BRP targets adrenaline junkies with more powerful 2017 lineup
Company reveals upgraded off-roader, Sea-Doo and Spyder motorcycle
ORLANDO, Fla.—BRP Inc. has unveiled its new amped-up 2017 lineup at its latest dealer conference in Florida.
The company threw back the curtain on a number of innovated designs, including a more powerful off-roader, a new Sea-Doo and the latest iteration of its three-wheeled motorcycle, the Can-Am Spyder.
Eying the side-by-side market, BRP said the Can-Am Maverick X3 is designed with adrenaline junkies in mind. The new off-roader packs 154 horsepower under its hood and can reach 60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds. Working to take hold of the vehicle segment, the company has committed to five years of new designs.
“After the launch of the Can-Am Defender vehicle in September 2015 and the six-passenger Defender MAX model in March 2016, the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side is the third vehicle demonstrating our commitment to launching a new side-by-side vehicle every six months through 2020,” the company’s president and CEO, José Boisjoli, said.
Meanwhile, the new Sea-Doo Spark TRIXX PWC is the company’s latest foray in the powered leisure watercraft market. An alteration on the previous Spark, BRP claims the water craft’s ROTAX 900 HO ACE engine is the lightest on the market. The Sea-Doo also features newly-designed handle bars and step wedges to help amateurs take greater control of the machine.
And like previous models of its three-wheeled bike, the company is marketing the 2017 Can‑Am Spyder F3 Limited as a touring motorcycle that offers greater stability over long rides than its two-wheeled counterparts. The new design includes a removable rear case boosting the vehicle’s total cargo capacity to 36.5 gallons (138 litres).
