Valcourt, Québec, August 1, 2008 – Can-Am™ announced today the release of its 2009 DS 450TM EFI ATV, complete with two new racing-specific packages. Returning for 2009 is the ultra-potent 2009 Can-Am DS 450 EFI ATV. The base model gets updates and two exciting models, the DS 450 X mx and DS 450 X xc models, also join the line-up. Can-Am now boasts the most race-ready 450 sport ATV line in the industry. All models get power from a proven Rotax® engine. And the ultra-light weight comes from cutting-edge computer design and the most revolutionary thinking in the sport ATV world.

It is still the benchmark for performance, handling and control – on the track and on the trail – thanks to the Rotax power, low weight, centralized mass, low unsprung weight, and fully-adjustable sport-tuned suspension.

“By releasing the DS 450 X mx and xc, we redefine the factory and amateur ATV racer relationship,” said Yves Leduc, Vice-President and General Manager, Can-Am Division. "The DS 450 continues to evolve and the base model was the perfect starting point for the two most race-ready sport packages in the industry.”
