The Arctic Cat and Can-Am comparison compares the large two-seaters: Arctic Cat Alterra 1000 TRV and Can-Am Outlander MAX 1000R. They meet the desire for a long journey. Next time there will be an ATV trip. Up to the far north. With a large proportion of off-road terrain, that goes without saying. And since your partner wants – or should – go with you, there is hardly a way around one of the large two-seaters. We have taken on two typical representatives of the two-seater genre: The long Outlander MAX 1000R, the classic power bolt from the Can-Am brand, meets the new Arctic Cat Alterra 1000 TRV. While soulmates and doing the same job, the two North American ATVs are still very different.
Arctic Cat vs. Can-Am: Weight comparison
Both ATVs are not lightweights: With passengers and luggage, 600 kilograms are quickly packed onto the studded tires. We are surprised. Although the cat looks a bit lighter, it trumps its competitor by almost 30 kilograms when empty. The mobile scale shows the number 410 when we lifted the TRV onto the measuring plates. At 376 kilos, the Can-Am seems almost modest, but even this mass needs to be tamed.
Endless steam: horsepower
89 horsepower is available to the Can-Am pilot to get the MAX moving. Honestly: that sucks. The V2 engine provides power that would befit an athlete. Anyone who now believes that the large Rotax engine has no If you had manners, you are wrong: at the command of the electronic thumb throttle, the engine gets down to business as soft as butter and can be easily dosed. Thanks to the long final translation, the Canadian runs well over 120 km/h. A parade is also the acceleration of the MAX: After 17 seconds, the 400-meter distance is rushed through – no ATV has ever made it that fast with us.
The cat is significantly weaker in paper form. Compared to the competitor, it lacks almost 20 hp. That may seem like a lot, but in real comparison you never have the thought and the feeling of being inferior. The TRV is translated shorter than the Outlander. When it comes to top speed, it’s almost 10 km/h missing before its V2 engine cuts down noticeably. Up to 70 km/h, the American is at least on par thanks to its more aggressive CVT design. The Outlander can only show off its power advantage in the higher speed range.
