All 4 of 2021 Honda Talons are offered in striking updated colors. TALON 1000X With its 64.0-inch width, and suspension travel measuring 14.6 and 15.1 inches front and rear, respectively, the Talon 1000X is at its best on technical trails that reward maneuverability and precision, yet it performs admirably in a broad range of conditions. A three Link rear-suspension system and double-wishbone front design work with four 2.0-inch-body Fox Podium Quick Switch three shocks with 5/8-inch shafts, as well as a one-piece frame that delivers a controlled, confidence-inspiring ride by retaining consistent geometry even when pushed hard.

Like the 1000X, the Talon 1000R is amazingly adaptable to different conditions, but it’s particularly impressive where bump absorption and high-speed tracking are prioritized. That’s partially due to its 68.4-inch width (4.4 inches wider than its sibling), 92.7-inch wheelbase (5 inches longer), and suspension system; while the front has a double-wishbone layout, the rear is a four+ Link configuration, while the shocks are Fox Podium QS3 units with 2.5-inch bodies. At 17.7 and 20.1 inches front and rear, respectively, suspension travel is 3.1 and 5 inches more than on the 1000X.

Offered in a new Metallic Gray color, the Talon 1000X-4 is a four-seat sport side-by-side with a unique stadium rear-seating arrangement that places back passengers inboard and higher compared to the front seats, resulting in an engaging, social experience for everyone. The 1000X-4 has the same Fox Podium Quick Switch three shocks as the two-seat 1000X (allowing fast and simple 3-position adjustment), except those at the rear have 2.5-inch bodies.

Start with the Talon 1000X-4 platform, add semi-active electronic suspension developed in a collaboration between Honda, Fox, and Bosch, and the result is the Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve—a flagship 4-seat sport side-by-side that pushes the envelope in terms of technology and performance. The system, which features Sport and Normal suspension modes, crunches data from a multitude of sensors and adjusts all 4 shocks 16 times per second, resulting in an incredible ride and unmatched handling, with minimal body roll and stellar high-speed tracking in rough terrain. Front and rear travels are 14.4 and 15.0 inches, respectively, and all 4 shocks have 2.5-inch bodies.
