All New Maverick Sport!

Can-Am, upholding its promise to refine its side-by- side vehicle family by the year 2020,
continues its aggressive approach in the off-road market with the introduction of the all-new
Maverick Sport family. This true 60-in. (152.4 cm) class performance side-by- side vehicle arrives
with both Maverick X3 and Maverick Trail undertones and, of course, innovation to set it apart
from the competition. Arriving with the most desirable and adaptable width for off-road
environments, the Maverick Sport is engineered with a daring, precise and confident design to
better equip trail enthusiasts in their terrain-conquering adventures. This thrilling family of
Maverick side-by- side vehicles will tick the emotional needle further in the direction of pure
enjoyment — no matter the end use.

At its very soul, sits a sturdy, rear-mounted 976cc Rotax V-Twin mill, one that delivers torque,
proven reliability and the unique ability to simultaneously connect to the driver’s foot and smile
at the same time. Buyers can choose between an unflinching 75hp Rotax 1000 engine or the
intense 100hp Rotax 1000R. Large air intakes, an oversized radiator and a Donaldson airbox
come standard on both, but the 1000R variety includes the larger airbox from the Maverick X3,
a unique exhaust line and muffler, an additional CVT intake and the same CVT driven pulley
from the Maverick X3 for more dynamism.
Much like the Maverick Trail vehicles, the Maverick Sport family’s engine is mated to a CVT type
transmission with QRS (Quick Response System) that includes P/R/N/H/L ratios ideal for trail
performance. The CVT also features Electronic Belt Protection for peace of mind. A hardy gear-
on-gear rear differential and helical gear transmission is both durable and quiet.
The Maverick Sport DPS models have Dynamic Power Steering and selectable Sport and ECO
modes for precision control off-road. The package also includes a selectable 2WD / 4WD with
Visco-Lok† QE auto-locking front differential.


Utilizing the same, stable 90.6-in. (230.1 cm) wheelbase proven with the Maverick Trail family
vehicles, the Maverick Sport offers a spacious cockpit, enhanced ergonomics and better ride
qualities than the competition. Steadfast engineering resulted in a low seating and optimal
front-to- rear weight distribution to generate predictable handling and ample ground clearance
for a wide variety of terrain. A supple suspension setup, complete with a Double A-Arm front
suspension, Torsional Trailing Arm (TTA) rear suspension and FOX 2.0 Podium shocks, improves
the vehicle’s capabilities and handling without comprising comfort.
Recreational riders and performance enthusiasts each demand onboard storage and the
Maverick Sport side-by- side vehicles reward them with cleverly-placed stowage for gear and
supplies. A large tow rating and class-leading fuel tank means long excursions and weekend
getaways are commonplace.


All Maverick side-by- side vehicles are known for their spacious, well-designed cockpits that
come standard with low-stance ERGOPRINT seats. Onboard conveniences, integrated
ergonomic improvements, added protection, half doors and driver’s side adjustability heighten
the off-road driving experience and have set the bar for side-by- side vehicle comfort.
The new trail-friendly Maverick Sport family offers reduced maintenance intervals and a highly
durable chassis, but its overall design remains DIY friendly. The Can-Am Maverick Sport family
comes well equipped (starting at $14,699 USD / $17,899 CAD) from the factory, but with
roughly 140 Can-Am accessories, owners can outfit it to their liking. The Maverick Sport lineup
consists of three packages (Maverick Sport 1000 / Maverick Sport DPS 1000 / Maverick Sport
DPS 1000R). The vehicles are available in three color schemes: White (base 1000), Can-Am Red
(DPS 1000, DPS 1000R) and Sunburst Yellow (DPS 1000R).


The Maverick Sport side-by- side vehicles are designed to entertain the trail and desert rider
with impressive agility, off-road performance and all-around composition. To outperform the
competition, the Maverick Sport family supplies resilient power, reactive agility and precision
control. Two Rotax V-Twin engines supply the new Maverick Sport family more than enough
clout to impress in a wide variety of off-road conditions and terrain. Meticulous engineering
results in predictable and adaptable handling that requires minimal effort from the driver while
also offering a sizeable contact patch for optimal traction. Whether it’s a rebellious adventure
or a deliberate stroll through the pines, the Maverick Sport allows all forms of enthusiasts to
enjoy the journey. Call it the modern cure for the unadventurous.



– Sturdy Engine
The Maverick Sport vehicles are equipped with either a talented 75hp 976cc Rotax V-Twin
engine or, for additional performance, a revised 100hp 1000R option. To gain more
performance, the 1000R package wears a unique exhaust line and muffler for enhanced airflow,
wears an additional CVT air intake and also sports the driven pulley from the Maverick X3,
which gives it an additional 11 ft-lb. of torque and 25 extra horsepower.
The engines, optimized for sporty trail and desert situations, are placed in the rear of the
chassis to produce a quiet, cool ride for the occupants. Along with reduced vibration, each
power plant includes engine braking for enhanced control on the trail.
– A strategically placed and oversized air intake
Located on the right side of the vehicle behind the passenger seat near the cargo bed, the air
intake supplies the engines with clean, fresh air for optimal performance.
– Oversized radiator
A large radiator keeps the Maverick Sport side-by- side vehicles running at optimal
temperatures even in the most challenging terrain.
– Donaldson airbox
The Maverick Sport vehicles were outfitted with a proven Donaldson airbox to ensure the Rotax
engines are continuously receiving optimal amounts of cool, clean air. The Maverick Sport
1000R uses the same larger airbox from the Maverick X3 vehicle.
– Sturdy CVT QRS Transmission
We paired the sturdy engines with a stout transmission to ensure unmatched dependability and
toughness when the Maverick Sport vehicles take to challenging terrain. The CVT with QRS is
designed to provide smooth, precise power delivery as well as predictable deceleration. The
Maverick Sport DPS 1000R features an additional CVT intake to draw more air to the clutch.
The CVT was outfitted with appropriate ratios to deliver optimal torque for the Maverick Sport
family and include gear selections for P / R / N / H / L. The system includes integrated electronic
belt protection for reassurance out in the sticks. The gear-on- gear rear differential means
increased responsiveness and less required maintenance. The helical gear transmission,
combined with the CVT rearward location ensures a quieter environment for the occupants.

family to create the Maverick Sport. From the front fascia with the signature Can-Am LED
running lights (DPS package) to the rear cargo area and LED taillights, everything about the

– Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
All the Maverick Sport DPS models include the single-mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
system that is tuned for both low – and higher – speed trail riding. The integrated DPS improves
steering feel in slow-speed situations. The intelligent system automatically offers less assistance
at higher speeds and more assistance in technical terrain at low speeds.
