New Can-Am buggies launched in UAE
The ever-popular UAE off-roading scene is set to enjoy an adrenaline boost with the launch by MTM Powersports, part of the Al Masaood Group, of two new high-performance dune-bashers, the Limited Edition 2016 Can-Am Maverick X rs 1000R Turbo and the 2016 Can-Am Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo.
With this type of buggy, known as a Side by Side Vehicle (SSV), the launch this August of these two new high performance Can-Am models is set to shake up the local market. The importance of the UAE market to the maker of Can-Am SSVs, Canada-based Bombardier Recreational Products, was emphasized at the development stage of the Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo, which was specially tested in the demanding conditions that prevail in the Emirates’ desert region.
The two-seater Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo set new global standards when it became the first SSV to be fitted with a turbocharged engine and it is still the only turbocharged SSV proven in the harsh conditions of the UAE desert. The new 2016 model has been upgraded so that the engine now delivers a massive 131hp, a significant 10 HP increase over last year’s model.
The 2016 Can-Am Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo sets the standards in its class thanks to its superior build quality, best-in-class safety features and exhilarating performance and handling, all from just AED 96,500. Highlight features include a stronger roll cage, tougher suspension components, bead-lock wheels, sturdy supportive seats with real upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. This amazing SSV is also available in the 4-seater model, the Can-Am Maverick Max X ds 1000R Turbo.
Off-roaders looking to stand out from the crowd will particularly enjoy the race inspired Limited Edition Maverick X rs 1000R Turbo. Originally planned for release in the North American market only, strong customer demand has led to MTM Powersports bringing it to the UAE. This impressive SSV has all the great features of the X ds, plus specially tuned rear shocks for fast dune driving, a Yoshimura slip-on exhaust, 4-point safety harnesses and a tubular rear bumper, all from AED 101,000 for the two-seater version.
