Manufactured 1973-1987 by Bombardier.
In 1970, Bombardier created the Can-Am marque. They employed Gary Robinson as head the design team, along with former World Motocross champion Jeff Smith. Their first machines were presented in 1973, all two-strokes, and four-stroke models soon followed. The engines were by Rotax of Austria, a company which Bombardier owned.
Military models were built in Britain by Armstrong Competition Motorcycles and were sold to the British Army, but sales in America were relatively slow.
