The Can-Am® Outlander™ MAX™ 800 H.O. EFI Ltd model sets the benchmark for ATV touring machines. It has been equipped so one or two riders can explore the outdoors in comfort and luxury, with features such as powerful Rotax® engine, built-in GPS receiver, fender mud guards and steel racks. It’s also made to turn heads with a refined styling package.

Like all Outlander MAX models, the Ltd model is 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 MAX 800H.O. EFI Ltd 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.

Garmin Quest color GPS receiver – 256-color high resolution display with preloaded world map and its 115 megabyte memory. The battery charges when the receiver is on the quad and can be removed and run on its own battery. A special flexible cover for protecting the docking station is standard.

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

Luxury Styling – Steel Grey metallic paint, silver seat trim, chrome muffler outlet, full fender mud guards, handlebar guards and comfort grips.

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 Benefits

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.
