can-am Maverick 1000R X RS Package
Outfitted with graphics, premium shocks, beadlock wheels and other custom features, the Maverick 1000R X rs will satisfy the appetite of any high-performance side-by-side enthusiast. Starting with the base Maverick 1000R, the X rs Package goes above and beyond the call of duty by offering the most highly advanced side-by-side piggyback shocks ever found on a stock side by side. Throw in dynamic racing-inspired graphics, lightweight 12-inch (30.5cm) aluminum beadlock wheels and other specialty add-ons and the 1000R X rs is as pleasing on the eye as it is on the trail.

FOX Podium X Performance RC2.5 piggyback shocks
Developed in collaboration with FOX, the high-grade FOX shocks make their first appearance on a factory-built side-by-side vehicle. The re-buildable shocks sit at all four corners and are fully adjustable for Dual-Speed Compression and rebound. The 2.5 Podium shocks offer a high-volume 6-inch piggyback oil reservoir and specially formulated oil for improved flow
and heat dissipation. Proven technologies such as upper and lower spherical bearing mounts, velocity-sensitive damping control and a high-flow piston, optimize performance in varying terrain. They are designed to be extremely durable with a hard-anodized 2.5-inch aluminum body, forged aluminum piggyback body cap and a 5/8-inch(16mm) hard chrome-plated,
heat-treated shaft. To maintain supreme control, the FOX shocks’ extension velocity after compression can be fine-tuned to optimize vehicle control.

12-inch Aluminum Beadlock Wheels
The Maverick 100R X rs has12-inch aluminum center-less, computer-optimized true beadlock wheels. This mechanical fastener makes it nearly impossible for the tire to break its bead from the wheel during heavy acceleration or cornering.

Analog / Digital Gauge
The gauge on the Maverick 1000R X rs has an upgraded gauge over the standard model. Featuring state-of-the-art instrumentation with an analog tachometer and speedometer combined with an advanced digital information center.

29.5-inch(75 cm) Longer Wheelbase
With 29.5-inch(75cm) longer wheelbase over the standard Maverick, the interior space of the rear cab was built to offer both comfortable and spacious seating area for two full-sized adults. The Maverick MAX has a total wheelbase measurement of 113.8 inches(289cm), also contributing to a more comfortable ride. Offers more room than other four-seater sport side-by-side — 6.4 in.(16.3cm) more than the Polaris RZR XP-4 900.

Ergonomics design for rear passengers comfort
The rear seats feature the same ergonomics as the front passenger seat, in terms of both lumbar and shoulder support as well and the overall seat design. The rear passenger area also includes a total of four handholds for the rear passengers. There is a grip bar on the center console for each passenger as well as an additional grab bar near the cage. The spacious rear section was also configured to improve the entry and exit of the vehicle. Full-length, easy-clip side nets can be opened with one hand and offer a clear line of sight for the rear passengers.

Stadium-style Rear Seats
Raised 3.5 inches(9cm) higher than the front seats, the rear passenger seating features stadium-style positioning for increasing passengers visibility while riding. This design element not only improves the rear passenger’s sight lines, but also helps create a more interactive environment.

The Maverick MAX 1000R will be available summer 2013.
