2013 Can-Am Outlander 650 X mr

Story By: Can-Am

The all-new Can-Am Outlander 650 X mr is the newest hero ATV for mud-riding enthusiasts, fusing proven design elements from the Outlander 650, the award-winning 1000 X mr and some specialty components of its own. The Outlander 650 X mr, which features a 51-inch wheelbase and Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 frame and chassis, will attract plenty of attention with a more compact design, mud-specific engineering and overall skill set. Using principles of design we call Geometric Contact Control, BRP engineers designed the Surround Spar Technology chassis to be able to deliver the hardcore performance the Can-Am brand is known for, yet enhance the overall comfort of the vehicle at all levels of riding. Diehard mud-riding enthusiasts can go straight from the showroom to frolicking at mud-riding parks and tackling trails with confidence. The addition of Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS™) and Visco-Lok‡ QE adds another level of superiority.

The robust 62-HP 650cc Rotax® V-Twin engine provides generous power for clawing through murky mud pits or throttling down a trail. A larger radiator sits in place of a 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 (in a snorkel-like setup) to keep mud and water out of important components to ensure the X mr keeps churning even in the worst conditions. New 28-inch Maxxis mud-specific tires, on 12-inch cast-aluminum wheels, feature an aggressive tread design for superior traction. The Outlander 650 X mr is completed with X-package graphics, aluminum foot pegs, and preload-adjustable mud shocks.

The 650 X mr is every bit as tough and polished as the big-bore 1000 X mr, but its ability to seamlessly cross over from the mud to the trails adds to its versatility and makes it a whole new breed in the industry.
