Surrounding Spar Technology (SST G2) frame with Geometric Contact Control
The Outlander 650 X mr uses the next generation and industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 frame from BRP. Introduced in 2012 on the 800R and 1000 models, the welded-steel frame incorporated new processes and updated geometry for increased structural integrity, improved durability and precision handling. The more efficient SST design offers increased strength compared to a traditional tubular steel chassis, a lower center of gravity, better handling and requires far less components, materials and welds.  

Double A-arm Front Suspension with Dive-control Geometry
The front suspension features a dive-control and anti-kickback geometry that positions the pivot points in space instead of simply adding stiffer shocks and springs. The geometry also inspires confidence-reducing kickback to the operator by locating the knuckle in the wheel. The 2013 650 X mr ATV uses five-way preload adjustable, mud-specific shocks that supply comfort both in the bog and on the trail. Front-end suspension travel is 9.0 inches (22.9 cm).  

Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension
Unique to Can-Am and inspired by trophy trucks, the proven Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension offers increased rigidity, improved suspension travel at 9.3 inches (23.6 cm) and includes a removable external sway bar. The TTI, which offers up to 75 percent less moving parts than competitive systems, was designed to eliminate tire scrub and camber changes when the suspension moves up and down. This setup, which improves ride quality and suspension travel, keeps the ATV in a straight line and requires less steering adjustments than competitive models. Lower pivot points provide geometric squatting for improved traction and the transfer of power to the ground. 

Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
The Dynamic Power Steering system on the Outlander 650 X mr has three separate selectable levels of steering assistance: Minimum, Medium or Maximum. DPS provides variable steering assistance no matter what mode is selected and is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. This technology also includes a Direct Link setup that uses advanced magnetic field sensors for faster response to steering input than competitive technology, which then minimizes steering lag. Less kickback and more trail feedback is supplied to the operator because of the 50:1 final gear ratio, which is the largest in the industry. A high-capacity 50-amp motor means the DPS will never fade with heavy use and all DPS-equipped models also come with the Visco-Lok QE. 

 Visco-Lok† QE auto-locking front differential
The industry exclusive Visco-Lok QE progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. The system also eliminates wheel hop and driveline wind-up so it remains transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Visco-Lok QE can fully lock with no rev or speed limiter. All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential, which remains for vital for slow-speed, technical terrain.  



Image214-mm ventilated disc brakes with hydraulic twin-piston calipers
The 2013 Outlander 650 X mr features outboard hydraulic disc brakes. The front setup uses large 214mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power. At the rear, the 650 Xmr uses a single twin-piston caliper and 214mm hydraulic disc brake that is located in the right, rear wheel. Braking is controlled by a single hand brake (controls front and rear) on the left side of the handlebars and a rear foot brake in the right floorboard (controls rear only). 

12-in. (30.5cm) cast-aluminum wheels with machined finish
The center-less design reduces unsprung weight and offers improved strength. Durability was increased in strategic areas while excess material was eliminated in other spots to save weight.

28-inch (71cm) Maxxis Mudzilla Tires
The 28-in. Maxxis Mudzilla 6-ply tires were selected for their exceptional mud-friendly characteristics. Large lugs and an aggressive tread pattern are design to give a maximum traction in the mud and a smooth ride to the next mud hole. Tire offers rim guard for improved wheel protection. 



Stylish Design
The 2013 Outlander 650 X mr ATV mimics the larger Outlander 1000 and 800R models with its cutting-edge styling and aggressive and muscular sightlines. Specialty graphics and X package color scheme help the 650 X mr stand out in a crowd. 

High-strength, multip urpose rear rack with LinQ quick-attach accessory system 
The high-strength, reinforced composite rear rack has an integrated anti-skid surface and elevated ridges for improved cargo holding (rated at 200 pounds). Predetermined “cutouts” add versatility and are for use with Can-Am’s exclusive LinQ quick-attach accessory system, which is adaptable and customizable for various uses and products. 

5.7-gal (21.4L) rear storage compartment
Just because it’s made to perform in the mud, doesn’t mean the Outlander 650 X mr ATV isn’t versatile. A huge 5.7-gallon (21.4-liter) rear storage box offers industry-leading cargo capacity and is located beneath the rear cargo rack. This means you can place items in the water-resistant storage box even if the rear cargo rack is loaded. 

Front Bumper

A large bumper protects the front plastic and lights of the Outlander 650 X mr and offers a more distinct look over stock. 

1,300-lb (590 kg) towing capacity
The Outlander offers a 1,300-pound towing capacity and a 2-inch receiver hitch as standard equipment. 

 Easy access to maintenance items
Like the rest of the G2 Outlander family, the 650 X mr ATV has a maintenance-friendly design. The battery, rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter and relays are all conveniently located under the seat. 

Industry-leading 230-watt headlights
On high beam, the twin 60-watt reflectors and dual 55-watt projectors give the Outlander 230 watts of visual clarity. All Outlander ATVs feature the most lighting output in the industry. 

 Dual taillights
The taillights offer a seamless and stylish design as well as increased visibility out on the trail. 

More Powerful Magneto
The Outlander 650 X mr ATV package provides a more-powerful magneto with 625 watts of power output for powering auxiliary lights, winch and onboard sound system. 

ImageStandard Skid Plate
The high-strength skid plate is made from proven materials and is designed for supreme protection and has the ability to slide over certain obstacles. Made of 5-mm thick injection-molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE). 

 Multifunction Digital Gauge
Tells the rider everything in one easy glance. The LCD display provides the rider with a speedometer, tachometer (bar graph RPM, bottom bar numerical RPM), odometer, trip and hour meters, diagnostic center, gear position, engine hour meter, 4x4 indicator, temperature and engine lights, fuel gauge, clock and even an auto shut off after 15 minutes. 

X-package coloration , graphics and seat cover
The Can-Am Outlander 650 X mr has a black-and-yellow graphics scheme with white highlights. A premium, embroidered all-black gripper seat cover is designed to integrate seamlessly with the plastic and graphics for both a custom look and superior fit and finish. 

Aluminum footpegs

These aluminum footpegs provide added grip while riding in mud. 

Digitall y Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.)
D.E.S.S., the ATV Industry’s first standard anti-theft device, requires an electronic code in the key to match a code in the vehicle in order to operate the vehicle. 

Customization Ready
The Outlander 650 X mr ATV is customization ready, offering a full line of Can-Am performance accessories and comes pre-wired for a winch.
