2008 Can-Am DS 450 EFI Sport ATV - Detailed Information

DS 450 EFI ATV Key Features

DS 450 Rotax® 4-TEC 450 EFI

Rotax® 4-TEC 450 EFI

Rotax® 4-TEC 450 EFI – This new engine is the most powerful in the class. The top-end of the DOHC single has DNA from the Rotax V990 which powers the Aprilia‡ RSV 1000 R sportbike while the crankcase, clutch and transmission are specifically designed for the rigors of offroad riding. Its free-flow design – with the largest piston bore, intake valves and throttle body of the segment – delivers awesome power and great potential for performance tuning. A sophisticated EFI system with superfast micro-controller optimizes performance at every rpm, compensating for both temperature and altitude; throttle response is instant.

Can-Am DS450 Aluminum Frame

ALTEC™ aluminum frame – Aerospace-grade aluminum in dualpyramidal design is exceptionally strong and lightweight. Unique aluminum lock-bolt fastening system eliminates the need for welds. Strength comes from computer-optimized design rather than heavier or added materials. The pyramidal structure has been proven on BRP’s Ski-Doo® REV™ and REV-XP™ snowmobiles.

DS 450's R-type Double A-arms
R-type double A-arm front suspension The new R-Type forged aluminum double A-arm front suspension delivers razor-sharp handling, remarkable bump absorption, and confident tracking. The radical design with inverted dual-piston caliper – on the inside of the disc – enables placement of the ball-joints and kingpin axis deep inside the wheel for reduced scrub and steering kickback, as well as selfcorrecting behavior under hard braking. All this in a lightweight package with less unsprung weight than competitive designs for a better ride and improved control.

KYB HPG piggyback shocks Aluminum-bodied shocks with compression and rebound adjustment and threaded pre-load adjustment. Features 9.5-inches (24 cm) of travel in front, 10.2 inches (26 cm) in rear. Lightweight, capable and adjustable.

R-Type rear swing arm suspension Lightweight design dramatically reduces unsprung weight for quick response, exceptional traction capability and less rider fatigue. Cast-aluminum swingarm with rising-rate linkage, hollow Chromoly 4140 rear axle, extended-reach aluminum
hubs and aluminum chain sprocket.

Wilwood braking systems - Inverted dual-piston calipers – mounted inside front rotors – enable unique knuckle/spindle/A-arm design. Front and rear rotors’ wave shape is computerdesigned for exceptional cooling.

Performance wheels/tires Specifically-designed ITP‡ Holeshot‡ SR tires to get maximum performance from the DS 450 EFI. The rims are lightweight, yet durable, because of aluminum construction with rolled bead.

Performance ergonomicsDesigned to give the active sport rider room and the right leverage. Narrow body and seat with smooth transitional surfaces, wide foot pegs and deep heel guards.

Performance features Detachable headlights, interchangeable front fenders
