Can-Am Unveils their 2018 Lineup

Is it that time of year already? Can-Am's 2018 vehicles are on their way and it looks like they're planning on pushing the X3 even further. The new X3 offerings are definitely the most noteworthy. They've got a few different 2018 X3 options including the 2018 X3 Turbo R which comes in at 172hp. That's pretty impressive but I wonder what we at SuperATV can get that number to once we start poking around at it. For the standard 2018 X3 Turbo, Can-Am got it to 120 hp and very competitively at just south of $20,000. That's gonna be hard to beat, but we'll have to wait a few months to see if Polaris can top Can-Am this year. Check out Can-Am's 2018 line up videos below, and give their full press release a read. What do yo think about all these specs? Do you think Polaris will be able to come out and stomp them, or do you think Can-Am is giving them a run for their money? Be sure to share your thoughts below! [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz1nXZpazCI?ecver=1] [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0mGKCijSh8?ecver=1]
