The cockpit and control layout on the Maverick is compact, easy to read, and functional. Our test sessions would include some time aboard the newest 2-seat Maver- ick 1000R, as well as a trip through the dunes and trails surrounding this ride area, aboard one of heir fully cus- tomized RS “X” models. First Things First Since we would be rid- ing these machines in a wide variety of desert, dune and rocky mountain trails, (which, coincidentally, the Logandale A lot of thought went into the overall shape and design of the Can Am’s steering wheel and speedo/tach/warning light system trail system has plenty of) we would be able to put in some quality seat time aboard these prototype test units prior to their official launch for the 2013 production line. Motor Voter The big news for perfor- mance fans is that Can-Am is using its proven Rotax® 1000R V-Twin engine, to pow- er this beast. It has been fine tuned for even more and bet- ter powerboat than its Can-Am Commander, which uses the same general engine design. DIRT ILLustrated \\\\\\ Vol. 1 + Issue 4 + Page 46 Now, the revamped big twin motor is rated at 101-horse- power, “Due mostly to refine- ments in tuning and engine development,” says the Can-Am engineers. The new 976cc, 101- hp Rotax 1000R V-Twin engine is, says Can-Am engineers, “The most powerful side-by-side engine in the industry”. This liquid-cooled, four- stroke, single-overhead-cam power plant features four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 54mm Bosch throttle body and two VDO Seimens fuel injectors.
