The Can-Am® DS 450™, DS 450™ X mx and DS 450™ X xc return for the 2011 model year lineup to offer unparalleled performance wherever the rider needs it. From the roughest woods-racing courses and motocross tracks of the east, to the wide-open desert expanses of the west, the Can-Am DS 450 features performance for any sport 450-class rider.

With an ultralight chassis featuring the groundbreaking no-weld, aluminum ALTEC frame and a potent Rotax® engine, the Can-Am DS 450 has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any 450-class sport ATV*. The DS 450 model continues to maintain the benchmark for performance, handling and control – both on the track and on the trail.
