Can-Am has added to its Defender UTV/side by side range for 2020, with the arrival of the Pro HD-10.

Featuring a 1.8m cargo bed with a 435kg carrying capacity, the machine also has a low level storage box accessible from both sides of the vehicle.

Power is provided by an 82hp, v-twin, fuel-injected Rotax engine that is said to be strong and smooth, and the frame has had a complete refresh. 

The new model builds on the Defender’s reputation for toughness and capability, says BRP’s senior vice-president for global products, BRP, Bernard Guy.

“The utility/recreational segment for off road vehicles is growing each year, so we are committed as ever to product innovation that provides the best solutions for hard work.”

The PRO HD-10 is configured to offer 1134kg towing capacity via a two-inch receiver and can transport three adult passengers. 

The unit also uses the Pro-Torq transmission with a quick response system to enhance low speed driving.
