2013 Can-Am Outlander MAX XT 650 Features and Benefits

Industry-leading performance

Redesigned air box
The new air box was reconfigured and placed at a higher and more centralized location for filtering and processing air. The no-tools air box features a dual-room design that improves the air filtration process and the quality of air by capturing dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in another section before it sends the air to the engine. Along with the relocated air box the air intake is also higher in the frame to improve the machine's capabilities in the mud and water.

Large 5.4-gal (20.5 L) fuel tank
25 percent more fuel capacity, which means you can ride longer. Total capacity is 5.4 gallons (20.5 L).

Large radiator with increased cooling capacity
The larger, more efficient radiator offers almost double the cooling capacity and keeps the engine running cool for optimal Industry-leading performance. The radiator capacity grew by 14 kW with the engineering updates.

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with engine braking
For ease of use, you can count on the CVT transmission that features engine braking to help slow you when going downhill.

Rotax® V-Twin engine options
Available with a 46-hp Rotax 500, 62-hp Rotax 650, 71-hp Rotax 800R or 82-hp Rotax 1000 liquid-cooled V-Twin engines with four valves per cylinder and overhead camshafts. With twin fuel injectors that supply efficient fuel delivery into the combustion chamber for powerful, yet precise performance.
Precision-engineered handling

Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension
The only independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes, meaning the wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion like competitors' systems. This ensures the vehicle only moves in the direction you point it. With fewer moving parts than competitive systems. The proven Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension has been reconfigured to offer increased rigidity and improved suspension travel. The updates lead to lower pivot points providing geometric squatting for improved traction and the transfer of power to the ground.

Double A-arm with dive-control geometry
Includes dive-control geometry for better cornering and vehicle-braking dynamics and anti-kickback geometry for better steering feel. The 9 inches of suspension travel increase trail comfort and aggressive riding capability.
Surrounding Spar Technology (SST G2) frame with Geometric Contact Control
The next generation and industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST G2) frame. The welded-steel frame incorporates new processes and updated geometry for increased structural integrity, improved durability and precision Precision-engineered handling. The more efficient SST G2 design offers increased strength compared to a traditional tubular steel chassis, a lower center of gravity, better Precision-engineered handling and requires far fewer components, materials and welds.

214-mm ventilated disc brakes with hydraulic twin-piston calipers
The front and rear setup use large 214-mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power.
Rider-focused design

Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.™)
Outlander MAX models feature the exclusive D.E.S.S.™ anti-theft system. The ATV will not start unless a coded microchip in the key matches a code embedded in the engine control module. It means only you can start your vehicle.

Improved raised floorboards
Improved passenger floorboard angles to create a more natural resting position by improving the foot peg angle and depth. A third row of foot grips added to improve lateral adherence.

5.7-gal (21.4L) water-resistant rear storage box
A huge 5.7-gallon (21.4L) rear storage box offers industry-leading cargo capacity and is located beneath the rear cargo rack. The more convenient location means riders can access the water-resistant, sealed storage box even when the rear cargo rack is loaded.

Multi-function racks with LinQ quick-attach accessory system
The Outlander ATVs have redesigned cargo racks offering more convenience, greater durability, improved versatility and industry-leading cargo hauling prowess. High-strength, reinforced composite racks replace the tubular steel setup. The innovative racks feature an integrated anti-skid surface and elevated ridges for improved cargo holding. Numerous edges and holes improve use with tie-downs and bungee cords. Additional predetermined "cutouts" were also added for use with Can-Am's exclusive LinQ accessory system, which is adaptable and customizable for various uses and products. LinQ accessories are already available from Can-Am dealers. Combined rack capacity is 300-lb (100-lb front / 200-lb rear).

Convertible Rack/Seat system (CRS) with storage box
Takes the Outlander MAX from one-up to two-up in a matter of seconds. Gives you plenty of storage in one-up mode and unmatched comfort and convenience for your passenger when riding two-up.

Easy access for maintenance
Can-Am engineers succeeded at producing a more maintenance-friendly setup. The battery was relocated beneath the seat to offer easier access and improved protection. The rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter and relays were also placed under the seat.

Multi-function digital gauge
Tells the rider everything in one easy glance. Our easy-to-read multi-function gauge is equipped with a digital information center including a speedometer, tachometer (bar graph RPM, bottom bar numerical), odometer, trip meter, gear position, hour meter, engine hour meter, temperature and engine lights, fuel gauge and a clock function.

Improved ergonomic passenger comfort
A redesigned backrest reduces kickback and has added flex, plus is raised and more enveloping to boost lumbar support. The newly designed seat is angled for better comfort and more support.

230-W headlights. The most lightning output of any ATV in the industry
Restyled headlights project Can-Am heritage and also offer enhanced visibility for trail riding. On high beam, the twin 60-W projectors and dual 55-W reflectors give the Outlander 230 -W of visual clarity.

Center skid plate
The high-strength skid plate is made from proven materials and is designed for supreme protection and has the ability to slide over certain obstacles. Made of 5-mm thick injection-molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

1,300-lb (590 kg) towing capacity
The Outlander offers a sizeable, 1,300-pound towing capacity and a new 2-in. receiver hitch as standard equipment.

Improved multi-position passenger handgrips
A new handhold shape flexes to reduce impact on the passenger's hands, and is ergonomically designed for a more comfortable holding position.

59-in. wheelbase
The passenger rides well in front of the rear axle for rock-solid stability and super predictable Precision-engineered handling.

Dual taillights
The Outlander taillights offer a stylish design and increased visibility for trail riding.
Specific to Package

Handlebar wind deflectors
Premium look and protection from brush and cold.

Optional Pure Magnesium Metallic painted plastic or indutry-exclusive NEXT G-1 Vista? camouflage

Visco-Lok† QE auto-locking front differential
All DPS-equipped models have the Visco-Lok† QE calibration up front, which has all the features and benefits of the standard quick-engagement Visco-Lok† differential, but with an even quicker engagement point. This differential, unlike some competitors' differentials, does not have a speed limiter.

12-in. cast-aluminum wheels with machined finish
The center-less design reduces unsprung weight and offers improved strength. Durability was increased in strategic areas while excess material was eliminated in other spots to save weight.

26-in. Carlisle ACT tires
These 26-in., 3-ply tires feature a tread pattern that is aggressive enough to tackle the toughest terrain, yet provide a smooth ride in a lightweight package.

Tri-mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS™)
The Tri-Mode DPS™ features three rider-selectable modes (MIN, MED and MAX) of steering depending on rider preference. The system is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. This technology also includes a Direct Link setup that uses advanced magnetic field sensors for faster response to steering input than competitive technology, which then minimizes steering lag. Less kickback and more trail feedback is supplied to the operator because of the 50:1 final gear ratio, which is the largest in the industry. A high-capacity 50-amp motor means the DPS™ will never fade with heavy use and all DPS™-equipped models also come with the Visco-Lok† QE.

Heavy-duty front and rear bumpers
The front and rear bumpers are factory installed and are covered by a factory warranty. The added protection gives peace of mind in rugged conditions.

3,000-lb WARN winch with roller fairlead, wired remote control & integrated remote storage
This powerful 3,000-lb (1,361 kg) capacity factory-installed winch is equipped with a wired remote control that neatly stows in the underside of the ATV's front storage compartment cover.
