While the Maverick R is not a replacement for the X3, Can-Am made their newest model to be the top of their lineup. Intended to be the best in its class, this unit proves to be ideal for the open desert riding typical in the Southwest United States or Dakar Rally.
The newly designed suspension may have been what caught most peoples’ attention, but the new model packs more than just looks. The Maverick R touts an industry-leading 240-horsepower engine with a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). One can select Normal, Sport, or Sport+ driving modes and the computer will control how aggressively the transmission shifts and engine performs. It allows allows for switching between Automatic and Manual to control the 7-speed transmission via paddle shifters attached to the steering column. If left in Automatic, one can still downshift manually for more control (e.g., setting up for a corner or getting ready for a steep hill climb).
That being said, there is always room for improvement, and we have spent extensive time to rigorously test and refine our suspension products to take the Maverick R to the next level.
So far for the vehicle, we have Ride-Improvement System, Dual-Rate Springs, Shock Savers and Billet Reservoir Caps, Limits Straps, Radius Rods, Sway Bar Links (front & rear), even more products coming soon.
