2015 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X ds First Ride

Can-Am answers the age old axiom, ’there’s no replacement for displacement’, by fitting a turbocharger to its sporty Maverick X ds side-by-side ($22,999). We romped around California’s adult-sized sandbox of Glamis to find out how it performs. In the side-by-side business bigger is most definitely better.

Honda’s Big Red side-by-side never lived up to its full potential. So just four years after its introduction, it’s being replaced with this: the Honda Pioneer 700.
