2015 Can-Am Maverick Turbo Review
Recently was invited out to southern California to test drive the new 2015 Can-Am Turbo Charged Maverick 1000 in the famous Glamis Sand Dunes. Having worked with for many years, I (Shawn Hess) jumped at the opportunity to test drive Can-Am Maverick Turbo.

2013 Can-Am DS 450 X MX Review and pro motocross racer, Keith Little had the opportunity to test the Can-Am DS450 X MX sport quad. The 2013 Can-Am DS450 lineup features three DS450 models with the standard model along with a cross country (xc) and motocross (mx) versions, and since we had multi-time AMA ATV champion, Keith Little, with us we chose to test out the updated Can-Am DS 450 X mx model.

2013 Can-Am Commander 1000 XT Review
In 2011, Can-Am entered the side by side market full speed ahead with the release of the 2011 Can-Am Commander, and for 2013, Can-Am added the option of Dynamic Power Steering to the CanAm Commander line-up.

2014 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X xc SxS / UTV Test Drive Review
Can Am initially introduced the Can-Am Maverick 1000 R SxS in late 2012 with the release of the 101 horsepower sport SxS / UTV. With its ever growing popularity, Can-Am has expanded its line of CanAm Maverick 1000 SxS / UTV models to include the Can-Am Maverick 1000R MAX four seater and Can-Am Maverick 1000R X xc DPS SxS / UTV for the woods.

2013 Can-Am Outlander MAX Two Up Utility ATV Review
CanAm hasn’t left anything to the imagination with their 2013 line of Can-Am Outlander MAX two up utility ATV models, and for 2013, the Can-Am Outlander MAX comes in the DPS, XT, XT-P and Limited model.  These ATV’s are arguably the best two up models produced and we had a chance to get up close and personal with the all-new 2013 Can-Am’s.

2013 Can-Am Maverick 1000 SxS / UTV Test Drive Review
Just over two years ago, Can-Am entered the SxS market with the Commander 800 and 1000 SxS / UTV, which is a great all-round SxS, but for 2013, Can-Am has raised the bar in performance with the release of the high performance Can-Am Maverick 1000R and X RS SxS / UTV models.

2012 Can-Am Outlander 1000 & 800R Utility ATV Test Ride Review was recently invited out to sunny North Carolina were we would have a chance to check out the new 2012 Can-Am ATV models including the new Outlander 1000 and 800R. The test facility would consist of rugged logging trails, tight woods, and open sections at Brushy Mountain Motorsports Off-Road Park. Can-Am set up stations in which we had around an hour to spend with each model to test ride and get to know each vehicle

2011 Can-Am Commander 1000 XT SxS / UTV Test Ride Review
The competitive world of the Side-by-Side market has been increasingly growing and sending manufacturers into a frenzy with upgrades and more power in order to be top dog. While relatively new to the UTV market, Can-Am has already raised the bar and set a new standard with its release of the 2012 Can-Am Commander 1000 Limited

2011 Can-Am Commander 1000 XT SxS / UTV Test Ride Review
Since the release of the Can-Am Commander Side-by-Side line in 2010, Can-Am has provided consumers with several option packages that offer different engine sizes, suspension packages and a variety of options. The manufacturer has raised the bar in the UTV market and we always enjoy being invited to press events to test out the latest units, but occasionally, we are given a Commander 1000 XT to test out for an extended period of time and that’s when the real fun starts for us

2011 CanAm Commander 800R, 1000 X & XT SxS / UTV Ride Review
Always an innovator in the ATV industry, Can-Am/BRP has once again stepped up and raised the bar by producing a new Side-by-Side line that blows the competition away. With more horsepower, incredible handling, and surprising comfort, the Can-Am Commander line is very impressive indeed

Black Bear Hunting with a Can-Am Commander 1000 XT SxS / UTV
We met up with former Pro GNCC ATV Racer, Brandon Sturdivant in the West Virginia Mountains to go black bear hunting. We brought along our Can-Am Commander 1000 XT to help in the hunt.

2010 BRP Can-Am Outlander & Renegade ATV Test Ride / Review
For 2010, Can Am has again brought some interesting changes to its model line up. Offerings still abound for the MX and XC crowd whether your intended riding consists of racing or trail riding and what better place to host the press intro then Carolina Adventure World located in South Carolina. With MX tracks and miles of trails, we would get to check out the updates and new additions to various models that ranged from cosmetic to industry leading advancements.

2009 CanAm DS450, DS450X MX & XC ATV Test Ride / Review
For 2009 Can-Am expanded its DS450 offering to include three models with the base model DS450 along with the DS450X XC and DS450X MX models. These two new racing specific packages fine tune the machines to the particular type of racing they will be used for, so we took each of them for a test ride

2008 BRP Can-Am DS450 ATV Ride Test & GNCC Race Review
In 2008, BRP Can-Am released the all-new DS 450 Sport ATV, and the new DS450 was unlike any other 450 sport ATV with many brand new technologies introduced to the sport ATV marker, so we put it to the test in a GNCC Series race to see how well it would hold up to 2 hours of racing

2008 BRP CanAm Outlander 500 Utility ATV
Former Pro GNCC ATV racer, Jeff Stoess, race test the Can-Am Outlander 500 Utility ATV, but with his over 20 years of ATV riding experience, it didn't take Jeff more than the first turn to begin to open up the throttle on the Can-Am and begin his charge on the Outlander 500, and provide a full review on the ATV

2008 CanAm DS450, DS90, & Renegade X-Package ATV
CanAm intially announced the DS450 & DS90 in June, but in August CanAm revealed their all new X-Package models, which come in a black and have many additional add-ons. These ATVs are designed to be race ready off the showroom floor, so here is the complete Review!

2008 BRP CanAm DS450 Sport ATV
The CanAm DS450 Sport ATV is not a redesign of an existing machine. The design of this quad was done from the ground up by a group of engineers starting with a clean slate. Each part was reevaluated, and if there was a better way to do it, it was done. The result is a machine that has more radical design changes than any ATV since they decided to add another tire onto the three wheelers. Check out the full Review!
