Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) is enhancing its side-by-side vehicle (SSV) range in 2017 with the addition of the new Can-Am Defender MAX DPS. This innovative SSV has been designed to combine the comfort, control and power of the original Can-Am Defender with the ability to carry six passengers, providing a larger versatile workhorse vehicle that can handle the rigours of multiple terrains and applications.
The unit is powered by either the 50-hp HD8 or 72-hp HD10 Rotax V-Twin engine. Both have been designed with work in mind by Rotax’s engineers and offer the user the right amount of torque, performance and power when riding the trails or towing and hauling goods.
This latest addition to the Defender line-up features a new high rigidity chassis made from high-strength low alloy (HSLA) grade steel, which ensures the SSV has a solid design that allows it to handle the strain of heavy loads easily.
The Defender MAX DPS has also been fitted with lightweight cast-aluminium wheels and Maxxis big horn tyres, which allow it to respond effectively to rugged terrains, from rocky assents to boggy fields and marshland. The vehicle’s driver and passengers will be seated on its Dual VERSAPRO bench seat, with a hardwearing vinyl cover, which has been inspired by modern pick-up trucks, and features profiled corners to improve the entry and exit of the cab.
The combination of Double A-arm front and Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension, Visco-Lok front differential and Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) assist in providing the user with an easy to handle SSV.
Riders will benefit from the Can-Am Defender MAX DPS’ highly durable cargo box, which has a 454kg load capacity and can easily be divided up to suit the user’s requirements using the integrated recesses in the bed. The unit has a LinQ quick attach accessory system that offers adaptable cargo hauling options and works with numerous Can-Am accessories.
In addition, the vehicle’s cabin has a total storage capacity of 42.1-litres for miscellaneous items such as small tools, mobiles and keys.
Additional features on the SSV include an easy to read multi-functional gauge, providing riders with everything they need to know, from diagnostics information to miles travelled. The unit also has a 140W output from four 35W reflectors, a 40-litre fuel tank and an integrated front steel bumper and central skid plate to protect the vehicle when working.
The Can-Am Defender MAX DPS is maintenance-free for one year, 1865-miles (3000km) or 200-hours. For more information, visit www. brp.com or contact your local Can-Am off-road dealer.
Prices start from £10,295 ex VAT for the Can-Am Defender MAX DPS model.
