    New Can Am Sport

    Had a chance to sit in a new Sport Maverick 60 inch in a showroom. Nice machine with one major problem. It is very difficult to look over the front of the machine. I’m 6’1” and I couldn’t get a feel where the front wheels are at any time. I’m so used to my wolverines line of sight that I would find it difficult to ever get a good feeling on some technical trails or hills. I guess I’m keeping my wolvy for yet another few years.....

    I was 100% planning to get the Maverick 1000 as soon as they hit the showroom floor. I had been reading, riding and testing machines for 6 months. I liked the Maverick a lot more than the others, except the Wolverine 700. I just wished the Wolverine had more hp. Then the X2 was announced. Once the X2 arrived, I took it for a ride then took it home. Everything I wanted was there and I never looked back.

    I felt the same way when I jumped in the Maverick Trail (yes narrow) - I was looking to replace my rhino but couldn't get over the GIANT hood/nose on this machine. X2 came out and I placed my order that day - don't regret a thing!

    I'm with you guys. I almost bought the Maverick Trail but it's impossible to see the front end. I did get a chance to drive one. It works well but I prefer the X2. Much better visibility from the drivers seat, better clutching, lighter steering and I think it will be more reliable.

    I haven't paid much attention recently to what Can Am has in their line. This thread sent me looking at their website. One thing I found interesting as I was checked out the info on the Mav Sport is that they are saying no break-in maintenance or service required for one year or 1800 miles. Is that something new? They are also touting that it is very service friendly if you like to do it yourself. Apparently some of their owner feedback from previous models made it to the engineering team.
