Investing in a Can Am Commander roof is one of the smarter ways to spend money when accessorizing your BRP-branded rig. Riders in southern areas of our country can use them to keep the sun off themselves in their Can-Am’s interior, while those of us in the north deploy the things to keep at bay whatever misery is currently falling out of the sky.
If you ride in any part of the country that gets more than a few inches of rain per year, you’ll appreciate a Can-Am Commander windshield. Sure, you’ve got a visored lid on your noggin or, at the very least, a set of goggles to go with that open-faced brain bucket. Both of these will technically keep mud and water out of your eyes, but it is still a trial and a half to mop your face every time you pass through a puddle.
BRP has officially opened its new manufacturing facility in Querétaro, Mexico. This facility assemble Rotax engines for BRPs Can-Am off-road vehicles and assemble the Sea-Do Spark watercraft and manufacturer composite hulls decks for Sea-Doo watercraft. By 2015, the entire Sea-Doo watercraft line-up will be produced in the Querétaro facility.
Once completed, the project will represent an investment of approximately US$958 million (C$100 million) and should employ some 1,100 people by 2015. As we reported in May of 2012, BRP estimated moving of PWC assembly to Mexico affected about 500 employees in Quebec.
