Can-Am Commander 800R & 1000

BRP brings Can-Am DNA to the side-by-side market by introducing the 2011 Can-Am Commander™ line-up. The five model line-up with two engine options delivers on the Can-Am promise of cutting-edge design, meaningful innovation and a focus on convenience, maximum value and more usability for the consumer. We’ll be highlighting all of the models for you so you can see which one suits your needs the best!

The Can-Am Commander 800R comes stock with a 71 HP Rotax 800cc engine. This engine is the most powerful side-by-side engine under 1000cc. It also is the most fuel efficient in its segment. The engine features an electronic fuel injection system to keep the engine’s performance at its peak. The 800R also comes with the Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) and has a throttle-by-wire system used for a more accurate throttle response.

All Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicles, including the 800R, come stock with a quick-ratio steering system. The 800R also includes Double A-arm front suspension, which works to eliminate diving under heavy breaking and rough terrain. The driver and passenger can expect luxury seating with the advanced ergonomics that provide an optimal seating position, more leg room and automotive like controls.

    I recently purchased a 2011 Can Am Commander 800XT and am trying to locate the projected performance chart (RPM vs. MPH) for the vehicle with the Performance Key in place. I have been unable to locate this info on Can-Am’s website, from Can-Am’s Contact Us number or from the dealer. Where can I find this information or speak with someone who has this information? Is it normal to turn 5000 RPM to reach 30 MPH, driver only, no load using the Performance Key?

    Danny I got the same problem. I thought it was because I had my strap changed. At 30 mph my rpm is about 5500. Before I changed my strap 0 to 60 in a flash, and now it takes all day. If your question in answerred please let me know
