They are black or yellow, with “Can-AM DS” and the engine size (70 or 90 cubic centimeters) is printed on both sides of the vehicle’s fairing. Model year 2008 through 2014 DS 70 ATVs fail to meet requirements pertaining to the unrestricted maximum speed of the vehicle. Model year 2008 through 2015 DS 70 and DS 90 ATVs fail to meet requirements pertaining to parking brakes.
