Can-Am ATV Model Information

2008 Can-Am Outlander 400 H.O. EFI ATV

Outlander 400 H.O. EFI ATV Key Features

Visco-Lok Front Differential – 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% with no rev or speed limiter. New calibration for V-twin models engages sooner. Can-Am exclusive.

Trailing Torsional Independent (TTI) Rear Suspension – Trailing arm design provides more control and stability, especially in rough terrain, by eliminating scrub. Wheels move rearward as they move up and down producing a smoother ride than the competition, and does not steer from the rear. Plus, TTI has 75% fewer parts than competitive designs and significantly decreases tire wear

MacPherson strut front suspension – Compact design is lightweight, and provides precise handling and a plush ride.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) frame – Rather than the common tubular box, the SST frame is a single spar that is lightweight, yet strong. It contributes to the Outlander’s benchmark power-to-weight ratio and low centre of gravity. And the unique design enables the ATV to “ski” over obstacles.

Multi-function digital gauge – New gauge is easy to read with even more functions, including:
  • Digital speedometer
  • Digital tachometer
  • Bar graph RPM
  • Numerical RPM
  • Odometer Trip meter
  • Diagnostic center
  • Gear position
  • Hour meter
  • Engine hour meter
  • 4x4 indicator
  • Temperature/Engine lights
  • Electronic fuel gauge
  • Low fuel light
  • Auto shut off after 15 minutes
  • High/low beam indicator

Painted Steel Rims – for a more high-tech style

25-inch (63cm) Ohtsu H-track Tire – Lightweight, great handling on
base model 500 and 400

Rear fascia, tail light and regulator cover – For a more finished appearance; protects rear wire harness, connectors

Inboard disc brake – Unique design reduces unsprung weight and helps centralize masses for more responsive handling. Also better protects against mud and debris.

Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) – Industry’s first standard anti-theft device. Electronic code in key must match code in ECU to start.

Front and rear steel racks – 100-pound (45 kg) capacity in front, 200 pounds (90 kg) in back.
