10 gallons (38 liters). That’s 11 percent more capacity than the nearest competitor and provides and extended range while exploring trails.

Double A-arm front suspension
The Double A-arm front suspension offers precision handling in all situations and terrain types. For added comfort and control, the front end, which features 14 inches of travel, wears fully adjustable FOX 2.0 Podium X Performance shocks.

Trailing Torsional A-arm (TTA ) rear suspension
The innovative TTA 5-link rear suspension on the Maverick MAX 1000R is engineered to be compact, lightweight, efficient and extremely sturdy. The TTA suspension effectively eliminates toe change, bump steer, camber variation and vastly reduces wheels scrub throughout its full 14 inches of travel. The unrivaled system features a double A-arm setup where each A-arm acts as two links and uses a toe-control link as the fifth link. The result is a more condensed and lighter package with far less pivot points and spherical ball joints. The rear suspension is more durable than competitive designs because it also reduces free play and wear, and is more resistant to undercarriage damage. Engineers designed the TTA to allow for optimal geometric “squatting” to enhance the tire-to-ground contact, while at the same time increasing its bump absorption, traction and, ultimately, overall control of the suspension.

FOX 2.0 Podium X Performance piggyback shocks
Premium FOX 2.0 Podium X performance shocks, front and rear, come standard on the Maverick MAX 1000R and give the drive an infinite range of tuning to better match their driving style and the various terrain conditions. The re-buildable piggyback shocks feature adjustments for preload (dual-rate spring), rebound and high- and low-speed compression. Two other critical design elements are the high-volume, 6-inch piggyback reservoir and the velocity sensitive damping control. The shocks are designed to be lightweight yet durable to withstand extreme use. The FOX shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, forged piggyback body cap, hard chrome plated, heat-treated shaft, upper and lower bearing mounts, racing-developed high-flow piston and specially formulated oil for optimal performance at variable temperatures.

MAX frame with precise weight distribution and mass centralization
The Maverick MAX 1000R is outfitted with a new frame that’s offers more engineered rigidity compared to its closest competition. With more torsional rigidity, a frame can improve handling by allowing the vehicle’s suspension to work properly and with increased precision. The Rotax engine sits low and close to the center of the frame, which not only improves the Maverick side by side’s weight distribution and mass centralization, but also means it’s quicker to react to direction changes. The mid-engine configuration results in a lower center of gravity and, along with the rest of the chassis components, improves handling while cornering. Add in a stable 113.8-inch wheelbase and 64-inch width, and the result is roomy-yet-nimble Maverick that is as predictable and confidence inspiring as it is powerful and dynamic.

29.5-inch Longer Wheelbase
The interior space of the rear cab was built to offer both comfortable and spacious seating area for two full-sized adults. The 29.5-inch longer wheelbase (over the standard Maverick) also creates a more comfortable ride and positions the rear passengers in front of the rear axle for improved vehicle dynamics. The Maverick MAX has a total wheelbase measurement of 113.8 inches and 148.3 inches of total vehicle length.

12.5-inch (31.75cm) ground clearance
The Maverick has 12.5 inches (31.75 cm) of total 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 remaining stable and precise in aggressive cornering.

Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes
The four-wheel disc braking system on the Maverick MAX 1000R consists of dual front 220mm hydraulic disc brakes with 32mm twin-piston calipers and dual 214mm rear hydraulic discs with a 27mm single-piston caliper for superior stopping power.

12-inch center-less cast-aluminum wheels
Inspired by the wheels found on the award-winning G2 Outlander 1000 XT, the stylish center-less cast-aluminum wheels on the Maverick were computer-optimized to add strength while at the same time reduce unnecessary weight.

27-inch (60.6cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires
The non-directional, six-ply Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 radial tires offer an extremely durable carcass, yet are lightweight in design to reduce unsprung weight. This tire provides a smooth ride, predictable cornering while at the same time offering sturdy lugs and a capable tread pattern for climbing and clawing across roots, rocks and other tough terrain.

Visco-Lok front differential
Exclusive to Can-Am, Visco-Lok is a progressively and automatically locking front differential system, once 4×4 mode is selected. The system intelligently transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction. Visco-Lok has no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Up to 100 percent lock up with no rev or speed limiter.

Optimal seating position
The Maverick has many automotive-like ergonomics to set it apart from the competition and create a comfortable and tunable space for the driver. Optimal seating starts and ends with entering and exiting the cockpit and the Maverick leads its class in this category. The innovative driver’s seat in the Maverick truly gives off the impression of feeling “locked in” and can be further dialed in with both an adjustable steering wheel and seat.

Removable, high-backrest seats with integrated support
The front seats in the Maverick are removable and freestanding, which means you and your passengers can feel as comfortable in them a the campfire at the end of a long day as you have during your trail journey. The seats are designed to offer both lumbar and lateral support to “hug” the occupants and keep them secure even in the roughest of terrain.

Adjustable driver’s seat
The full bolster seats, along with their lumbar and shoulder support, are designed to allow easy entry and exit of the machine. The driver’s seat is adjustable fore and aft without the need of tools, much like a car.

Tilt steering
The tilt steering wheel also adjusts without the need of tools. The gauge in the Maverick is integrated with the steering column to it will pivot (raise or lower) with the steering wheel for enhanced visibility.

Dynamic Passenger Comfort
Dynamic Passenger Comfort ergonomics means offering optimal seating, viewing and comfort for rear seated passengers. The rear seats feature the same ergonomics as the front passenger seat, in terms of both lumbar and shoulder support as >well and the overall seat design. The rear passenger area also includes a total of four handholds, easy-clip side nets and stress free access.
