In 2011, BRP completes its side-by-side lineup with the Can-Am® Commander™ 800R and Commander 800R XT™. As with the Commander 1000 family, BRP’s Can-Am engineers and designers worked hard to create a side-by-side vehicle that sets a new industry benchmark in performance, handling, comfort and convenience.

Each model features the powerful 71-HP Rotax® 800 EFI V-Twin powerplant, which is only bested in power by the Rotax 1000 EFI V-Twin engine, meaning the Commander 800R is the most powerful* side-by-side under 1000 cc. Each of the Commander 800R models brings a host of innovative features to the industry, like: Dual-Level™ cargo bed; throttle-by-wire Intelligent Throttle Control system (iTC™), a 2-inch diameter, high-strength steel cage that is ROPS approved; Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension design, removable, free-standing full-bolster driver and passenger seats; a driver seat that requires no tools to adjust; quick-attach side nets and more. The Commander 800R line also features sleek styling with a strong Can-Am DNA presence.

Hellllooooooo......
Guess I'll be the first to post here :)
I'll be testing an 800RXT 10/16 at Speed World GP in N.W. Phoenix. Haven't heard much if anything about the 800. Just wondering if anyone has ordered an 800?
Thanks! :D

I though the 800's would not be available until Spring. That is great news as I also am ordering the 800.

I just ordered my 800XT about three weeks ago; should get it in February. Did any of you order the off road front bumper? I ordered mine with that bumper, but I didn't order the attachment that moves the winch out in front of the grill. I was wondering if the winch controls are hard to get to from behind the bumper?

I'm undecided about buying the 800 XT or the 1000XT. Are you 800 owners satisified with your 800's or should you have bought the 1000?
I want the camo but have been told they will not be available until 2012 due to a brittle plastic problem. Any replies would be appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks for your response. I called their main office and was told the camo will be at the dealers by the end of June.
