800R V-Twin Power is awesome.
Kayaba shocks make this machine handle like it's on rails.
Wheels are bullet proof, but light, and you will have a hard time bending one.
Skid plate is very functional.
X package is a great way to get your atv decked with all the trimmings.
Need to address the cvt snorkel if you plan on running in deep mud or water. This year there is a sock over the inlet side which keeps debris out, but if you in water over your inlet you will have issues.
2009 has brought us another Can-Am Renegade 800 that virtually rocks right out of the box. The improved power of the 800R is easily noticeable by the seat of the pants feel.
There is only one thing I might add to the Renegade 800R X package, and that would be a Warn winch for those times when you feel the need to explore that deep dark muddy spot that nobody else dares to try out.
If you are an aggressive rider like I am told that I am, the Renegade X package is the way to go. If you prefer a milder driving but would like the power of the 800R motor then you can opt for the base Can-Am Renegade 800R model. If the 800R is a little too much power for you then Can-Am has the 500 Renegade for you, which for a 500 rocks.
Value wise if you are going to add different wheels, shocks, skid plate, etc. to your atv it is a no-brainer to go for the X Package.
It comes to no surprise that I get asked which atv is my favorite to ride, and that answer is very easy. If I had only one atv to ride it would be the Can-Am Renegade. This atv does every type of riding that I like to do and it does it very well.
From the excellent suspension, to the awesome v-twin power this atv will get your heart pumping and bring a smile to your face every time you ride it.
I have run this atv in sand, mud, hard pack, and the occasional burst down the black top and I am impressed at how well it tackles all with style.
If you are looking for the same type of power but need more room for storage and also more fender for mud protection, Can-Am has you covered with the Outlander models.
The bottom line is that I would highly recommend taking a look at what Can-Am has to offer you if you are in the market for an off road vehicle.
