gine op­tions: a pow­er­ful Ro­tax 800 V-Twin EFI en­gine, and now a Ro­tax 1000 V-Twin EFI en­gine.

BRP pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Jos Boisjoli said this gave the Com­man­der the most power and best fuel ef­fi­ciency in the in­dus­try.

‘‘The Com­man­der 1000 is 39 per cent more fuel efficient than its class com­peti­tor,’’ he said.

‘‘BRP con­tin­ues to set the pace in prod­uct in­no­va­tions.

‘‘Cap­i­tal­is­ing on the Can-Am brand growth mo­men­tum, we are en­ter­ing in a new busi­ness seg­ment with the Com­man­der, which com­pletes our prod­uct of­fer­ing for both our on and of­froad cus­tomers.’’

The Can-Am Com­man­der line re­flects BRPs com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing the side-by-side cus­tomer a ma­chine that does not force the rider to com­pro­mise for­mance for func­tion­al­ity.

It has such in­no­va­tive fea­tures as the Dual-Level cargo box, TTI rear sus­pen­sion, an­tidive front-end ge­om­e­try and more, throt­tle-by-wire through its In­tel­li­gent Throt­tle Con­trol (iTC) sys­tem, a two-inch di­am­e­ter rollover pro­tec­tion sys­tem (ROPS-ap­proved), in­dus­trylead­ing fuel ca­pac­ity (38 litres) and the most cock­pit stor­age of any other side-by-side.

‘‘When we started to de­sign the ve­hi­cle, we were de­ter­mined to of­fer con­sumers a ve­hi­cle that would meet our Can-Am brand prom­ise of de­liv­er­ing an ex­cep­tional rid­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,’’ Mr Boisjoli said.

‘‘This fo­cus on the cus­tomer also means our dealer net­work will have a ve­hi­cle that will

per- raise in­dus­try stan­dards and re-shape mar­ket dy­nam­ics as we know them to­day.’’

The Can-Am Com­man­der line con­sists of the fol­low­ing mod­els: Com­man­der 800 EFI, Com­man­der 800 EFI XT, Com­man­der 1000 EFI, Com­man­der 1000 EFI XT and Com­man­der 1000 EFI X.

With its XT and X pack­ages, BRP, through its Can-Am brand, con­tin­ues the tra­di­tion of bring­ing ex­cel­lent value through fac­tory-built pack­ages.

BRP also has a large ac­ces­sories line-up and off-road rid­ing col­lec­tions with a large as­sort­ment of the most soughtafter ac­ces­sories that have been de­vel­oped si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the new ve­hi­cles.

The 50 ac­ces­sories avail­able of­fer to­tal in­te­gra­tion in form and func­tion to com­ple­ment the rid­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
