Can-am Renegade 800R ATV Family Features and Benefits

The 71-horsepower, 80º 799cc V-twin engine powering the Outlander 800R continues its stronghold in the 800-class and is
more than capable of holding its own against machines with larger displacement levels*. The liquid-cooled, single overhead cam power plant has four valves per cylinder and is fed by a 46mm throttle body and two VDO Siemens fuel injectors
for instantaneous throttle response. With an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio, gobs of torque, electronic fuel injection,
and progressive throttle control the Rotax engine is powerful, efficient and smooth in any situation. And EFI means the
800R engine always operates at its peak, regardless of temperature or altitude.

The large capacity radiator improves cooling for optimal engine performance for both work and play.

The engine package includes an updated exhaust system, and a durable end cap/cover contribute to the exhaust’s upperclass appearance. The new system remains true to the Can-Am tradition of producing a throaty and impressive exhaust
note, yet adheres to strict dB and emissions standards.

The Renegade 800R air box is placed at a higher and more centralized location for filtering and processing air. The no-tools
air box features a dual-room design that improves the air filtration process and the quality of air by capturing dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in another section before it sends the air to the engine. Along with the air box the air intake is also higher in the frame to improve the machine’s capabilities in the mud and water. Accessing the filter for maintenance and inspection only requires the removal of the seat, console plastic and exterior push plate. The air filter is securely attached to the air box housing with a new screw-on system and push plate that work in tandem to create a tight seal.

The Renegade ATVs have a maintenance-friendly setup. The battery is beneath the seat to offer easier access and improved protection. The rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter and relays were also placed conveniently under the seat.

For performance in wet conditions and terrain, the CVT system has a 13-bolt sealing system and an integrated drain plug
that’s easy to access if the need ever arises to remove water from the CVT housing. The CVT intake is positioned in a high
location in the chassis for optimal performance in wet riding conditions. Automatic transmission with standard engine
braking featuring high, low, park, neutral and reverse is also included.

The Renegade 800R uses the next generation and industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 chassis from
BRP. The welded-steel SST G2 frame offers increased structural integrity, improved durability and precision handling. The
SST G2 design offers also increases strength, provides a lower center of gravity, improves handling and requires far less
components, materials and welds than a traditional tube frame. The SST G2 frame also stronger torsional stiffness to more
properly meets the high expectations of the end user for both work and play.

The progressive auto-locking Visco-Lok front differential is unique to the ATV industry. The innovative system constantly
monitors front wheel speed and, if it detects one wheel spinning more quickly than the other, it progressively sends additional power to the wheel with better traction. Wheel hop or driveline wind-up is also eliminated to keep the system
transparent to the operator. It’s also a fully locking design, which means no need for either a rev or speed limiter.

QE (Quicker Engaging) is available on the Renegade X xc.

The Renegade retains its race-proven double A-arm setup and uses five-way preload HPG shocks. Front-end suspension
travel is 9.0 inches (23.6 cm). Dive-control geometry tightly controls the roll-center, especially when entering corners. The setup also inspires confidence, reducing kickback to the operator by locating the knuckle in the wheel.

The TTI, which offers less moving parts than competitive systems, was designed to eliminate scrub and camber changes
when the suspension moves up and down and keep the quad in straight line. Unique to Can-Am, the proven Torsional
Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension offers increased rigidity and 9.3 inches (24.1 cm) of travel. A removable
external sway bar and lower pivot points improve geometric squatting to improve traction and the transferring of power to
the ground.

The standard Renegade 800R wears preload-adjustable high-pressure gas (HPG) shocks, front and rear, with a specific
calibration to soak up both high- and low-speed bumps and keep the ride smooth.

The base Renegade 800R model has innovative computer-optimized wheels. A center-less wheel design reduces unsprung
weight but offers improved strength. Durability increased in strategic areas while excess material was eliminated in other
areas to save weight.

This versatile tire provides proven, all-around trail performance and impressive traction.

The front setup uses two large 214mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power. At the rear, the
models use two, twin-piston caliper and 214mm hydraulic disc brakes. The system also includes separate front and rear
hand brake levers for optimal control.

For improved nighttime clarity and visibility on the trail, the Renegade 800R comes with 240 watts (4 x 60 w) of lighting
power for the most in the industry. Four projector-type headlights bring unequaled styling and performance to the Renegade. The taillights offer a stylish design that blends in with the rear plastic and offers increased visibility for trail riding.

The large fuel tank holds 5.4 gallons (20.5 liters) of gas, so you can have more time to explore.

D.E.S.S.™ is the ATV industry’s lone factory-installed anti-theft device. The system utilizes electronic key codes that are
required to match each specific ATV’s ECM. The machine will not start unless the coded microchip in the key matches the
code pre-installed in the engine control module. Two keys are included with each model. The performance key allows the
ATV to operate at maximum performance. The Normal key limits acceleration and top speed.

Can-am Renegade 800R X XC

Building on the championship-winning experience of the Can-Am GNCC racing program, BRP engineers used feedback
from its 4x4 woods racers, including multi-time GNCC U2 class champion Clifton Beasley, to develop the Renegade 800R
X xc. The “X” package includes extra parts and accessories to help it stand out and perform under extreme conditions. It is
also the only sport-oriented ATV with power steering available on the market.

Calibrated specifically for aggressive trail riding and racing, the 800R X xc ATV’s Tri-mode DPS system features three
modes (MIN, MED and MAX) lets riders select the desired amount of steering assist for the terrain and conditions. DPS
offers variable steering assistance no matter what mode is selected. The system 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.

All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. It progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to
push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differentials, does not have a speed or rev limiter.

Up front, the Renegade 800R X xc features FOX Podium X piggyback shocks with high- and low-speed compression
adjustability, rebound and preload adjustment. Front travel is 9.0 inches (23.6 cm). The rear also features FOX Podium X
piggyback shocks and high- and low-speed compression adjustment, rebound and preload adjustability. Rear suspension
travel is 9.3 inches (24.1 cm).

Inspired by GNCC racing and feedback from racing research and develop, the X xc model’s cast-aluminum wheels include
beadlocks. This design clamps the tire bead securely to the Renegade 800R X xc wheel for added performance under heavy
acceleration and cornering.

The 2013 Can-Am Renegade 800R X xc wears a new yellow, black and white X Package graphics kit on its trademark yellow
plastic. A premium, embroidered gripper seat cover adds to its ready-to-race appeal.

Specific to the Renegade 800R X xc is a seat cover that caters to aggressive riding styles and the ATV’s stellar finish.

An aluminum skid plate provides extra protection for extreme riding situations and brutal terrain.

Aggressive trail riders love the added protection from the color-matched wind deflectors.

Hard-core riders will appreciate the racing-inspired looks and feel from the 6061-T6 taper-profile handlebar with square
racing pad.

The X xc package provides a powerful magneto with 625 watts of power output.

The front part of the frame is weaker on the 2012-2013s. When G1s first came out you didn't see anywhere near the posts about frames breaking as you do on the 2012s and the 2013s have the same frame. You are better off keeping the 10. It will handle better than the new models. Just put a 840 kit, cams, tuner and a set of Fox shocks and you will be money ahead and have a lot better and faster machine.

The new frames are heavier and weaker than the 2010s. You would be better off keeping what you have, installing a 840 kit, tuner, pipe and maybe a set of Fox shocks. You would have a faster, better turning, lighter more dependable machine.

There are several of us on this forum which own 2012s that are sitting in the shops because of broken frames.
