The 499cc liquid-cooled Rotax V-Twin powerplant produces 46 horsepower and more power than competitive models with much larger displacements. With an unmatched power-to-weight ratio and electronic fuel injection, the single overhead cam engine is as efficient and very capable of work and play. Regardless of temperature or altitude, EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times.
Despite its unprecedented performance levels, the eight-valve engine remains controllable and offers useable power for a wide array of riders and situations. Progressive throttle control means the power remains manageable in slow-speed circumstances or during a flat-out sprint.
DUAL-ROOM, NO-TOOLS AIR BOX
The Outlander 500 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. 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 screw-on system and push plate that work in tandem to create a tight seal.
The CVT system cover features a secure 13-bolt system for a controlled seal in wet environments. A dedicated drain plug is built into the cover and easily accessible if the need ever arises to remove water from the CVT housing. The CVT intake was repositioned to a higher 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 large, efficient radiator offers around 22 kW of cooling capacity to keep the engine running cool for optimal performance.
HIGH-GRADE EXHAUST AND SILENCER
The Outlander has a durable end cap/cover on its silencer to contribute to the exhaust’s upper-class appearance. The system remains true to the Can-Am tradition of producing a throaty and impressive exhaust note, yet adheres to strict dB and emissions standards.
SST G2 FRAME
The Outlander 500 uses the next generation and industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 frame from Can- Am. Introduced in 2012, the welded-steel frame incorporated proven processes and geometry for increased structural integrity, 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.
Even with the sturdier frame, engineers incorporated almost 16 percent less parts on the frame than the frames used previous generation Outlander ATVs. The frame is more durable and can accept more than two times greater force and has twice the torsional stiffness as the original chassis. This frame, more properly meets the high expectations of the end user for both work and play.
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. This front suspension gives the Outlander improved ride quality and comfort without hampering handling.
The 2014 model uses five-way preload shocks that offer two inches of additional suspension travel for both trail comfort and aggressive riding situations. Front-end suspension travel is 9 inches (22.9 cm).
TRAILING TORSIONAL 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, better 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 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 as well as a slightly different feel compared to previous Outlanders.
VISCO-LOK FRONT DIFFERENTIAL
The Visco-Lok front differential system offers a progressive, auto-locking design that is unique to the ATV industry. Riders can simply focus on riding while letting the smart and fine-tuned Visco-Lok system handle the traction and four-wheel-drive differential lock duties. 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. It also eliminates wheel hop or driveline wind-up helping it to remain transparent to the operator. The system offers 100 percent locking without the need for a rev or speed limiter.
214MM DISC BRAKES WITH TWIN-PISTON CALIPERS
Inspired by the durable braking setup on the Can-Am Renegade line of ATVs, the 2014 Outlander 500 family features out- board hydraulic disc brakes. The front setup uses large 214mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power. At the rear, the models use a single twin-piston caliper and 214mm hydraulic disc brake that is located in the right, rear wheel.
12-INCH (30.5 CM) STEEL WHEELS
Can-Am designers equipped the base Outlander 500 with 12-inch steel wheels.
26-INCH (66CM) TIRES
Mated to the wheels are rugged 26-inch (66cm) Carlisle Badlands tires that offer superior performance in a variety of conditions and terrain.
STANDARD 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.
The 2014 Can-Am Outlander 500 has modern, cutting-edge styling that resembles the flagship Outlander 1000 ATV. Its sightlines signify its Can-Am brand DNA and its muscular facade includes a more seamless makeup. It also wears industry- exclusive, low profile, multi-function cargo racks with a special anti-slide surface were also carried over from the larger Outlander ATVs.
HIGH-STRENGTH MULTI-FUNCTION RACKS WITH INNOVATIVE LINQ SYSTEM
The high-strength, reinforced composite racks feature an integrated anti-skid surface and elevated ridges for improved cargo holding. Versatility is enhanced with numerous edges and holes. Predetermined “cutouts” were also added for use with Can-Am’s exclusive LinQ quick-attach accessory system, which is adaptable and customizable for various uses and products. The 500 has a combined rack capacity of 300 pounds (100 front / 200 rear).
WATER-RESISTANT REAR STORAGE BOX
A huge 5.7-gallon (21.4-liter) rear storage box offers industry-leading cargo capacity and is located beneath the rear cargo rack. The more-convenient location means riders can access the water-resistant, sealed storage box even when the rear cargo rack is loaded.
1,300-POUND TOWING CAPACITY
The Outlander offers a sizeable, 1,300-pound towing capacity and a 2-inch receiver hitch as standard equipment.
EASY ACCESS FOR MAINTENANCE
The Can-Am Outlander 500 has a maintenance-friendly design. The battery is beneath the seat to offer easier access and better protection. The rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter and relays are also conveniently located under the seat.
230-WATT LIGHTING FROM HEADLIGHTS
On high beam, the twin 60-watt reflectors and dual 55-watt projectors give the Outlander 230 watts of visual clarity. The Outlander 500 family features the most lighting output of any ATV in the industry.
The taillights offer a stylish design and increased visibility for trail riding.
LARGE FUEL TANK
The Outlander has a capacity of 5.4 gallons (20.5 liters), which means one can ride longer and work harder.
MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL GAUGE
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.
D.E.S.S. (DIGITALLY ENCODED SECURITY SYSTEM) KEYS
D.E.S.S. is the ATV industry’s lone factory-installed anti-theft device. The system utilizes electronic key codes that are re- quired 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.
The Outlander ATVs are customization ready, offering a full line of Can-Am performance accessories and come pre-wired for a winch.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER 500 DPS ADDS
Dressed in yellow for 2014, the Outlander 500 includes Tri-Mode DPS, Visco-Lok QE and cast-aluminum wheels to separate it from the standard base model.
TRI-MODE DYNAMIC POWER STEERING (DPS)
The Can-Am DPS system is outfitted with three separate selectable levels of steering assistance: Minimum, Medium or Maxi- mum. Dynamic Power Steering provides variable steering assistance no matter what mode the rider chooses for the terrain. The system is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. All DPS-equipped models also come with the Visco-Lok QE.
QE stands for quicker engagement. 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.
The 12-inch cast-aluminum wheels with a centre-less design are outfitted with 26-inch Carlisle Badlands tires give the 500 with DPS a different look than the base Outlander 500.
￼CAN-AM OUTLANDER 500 XT PACKAGE HIGHLIGHTS
