The 2010 Can-Am Commander is Not Nearly as Cool as We Were Hoping

BRP hinted last week that it would be entering the side-by-side market with its Can-Am brand. This lead to our speculation on what the company could have up its sleeve as they stated they wanted to be a leader in a new market segment, and have a penchant for thinking outside of the box. Seeing as how the Can-Am Spyder took a whole new meaning to what riding a motorcycle/trike can be like, we expected the same lineage in the Can-Am SxS. That seems fairly obvious, right? Oh how we were wrong. Horribly, horribly, horribly wrong.

BRP has announced today that they bring out five side-by-side models, dubbed the Commander (800, 800 XT, 1000, 1000 XT and 1000 X). Congrats on making a product that competes directly with four other offerings from larger brands Can-Am. We’re sure the Commander is a hoot and a holler, but we were expecting something a little bit more…different.
