Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr ATV family
Features and Benefits
ROTAX V-TWIN 1000
At the core of the Outlander rests a dominant 80º 976cc liquid-cooled Rotax V-Twin power plant that produces an industry-leading* 82 horsepower and a whopping 17 percent more power than any competitive ATV in the market. With an unmatched power-to-weight ratio, 65.1 lbs.-ft. of torque and electronic fuel injection (46mm throttle body), the single overhead cam engine is as efficient and refined as it is raw and invigorating. Regardless of temperature or altitude, EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times.
Despite its unprecedented performance levels, the eight-valve engine remains controllable and offers useable power for a wide array of riders and situations. Progressive throttle control means the power remains manageable in slow-speed circumstances or during a flat-out sprint.
DUAL-ROOM, NO-TOOLS AIR BOX
The Outlander 1000 X mr air box is placed at a higher and more centralized location for filtering and processing air. The no-tools air box features a dual-room design that improves the air filtration process and the quality of air by capturing dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in another section before it sends the air to the engine. The air intake is also higher in the frame to improve the machine’s capabilities in the mud and water. Accessing the filter for maintenance and inspection only requires the removal of the seat, console plastic and exterior push plate. The air filter is securely attached to the air box housing with a screw-on system and push plate that work in tandem to create a tight seal.
MUD-CALIBRATED CVT TRANSMISSION WITH MUD-READY COVER
The CVT system improves the transmission performance in wet terrain and conditions with its secure, 13-bolt sealing system. A dedicated drain plug is built into the cover and easily accessible if the need ever arises to remove water from the CVT housing. The CVT intake is at a higher location in the chassis for optimal performance in wet riding conditions. Automatic transmission with standard engine braking featuring high, low, park, neutral and reverse is also included.
INTEGRATED CVT INTAKE AND EXHAUST SYSEM
BRP has made sure that critical components like the CVT intake, 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 and high above the muddy, wet conditions below.
LARGE, RELOCATED RADIATOR
Located on the front rack, the larger radiator on the Can-Am Outlander X mr 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 intake, 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.
HIGH-GRADE EXHAUST AND SILENCER
The Outlander has a durable end cap/cover on its silencer to contribute to the exhaust’s upper-class appearance. The system remains true to the Can-Am tradition of producing a throaty and impressive exhaust note, yet adheres to strict dB and emissions standards.
SST G2 FRAME
The Outlander 1000 X mr uses the next generation and industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) frame and uses the 59-inch wheelbase of the Outlander MAX platform.
Introduced for the 2012 model year, the welded-steel frame incorporated new processes and exclusive geometry for increased structural integrity, improved durability and precision handling. The more efficient SST design offers increased strength compared to a traditional tubular steel chassis, a lower center of gravity, better handling and requires far less components, materials and welds.
The frame uses 16 percent less parts, is more durable, can accept more than two times greater force and has twice the torsional stiffness of the original chassis it replaced.
TRI-MODE DYNAMIC POWER STEERING (DPS)
The Can-Am Tri-Mode DPS system is outfitted with three separate selectable levels of steering assistance: Minimum, Medium or Maximum. Dynamic Power Steering provides variable steering assistance no matter what mode the rider chooses for the terrain. The system is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. All DPS-equipped models also come with the Visco-Lok QE.
QE stands for quicker engagement. All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. It 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. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differentials, does not have a speed or rev limiter.
DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION WITH DIVE-CONTROL GEOMETRY
The front suspension features a dive-control and anti-kickback geometry that positions the pivot points in space instead of simply adding stiffer shocks and springs. The geometry also inspires confidence-reducing kickback to the operator by locating the knuckle in the wheel. This front suspension gives the Outlander improved ride quality and comfort without hampering handling.
Five-way preload shocks that offer more than an inch of additional suspension travel for both trail comfort and aggres- sive riding situations. Front-end suspension travel is 9 inches (22.9 cm).
TRAILING TORSIONAL INDEPENDENt (TTI) REAR SUSPENSION
Unique to Can-Am and inspired by trophy trucks, the proven Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension offers increased rigidity, improved suspension travel at 9.3 inches (23.6 cm) and includes a removable external sway bar. The TTI, which offers up to 75 percent less moving parts than competitive systems, was designed to eliminate tire scrub and camber changes when the suspension moves up and down. This setup improves ride quality and suspension travel, keeps the ATV in a straight line and requires less steering adjustments than competitive models. Lower pivot points provide geometric squatting for improved traction and the transfer of power to the ground as well as a slightly different feel compared to previous Outlanders.
AIR CONTROL SUSPENSION WITH FOX AIR ASSIST HPG SHOCkS
Via an onboard compressor, the industry-exclusive ACS system adjusts the front and rear high-pressure gas FOX Air assist shocks to six rider-selectable preload levels. This allows the suspension of the X mr to be adjusted on-the-fly depending on terrain or vehicle load. It also comes with a hose that can be used to fill tires or other accessories while out on the trail.
214MM DISC BRAKES WITH TWIN-PISTON CALIPERS
The 2014 Outlander 1000 family features outboard hydraulic disc brakes. The front setup uses large 214mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power. At the rear, the models use a single twin-piston caliper and 214mm hydraulic disc brake that is located in the right, rear wheel.
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.
STANDARD SKID PLATE
The high-strength skid plate is made from proven materials and is designed for supreme protection and has the ability to slide over certain obstacles.
UPDATED 3-D ANALOG / DIGITAL GAUGE PACKAGE
The enhanced 3-D analog / digital gauge package has been upgraded over the base model to include high-grade instrumentation and more visual clarity. This includes an analog tachometer and speedometer combined with an advanced digital information center.
OUTLANDER X MR-SPECIFIC GRAPHICS
The Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr wears either a black-and-yellow graphics scheme with white highlights and sponsor logos or the optional NEXT G-1 Vista camouflage finish. A premium, embroidered gripper seat cover is designed to integrate seamlessly with the plastic and graphics for both a custom look and feel.
MUD-RIDING FOOT PEGS
The Can-Am Outlander 800R 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.
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.
HANDLEBAR WIND DEFLECTORS
To match the X mr ATV’s racing heritage and competitive nature, color-matched handlebar wind deflectors were added.
The X mr package provides a more-powerful magneto with 625 watts of power output.
Mudguards run on the wheel wells to complete the premium look and give the rider further protection from the mud.
FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS
Rugged front and rear bumpers protect this powerful mud machine in the toughest of conditions.
HIGH-STRENGtH, MULTI-FUNCTION RACK WITH INNOVATIVE AND INDUSTRY-EXCLUSLVE LINQ SYSTEM
Even with its mud-inspired format, this Outlander can tote 200 pounds (90kg) on its high-strength, multi-function rear rack. LinQ system accessories will fit as well.
WATER-RESISTANT REAR STORAGE BOX
A huge 5.7-gallon (21.4-liter) rear storage box offers industry-leading cargo capacity and is located beneath the rear cargo rack. The more-convenient location means riders can access the water-resistant, sealed storage box even when the rear cargo rack is loaded.
1,300-POUND TOWING CAPACITY
The Outlander X mr offers a sizeable, 1,300-pound towing capacity and a 2-inch receiver hitch as standard equipment.
EASY ACCESS FOR MAINTENANCE
The Can-Am Outlander 1000 X mr has a maintenance-friendly design. The battery is beneath the seat to offer easier access and improved protection. The rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter and relays are also conveniently located under the seat.
230-WATT LIGHTING FROM HEADLIGHTS
On high beam, the twin 60-watt reflectors and dual 55-watt projectors give the Outlander 230 watts of visual clarity. The Outlander 1000 family features the most lighting output of any ATV in the industry.
The taillights offer a stylish design and increased visibility for trail riding.
LARGER FUEL TANK
The Outlander has a capacity of 5.4 gallons (20.5 liters), which means one can ride longer.
3,000-POUND WARN WINCH
A 3,000-pound WARN winch w/ wireless remote and integrated storage can aid you in your conquest of the mud.
