Can-Am Maverick X ds TURBO

The horsepower wars are really beginning to heat up. Can-Am was the first OEM into the triple digits with the 101HP Maverick. Polaris responded with the 107HP RZR XP1K, and then this year upped the RZR 1000 to 110HP with refinements to the cams and pistons. Not satisfied with being in second place, Can-Am has now leaped way out in front with the addition of a turbocharged Maverick. The addition of the air pump and a host of other refinements to the 976cc V-twin engine have resulted in an eye popping 121HP.

The new Maverick X ds will be available in the traditional 2-seat model, and also as a 4-seat Maverick MAX. In order to handle the additional power, the clutching system was completely redesigned (a traditional Maverick weak spot). Air flow to the clutch and belt has also been significantly increased in order to help keep belt temperatures in check.

The new Maverick X ds is available in a base model sporting 101HP, or you can upgrade to the turbocharged model with 121HP
