Can-Am has completely redesigned the Maverick, beginning with the driver. The result is a revolutionary machine that keeps the seating position low, keeping you connected with the machine. However, there’s no sacrifice on ground clearance (up to 15 inches), so you can keep the thrill intensity high.

The Maverick X3 sports a turbocharged Rotax® ACE engine capable of delivering 154 hp at 7,500 RPM. It can go 0-60 MPH in under five seconds. The engine utilizes three large intakes to ensure that the powerful engine never runs out of air. Can-Am’s Tri-Mode DPS system and Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) keep you in control with excellent handling.

The Maverick X3 needs a capable suspension to match its engine, and the X3 delivers. The TTX suspension has 20 inches of travel, and the top model features a trailing arm reminiscent of high-speed trophy trucks. It includes FOX 2.5 Podium Piggyback shocks.

The Maverick X3 comes in three models:

  • Maverick X3
  • Maverick X3 X ds
  • Maverick X3 X rs

There are some significant upgrades available with the higher models. For example, the X3 X rs includes a 72″ width, a first for a factory side-by-side.
