2010 Can-Am model information releasd

Recommended Posts

2010 Can-Am model information releasd, full info available on their HSOforum. Looks like Can-Am made alot of positive changes, although with more features comes an even higher MSRP over past years.

A few Highlights. way too much to list.

Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)-Can-Am introduces its advanced power steering system on all Outlander XT models, the Outlander MAX Ltd models and the Renegade X xc. DPS comes with two rider selectable modes (“Min” and “Max”) for more or less steering assist that is selectable by the rider for preference or terrain – an industry-exclusive feature. The Can-Am DPS has a quicker response to steering torque input than other power steering systems on the market, and it has more kickback damping than the competition without sacrificing essential feedback. In short: Less kickback, more feedback. And you can be assured the high-capacity, fade-resistant 50-amp motor means

the steering assist level will never change no matter how hard you use it – unlike some competition’s systems that fade with constant heavy use. If you need more convincing our system stands up to whatever the trail bring, Can-Am racers have already proven DPS in the gruelling GNCC race series.

Air-Controled Suspension (ACS)-The 2010 Can-Am Outlander MAX LTD line comes equipped with the industry’s first air-controlled suspension. The ACS adjusts the rear high-pressure gas Fox Racing Shox-built suspension to six rider-selectable levels depending on the trail conditions or rider preference. This allows the LTD to maintain handling characteristics even when fully loaded. The ACS air compressor also comes with a hose that can be used to fill tires while out on the trail. In addition to the Outlander MAX 800R EFI LTD, Can-Am now offers a Outlander MAX 500 EFI LTD option.

Visco-Lok QE-All DPS-equipped models also come standard with Visco-Lok QE, which engages the Can-Am-exclusive Visco-Lok progressively locking front differential even quicker – as soon as there is a speed difference between the two front wheels. This is the only fully-locking front differential in the industry that has no speed-limiting drawback.

D.E.S.S. Expands – All Can-Am Outlander ATVs now have the industry-exclusive D.E.S.S. security system. The acronym stands for Digitally Encoded Security System, which means only the owner’s key can start the ATV. With D.E.S.S., the ATV will not start by any other means other than its matched key.

that new renegade XC with the beadlock wheels looks awesome. and 71hp to boot. a little on the spendy side at $12k though.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
