2017 Can-Am Commander 800R

/
BEST-IN-CLASS POWER AND VERSATILITY.

This versatile side-by-side features the essentials that changed the off-road landscape. Industry-leading performance, precision-engineered handling, and rider-focused design are all on display every time you hit the throttle.

Features

  • ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: Available in a 71-hp Rotax 800R liquid-cooled V-Twin engine with four valves per cylinder and single overhead camshafts featuring twin fuel injectors that optimize fuel delivery into the combustion chamber for powerful, yet precise performance.
  • INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITC): This electronic throttle-by-wire system works in conjunction with the 54mm Bosch∞ throttle body to produce smooth delivery, even if the driver's foot is bouncing due to the rough terrain. The iTC system detects unwanted bounces and filters the input. Comes with a progressive and sport mode.
  • TORSIONAL TRAILING ARM INDEPENDENT (TTI) REAR SUSPENSION: The only independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes, meaning the wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it. Reconfigured for improved traction and optimal transfer of power to the ground.
  • DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION WITH SWAY BAR: The Can-Am Commander's Double A-arm front suspension is designed with dive-control geometry that works to eliminate diving under heavy breaking and rough terrain. The front end features 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel and five-way preload-adjustable motion-control shocks.
  • 27-IN. MAXXIS† BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES ON 12-IN. WHEELS: The lightweight radial tires offer a smoother ride, predictable cornering and optimum climbing confidence. Installed on steel wheels.
  • DUAL-LEVEL CARGO BOX: The industry’s most versatile and usable cargo box design has a 600-lb (272 kg) cargo capacity, dual storage levels, anti-rust box and tilt-assist dumping. Cargo box with two levels separated by a removable, water-resistant panel that offers an upper and lower bed with their independent tailgate.
