2008 Outlander 800 H.O. EFI

Outlander 800 H.O. EFI Red
Outlander 800 H.O. EFI Red

The recreation-utility category is a crowded one, but the Can-Am® Outlander™ stands out with more standard adrenaline than any other competitor. That’s because each Outlander model features the most powerful engine in its class, race-bred suspensions, the exclusive Visco-Lok front differential and other trick features.

As you’re cruising the trails or hauling a load with the Outlander 800H.O.EFI, it’s cool to know you’re riding a GNCC and Baja 1000 champion.

Outlander MAX model – Outlander MAX models are designed specifically for riding with a passenger. The longer vehicle wheelbase not only delivers rock solid stability and super predictable handling with a passenger, but one-up, too. Ability to swap seat and rack extension box without tools makes the MAX model extremely versatile.

Outlander XT model – The Outlander XT models include popular aftermarket additions, including winch with remote control and cast aluminum wheels. Carlisle ACT radial tires, bumpers and more are installed at the factory. Buyers opting for the XT model save more than $2,500 over purchasing and installing all these features separately. Plus, these items are covered by the factory warranty.

NEW for 2008

  • New EFI calibration improves fuel consumption by 11% over 2007 model
  • Visco-Lok features a new quicker engagement
  • New multi-function full digital gauge
  • Restyled painted steel rims
  • Rear fascia, taillight and regulator cover
  • Redesigned CVT compartment for better sealing against water
  • More comfortable handgrips
  • 500 lbs. (227 kg) additional winch capacity (now 3,000 lbs/1,361 kg) on XT models

OutlanderTM 800H.O. EFI Highlights

  • Race-proven with GNCC and Baja 1000 championships
  • 800cc Rotax® EFI V-twin engine is the most powerful in the industry
  • Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI™) rear suspension with no scrub, 75% fewer moving parts
  • Automatic progressively locking Visco-Lok‡ front differential
  • Lightweight, race-proven double A-arm front suspension
  • Get-on-and-go continuously variable transmission (CVT)

Outlander 800H.O. EFI Key Features

Rotax 800H.O. V-Twin engine – The most powerful engine in the ATV industry. Features an 80º V-twin engine electronic fuel injected, liquidcooled with single overhead cam, and four valves per cylinder. Downdraft 46 mm throttle body with progression system ensure precise control at low speeds, like when rock crawling. EFI system optimizes performance, including easy starts with no choke and automatic adjustments for altitude and air temperature.

Visco-Lok Front Differential – Progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100% with no rev or speed limiter. New calibration for V-twin models engages sooner. Can-Am exclusive.

Trailing Torsional Independent (TTI) Rear Suspension – Trailing arm design provides more control and stability, especially in rough terrain, by eliminating scrub. Wheels move rearward as they move up and down producing a smoother ride than the competition, and does not steer from the rear. Plus, TTI has 75% fewer parts than competitive designs and significantly decreases tire wear

Double A-arm front suspension – Precision and control is the focus of this proven set-up. Reduces bump steer and steering effort. Forged aluminum upper A-arm and forged aluminum mounts reduce weight.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) frame – Rather than the common tubular box, the SST frame is a single spar that is lightweight, yet strong. It contributes to the Outlander’s benchmark power-to-weight ratio and low centre of gravity. And the unique design enables the ATV to “ski” over obstacles.

NEW! Multi-function digital gauge – New gauge is easy to read with even more functions, including:

  • Digital speedometer
  • Digital tachometer
  • Bar graph RPM
  • Numerical RPM
  • Odometer
  • Trip meter
  • Diagnostic center
  • Gear position
  • Hour meter
  • Engine hour meter
  • 4x4 indicator
  • Temperature/Engine lights
  • Electronic fuel gauge
  • Low fuel light
  • Auto shut off after 15 minutes
  • High/low beam indicator

NEW! Painted steel rims – for a more high-tech style 26-inch (66cm) Badlands radial tire – Lightweight, great handling on base model 650 and 800

NEW! Rear fascia, tail light and regulator cover – For a more finished appearance; protects rear wire harness, connectors

Inboard disc brake – Unique design reduces unsprung weight and helps centralize masses for more responsive handling. Also better protects against mud and debris.

Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) – Industry’s first standard anti-theft device. Electronic code in key must match code in ECU to start.

Front and rear steel racks – 100-pound (45 kg) capacity in front, 200 pounds (90 kg) in back.

Outlander MAX Features

Longer vehicle wheelbase – The passenger rides well in front of the rear axle for rock-solid stability and super predictable handling.

Stadium-style seating – The passenger rides above the driver, stadium-style, so they can see down the trail.

Passenger comfort features – A well-padded active backrest moves with rider. Raised footrests and multi-position handholds add comfort.

Convertible Rack System (CRS) – The passenger seat can be removed and replaced with a rack-extension/totable cargo box in just seconds, without tools. BRP offers several accessories, such as a cargo box and touring box that interface seamlessly with the CRS system.
