BRP Reveals New 2013 Sea-Doo, Can-Am Products At Dealers And Distributors' Meeting




Valcourt, Québec – BRP dealers and distributors from around the world gathered in Maryland to attend the unveiling of model year 2013 Can-Am Spyder roadsters and Sea-Doo watercraft. BRP also introduced two additional new products to its current 2013 Can-Am off-road line-up: the Can-Am Maverick sport side-by-side vehicle and a new Can-Am Outlander ATV.

At SnoWest Magazine’s sister publication, Dirt Toys Magazine, we provided lots of details on the Dirt Toys website (www.dirttoysmag.com) about the new Maverick and Outlander 650 X mr.

The highlight of the Can-Am roadster line-up is the all-new sport-touring roadster. After the Can-Am Spyder RS roadster in 2008 and the Spyder RT model in 2010, BRP is introducing its third model to the lineup: the Can-Am Spyder ST roadster: a sport touring vehicle with the right blend of comfort and sportiness to set it apart from the others. With its sport-touring rider ergonomics, added footboards for more legroom, the same muscular Rotax 991 V-Twin engine and all BRP-renown safety features such as VSS, the Spyder ST roadster is as comfortable and nimble for a quick jaunt around town, as it is on a spirited ride on a favorite country lane or a week-long getaway up the coast.

Innovations to the 2013 Can-Am roadster line-up also include the Brembo brake system specifically designed for Can-Am roadsters, a new suspension for better handling and performance and new front fenders with integrated LEDs for refined style and improved aerodynamics.

Dealers and distributors also had a chance to try last week's star of the Sand Sports Super Show in San Diego, CA, where BRP unveiled its first sport side-by-side vehicle, the Can-Am Maverick. The new-from-the-ground-up Can-Am Maverick 1000R side-by-side vehicle is built to offer industry-leading 101 hp performance, precision-engineered handling and a driver focused design unlike any sport side-by-side vehicle to date.

Powered by a Rotax 1000R V-Twin powerpack that is unrivalled in the side-by-side vehicle market, the new Can-Am Maverick model offers the most powerful engine within the industry and leads its class in torque, acceleration and power-to-weight ratio. The Maverick side-by-side vehicle’s muscular set-up is complemented by a unique, sport- tuned front-and-rear suspension, a rigid frame with a centralized mid-engine layout, advanced ergonomics and a stunning design that make it stand out in a crowd.

"The Can-Am Maverick side-by-side vehicle is sure to please the most dedicated hardcore offroad sport enthusiasts with its unmatched and aggressive styling industry-leading performance, both of which unquestionably reflect the Can-Am brand," Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager, International division, said.

Other features of the Maverick sport side-by-side vehicle include: high-flow dynamics, Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC), dual exhaust, continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Zylon reinforced drive belt, a steel frame engineered in way that it offers supreme traction, athletic agility and confidence-inspiring handling while at the same time offering improved rigidity versus the competition.

A revolutionary and compact Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) independent rear suspension improves traction while also reducing unsprung weight and eliminating bump steer for extremely predictable handling. A strategically designed exterior gives the Maverick side-by-side vehicle its own look, while the innovative and purpose-built performance package rewards owners with unmatched comfort, convenience and safety.

The Maverick side-by-side vehicle is made for recreational enjoyment, but also caters to true adventurists with its multi-function rear rack with LinQ system compatibility.

BRP also introduced its 2014 Can-Am Maverick MAX 4-seat model, available worldwide next summer.

Continuing with surprises, BRP also introduced an all-new Can-Am Outlander 650 X mr ATV, its newest hero for mud-riding enthusiasts. The 650 X mr ATV is every bit as tough and polished as the big-bore 1000 X mr model, but its ability to seamlessly cross over from the mud to the trails adds to its versatility and makes it a whole new breed in the industry.

In addition to the Can-Am vehicles talked about here, we’ve also recently highlighted ride reviews of a couple of other vehicles on the Dirt Toys website.
