Forest and forest specialist: the ATV Can-Am Outlander model year 2021 from BRP
Hilden, Germany / Valcourt, Quebec, February 12, 2021 – At BRP (TSX: DOO; NASDAQ: DOOO) users have always been the focus when it comes to usability, power and vehicle design. Every detail – from capacity and reliability to performance and comfort – is fine-tuned and tested under extreme conditions. Can-Am’s off-road vehicles are designed for use under extreme conditions, such as on muddy slopes and sandy surfaces. The Can-Am Outlander is therefore perfect for use even in difficult-to-access terrain in woods and forests, as well as for hunting.
Developed for operation in difficult terrain, the Can-Am Outlander 450-570 is prepared for any kind of work. With its all-wheel drive, the Can-Am Outlander effortlessly takes people and material into the most remote areas, where conventional off-road vehicles and pick-ups have long been unable to get through. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) of the Can-Am Outlander has an extremely low L-gear (reduction ratio), which allows a higher workload and ensures a smoother start.
Can-Am Outlander 450-570: powerful performance for every purpose
The Can-Am Outlander 450-570 is available in different versions: Customers can choose between a 28 kW (38 PS) single-cylinder Rotax 450 or a SOHC-Rotax 570-V-Twin with 35 kW (48 PS). The proven Rotax motors offer unmatched power and performance and are reliable and efficient at the same time. The Can-Am Outlander can easily move heavy loads. With a standard towing hitch and up to 750 kg pulling force, it can handle all tasks in the forest and reliably transports even heavy game and equipment. The Can-Am Outlander 1000 models can do even more here, the 6 × 6 variant a proud 907 kg.
Basically, the Can-Am off-road vehicles can be modified for any purpose. For example, the Can-Am Outlander 450-570 can be perfectly customized according to your own needs: from the game carrier to the front cable winch for rescue to a safe rifle holder. There are also numerous ways to expand the storage space of the Can-Am Outlander for tools and materials. Can-Am offers an extensive accessories catalog here.
Big tank for range
Maneuvering on difficult surfaces is no problem for the Can-Am Outlander 450-570 – thanks to its three-stage dynamic power steering (DPS) for light, direct, speed-dependent steering assistance with more power in the lower speed range as well as easier steering at high speeds and an excellent steering feel for the driver. There are three modes for even better customization of the DPS.
The ATV has a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The driver simply selects the gear and accelerates – the Can-Am Outlander then always delivers exactly as much power as is needed. A calibrated engine brake ensures improved handling in hilly terrain.
The Can-Am Outlander 450-570 has a large 20.5 liter tank and an economical Rotax engine. This means that extensive areas can also be explored.
Even more endurance: the Outlander 6 × 6
The Can-Am Outlander 6 × 6 is available with 450, 650 or 1000 Rotax engines from 38 to 82 hp. Fully equipped for the toughest operating conditions, the Can-Am Outlander 6 × 6 has a permissible trailer load of up to 907 kg and a loading area with a payload of 318 kg. With the dynamic three-stage power steering (DPS) the driver is assisted in steering, adapted to the speed of the vehicle.
A new ergonomically shaped control unit has a heated handle with four different temperature settings. Thanks to its powerful 1.3 t winch, the Can-Am Outlander 6 × 6 Pro supports the recovery of game and wood so vigorously that additional manpower is superfluous. These technical features, together with the extremely comprehensive selection of Can-Am accessories, make the Can-Am Outlander 6 × 6 Pro the ultimate work tool in any terrain.
Which type of approval is the right one?
BRP Can-Am delivers its off-road vehicles ex works as international models, which require LoF approval for road traffic, or as T models. According to EU directive 167/2013 for agricultural and forestry vehicles, for example, the ABS models in class T3b can drive at a maximum speed of 105 km / h (60 km / h without ABS). These models can be recognized by the “T” after them in the model name, such as B. Outlander 450 T. Vehicles of class T3b can be street legal without any further modifications.
LoF approval: the best choice for forests and forests
As an alternative to the T approval, a LoF conversion can be carried out. For vehicles with LoF approval, there are no restrictions whatsoever in terms of performance or top speed. This makes sense especially if you want to move between two unconnected hunting grounds with the Outlander without restrictions. Vehicles with LoF conversion are only permitted in Germany and are registered as tractors. This means you benefit from a lower tax bracket.
For this purpose, the authorized Can-Am dealers make modifications to the vehicles, such as connecting the mandatory rear fog light. Once the conversion has been completed, the vehicle is approved by a testing organization such as TÜV. The LoF conversion is possible for different vehicles. The authorized Can-Am specialist dealers advise on this and recommend the appropriate conversion.
