Mud-riding enthusiasts demand an ATV that not only dominates in the best mud-riding parks across North America, but looks impressive doing it. Replacing the successful Outlander 800R X mr, the all-new 2013 Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr is purpose-built to conquer every mud hole it encounters. With its menacing façade, innovative mud-specific setup and unequaled power, the 1000 X mr is as refined and it is tough.
The new Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 chassis, borrowed from the updated 2013 Outlander MAX line, enhances the 1000 X mr ATV’s comfort and performance levels. Dynamic Power Steering creates almost effortless handling, at any speed and in even the stickiest of situations. BRP engineers and designers worked with one of the most recognized names in ATV mud performance: Gorilla Axle. Its expertise in mud riding makes the Outlander 1000 X mr the ultimate in a mud machine. No matter if it’s for a recreational challenge or competitive racing, the 2013 Outlander 1000 X mr is built to win, and win over the mud crowd.
The new X mr uses the new Outlander MAX platform and long 59-inch wheelbase for proven performance in the deepest mud. The muscular, 82-HP 976cc Rotax® V-Twin engine supplies ample power for churning through the slop. We also use a new, larger radiator on the front rack, so it’s as high on the ATV as possible and out of the mud and water for optimal temperature control. The CVT intake, CVT exhaust and engine air intake are also located as high as possible in the machine to keep mud and water out of important components and to keep the X mr going even in the toughest conditions. Then Can-Am added a complete Air Controlled Suspension system with FOX shocks so riders can select a preferred ride height: higher for getting to the mud hole and lower for riding to and from the mud. Can-Am adds premium ITP wheels and 30-inch Gorilla Axle Silverback tires for a complete mud-riding package.
The new model year also brought other key updates compared to the previous generation X mr model. These changes include the redesigned X-package graphics and sponsor logos, reconfigured foot mounts, ITP SS wheel caps, analog / digital gauge package, as well as the optional NEXT G-1 Vista camouflage finish.

Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr Features and Benefits:
Relocated radiator //Located on the front of the ATV, the Can-Am Outlander X mr’s radiator ATV is kept out of the muddy water and wears a protective, vented cover, ensuring all-day rides in the deep mud.
Integrated CVT intake and exhaust system // BRP has made sure that critical components like the CVT exhaust and engine intake are located as high as possible on the ATV. We placed them in the pod directly in front of the handlebars, in a centralized location, to keep them from the muddy water as well.
14-inch (35.6cm) ITP cast-aluminum wheels // The tall, ITP cast-aluminum wheels and stylish SS wheel hubcap work in tandem to give the Outlander X mr an aggressive look.
30-inch (76.2cm) Gorilla Axle Silverback tires // The proven 30-inch Gorilla Axle Silverback tires were chosen for their exceptional mud-riding characteristics. Developed by Gorilla Axle for mud riding and racing, these tires have been tested in the deepest mud holes of east Texas and Louisiana. With a tall lug and aggressive tread pattern the tires offer superb mud performance, yet a smooth ride when traveling to the mud hole.
Outlander X mr-specific graphics // For 2013, the Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr wears an updated black-and-yellow graphics scheme with white highlights and sponsor logos. A premium, embroidered gripper seat cover is designed to integrate seamlessly with the plastic and graphics for both a custom look and feel. The 2013 X mr also comes with the optional NEXT G-1 Vista camouflage finish for the ultimate machine to take you to any hunting spot.
Mud-riding foot pegs // The Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr has two sets of foot pegs that offer maximum flexibility when riding in the ever-changing mud landscape. Raised, aggressive steel foot pegs reside in a more traditional spot, but the larger, rear foot platforms are flatter and angled to allow the rider to reposition his weight when the front end up floats up in deep mud holes.
Handlebar wind deflectors // To match the X mr ATV’s racing heritage and competitive nature, color-matched handlebar wind deflectors were added.
Aluminum taper-profile handlebar with square pad // Aluminum 6061-T6 taper-profile handlebars with square racing pad give this competition-ready ATV a look that’s both appropriate and comfortable.
Visco-Lok QE front differential // Progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differentials, does not have a speed or rev limiter.
More-powerful magneto // The X mr package provides a more-powerful magneto with 625 watts of power output.
Front and rear bumpers // Rugged front and rear bumpers protect this powerful mud machine in the toughest of conditions.
Rear MULTI-FUNCTION RACK // This Outlander can tote 200 pounds (90kg) on the back rack and is LinQ system compatible.
Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) // D.E.S.S., the ATV Industry’s first standard anti-theft device, requires an electronic code in the key to match a code in the vehicle in order to operate the vehicle.
