New Outlander from Can-Am

Can-Am will be introducing a new version of the Outlander ATV for 2018. The Mossy Oak Hunting Edition 1000R will come equipped with options that not only make it well suited for fall hunting trips, but on-farm chores as well.

To start with, it gets a camouflage paint scheme that gives it its name along with the brand’s XT options package that is already popular with buyers. The unique suspension geometry gives this model 1 inch (2.5 centimetres) more ground clearance, and stiffer springs give it better ride performance on rough terrain. The suspension A-arms are protected by a light-weight aluminum skid plate. All of that rides on 26-inch radial tires.

Hunters (even those who may need to thin out the gopher population in a farm field) will appreciate the Kolpin 6.0 gun boot that attaches to an integrated mount on the ATV.

There’s also a redesigned seat for improved rider comfort.

The prevent anyone from firing up the 89 horsepower 976 CC, eight-valve V-twin Rotax and driving away with your Outlander, Can-Am claims to be the first brand to offer a digitally encoded security system theft deterrent feature.

For those cold weather excursions, the Mossy Oak Hunting edition also gets heated grips and throttle to help keep the operator’s hands warm.
