Can-Am’s Past

Can-Am is a worldwide company that is a branch of another company known as Bombardier Recreational Products. That company was founded back in 1942 and was revolutionary in the powersports world. It made advancements such as the first successful creation and test of a snowmobile.

When Can-Am started, it focused solely on producing motocross dirt bikes. These models were designed for competition racing and offered features such as incredible ability and high-speed capacities. Many of the champions chose to use Can-Am bikes.

While the company saw great success with their two-wheeled vehicles, they wanted to expand out their product offering. They started making ATVs and applied their innovative mindset to their four wheeler models as well. In the late 1990s, they created ATV models with TTI rear suspension utilizing two independent pivot points. This had a significant impact on the four wheeler’s comfort on rugged terrain, allowing riders to conquer the dirt roads for longer before getting sore and tired.

The first Can-Am manufacturer-approved four wheeler able to handle two passengers arrived in 2002. It was designed to handle two riders without offering a reduced performance experience, making it easy for people to share their love of riding with their friends.

Then the most versatile Can-Am side-by-side was unveiled in 2010. Known as the Commander™, it runs off of an 85-hp Rotax 1000 V-Twin engine. It conquers difficult terrain with ease and comes with convenience features such as a dual-level cargo box.

Cam-Am may have started as simply a branch of a larger company producing only one product. But it didn’t take long for innovation, determination, and forward thinking to propel the company into new markets and develop a name for itself.

Can-Am’s Present

Can-Am today is a worldwide brand. They supply powersports vehicles, like their ATVs, in the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. People around the world want to get these vehicles for their powersports adventures.

When you shop for a Can-Am vehicle, you’ll enjoy a wide range of options. Some seat one rider while others can bring up to six passengers along for the ride. Bring along a whole crew to explore the trail or assist with work tasks on your property. Or head out on solo rides enjoying the adrenaline rushes in not-so-quiet solitude. Whatever your riding style, you can find a four wheeler to match.

The vehicles also range in their power potential. Beginner riders can stick with models in the low 400ccs, which gives enough power to blaze the trail while still being easy to control. Experienced riders can enjoy the engines offering upper 900ccs.

With the various models available to you, you’ll enjoy a range of features. These include everything from Dynamic Power Steering to Smart-Lok Technology. Some features improve the four wheeler’s comfort, performance, or safety. With so many features to choose from, it’s easy to find a model that fits your needs and wants!
