Can-Am Outlander 800R X mr

MSRP: $15,399

Working closely with Gorilla Axle, a Louisiana company known for its exceptional mud-riding and racing machines, Can-Am created what could well be the ultimate unstoppable mud quad. First, there’s the 59-inch wheelbase of the 800 MAX platform—when riding over mud holes, at least one of the wheels is bound to grip onto something. Can-Am also relocated the air intake to a snorkel in front of the steering column and, forfeiting cargo space, placed the radiator where the front rack would normally be. The wheels boast 30-inch Gorilla Axle Silverback tires all around, and clearance is adjustable via the front and rear suspension. In the unlikely event this machine does get stuck, it comes with a BRP XL3000 winch. Dual-mode power steering is another nicety.

Kawasaki introduced a power-steering-assisted version of its Brute Force 750. Other than the EPS and the few extra pounds the hardware adds, it’s essentially the same machine as the non-EPS version. The double cradle, steel frame, adjustable front and back suspension, tweaked power house and more robust one-inch steel tubing on the cargo racks are some of the features the EPS version shares with the standard 750i.

Polaris focused on modifications to its quads this year. With both the Sportsman 800 EFI and the Big Boss 6x6, for example, the radiators have been repositioned three inches higher and mounted at an angle to reduce mud and debris accumulation. As well, the Sportsman 800 EFI’s engine has been moved back three inches to improve manoeuvrability.
