2009 Can-Am Outlander MAX 500 EFI


The MAX concept allows you to go from one-up to two-up in a matter of seconds, giving you the ability to ride with a passenger. Key features include a comfortable raised rear seat, sturdy ergonomic passenger handgrips and raised floorboards. Plus, the chassis design places rider and passenger in front of the axle, resulting in a smoother ride. With or without a passenger, it¹s something you have to experience.
