MTM Powersports sets new standards in UAE off-roading by unveiling new flagship Can-Am Maverick X3 performance side-by-side vehicle

MTM Powersports, owned by the Al Masood family, is on course to add a new level of adrenaline to the UAE off-roading scene as it unveils the Can-Am Maverick X3, Bombardier Recreational Products' (BRP) flagship performance side-by-side vehicle. With a raft of features that deliver an outstanding off-road ride experience, the vehicle is engineered to reshape the UAE market and has already garnered interest from local enthusiasts with Sheikh Saeed bin Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum recently testing the vehicle.

The newly launched 2017 Maverick X3 is set to excite the off-road motorsport community. The side-by-side vehicle (SSV) has proven to be extremely popular among Emirati off-roaders looking to stand out from the crowd. The Maverick X3 is the latest addition to BRP's off-road lineup featuring incredible looks, agility and performance with a goal to lead the sport segment.

Following a day's off-road test ride, Sheikh Saeed bin Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum commented: "When it comes to off-roading in UAE's deserts, there's not much that can beat the Maverick X3 for an exhilarating and responsive ride. The power and the comfort of the SSV really does take off-roading to another level. Our country was blessed with a number of the world's top off-roading areas and after testing the Maverick X3 and I'm glad to say this is the perfect vehicle to fully enjoy the UAE's soft dunes."

During the testing stage, the first two units from the factory were sent over to MTM Powersports to be tested and adjusted to deal with the UAE's summer heat. The new Maverick X3 is designed to work perfectly in extreme climatic conditions, especially in high temperatures. The SSV was specially driven in the UAE during summer daytime with temperature up to 46 °C proving its ability to provide high performance and exhilarating ride in extreme heat to suit the off-roading scene in the GCC.

The Can-Am Maverick fuses its industry-leading power, precision handling and astounding comfort levels to create a dynamic new riding experience that includes top-of-the-line styling. Designed and engineered to be powerful, defiant and precise, Can Am's superior accessories enhance the ultimate dune and desert riding experience.

Featuring an all-new 154-HP turbocharged and intercooled inline, triple Cylinder Rotex ACE engine, the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle boasts commanding, all-around performance that makes it perfect for enjoying the UAE's soft Arabian sands. An airflow system and performance-timed transmission ensure the engine operates efficiently and at optimal levels. It goes 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and has high-performance QRS-X CV transmission calibrated to work with the turbo to virtually eliminate lag and enhance throttle response without shifting or inducing torque interruption.

The Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle provides high safety standards through its best-in class high-performance suspension with up to 61cm (24 inches) of travel, ideal front and rear balance (44% front/56% rear) and premium FOX shocks. Resting on an ultra-efficient, lightweight chassis, the model delivers optimized handling, exceptional durability and stiffer torsion. The Maverick X3 delivers comfort and confidence at high speeds with superior stability in even the most challenging terrain.

Commenting on the unveiling of the 2017 model, Mr. Bassem Wazafi, Commercial Manager, MTM Powersports said: "The 2017 Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle is an adrenaline rush and set to take the world by storm. It has an extremely bold character and is designed to encapsulate the driver and passenger so they feel connected to its every move. It features a low seating position, superior fit-and-finish and advanced Ergo-look cockpit. This bold configuration allows drivers to quickly interpret vehicle attitude and react to maximize performance."

"Sitting behind the wheel for the first time, I quickly felt the punchy performance and the vehicle's fast acceleration time, it is an exhilarating ride," added Wazafi.

Already proving its place at the top of the SSV sector, the all-new, bold Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo has claimed the UTV Unlimited Pro class victory at the 2016 Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno race in Las Vegas. Piloted by Jason Murray, the new SSV won its debut race just four days after its worldwide unveiling in Orlando, Fla.

Making the UAE the first GCC country to receive the Can-Am Maverick X3, the first batch of units will be available for sale in November 2016, with a two-year warranty.  For inquires or test drives requests, visit MTM showrooms in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
