Word has been circulating on the street for about six months of a Pure Sport UTV from Can-Am.
Rumors of a drive system featuring the mighty triple cylinder, 1500cc SOHC 4-Tec Sea-Doo engine have been rampant.
This is due in large part to BRP’s UTV-like Elite side-by-side, dual track snowmobile powered by the same motor package.
While a 135 HP mill in its mildest state of tune sounds a little crazy, how about this twist? The 4-Tec engine family is said to be of the “modular” variety allowing for different configurations using the same top end pieces.
In other words, maybe a twin cylinder, 1000cc variant of the triple producing about 75 HP would be more reasonable.
At this writing we think Can-Am will take the template laid by Polaris’ Ranger RZR to the next level.
In simple terms, whatever the RZR does, Can-Am will be focused on doing it better and faster.
