Sit back, hang on tight, pin the throttle, and get ready to feed your buddies some serious roost: Honda Talons are the only side-by-sides offering both an automatic gear-driven transmission and launch mode. You won’t believe how fast and straight you’ll come off the line–and neither will other riders.
The convenience of an automatic with the strength, control, and efficiency of a manual. Use the paddle shifters, or kick back and let it do the thinking for you. Either way, you get genuine engine braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.
For 2022, we’ve completely redesigned the instrument display on all our Talon models. First, we’ve made it larger. But even more important, we’ve centered it up inline with the steering column, so it’s easier to read at a glance.
Together with Honda i-4WD, DCT delivers smooth power, true engine compression braking and optimal traction, giving you better control.
Pin it and hang on tight! With our DCT’s Launch Mode, beating your buddies off the line is a piece of cake.
This is tough, reliable Honda technology at its best, proven for years in hundreds of thousands of units.
Smooth power delivery means you can motor up and over large rocks at speeds that let you plan your next move.
Compression braking is key to control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals and not some add-on system, you get genuine compression braking—and more control.
By constantly monitoring power delivery to the drive wheels, the DCT makes the most of all available traction. Predictable, smooth power comes in handy in areas where traction is at a premium.
Choose between shifting modes like Drive, Sport and Manual. Whether you’re rolling down a flat gravel road, rock crawling, or dialing it up for a sportier ride, you’ll find one that’s right.
Because DCT is so efficient, more power gets to the ground. Plus, there are no belts to slip, break, or burn up.
Choose Manual Mode, and you can override the automatic shifting on the fly with a pair of paddle shifters mounted right on the steering column.
Available on the Talon 1000X, our Automatic DCT delivers huge advantages in performance and ride character.LEARN MORE
Sport side-by-sides need power, and you’re sure to find the Talon 1000X offers plenty of it. The Talon 1000X’s 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin delivers the kind of powerful torque and quick-revving horsepower you’d expect from a flagship sport model, but is equally responsive in lower revs and in the critical midrange too. Set longitudinally in the chassis and managed by our sophisticated PGM-FI engine-mapping system, it delivers the kind of refinement no other side-by-side can match.
The Talon 1000X FOX Live Valve features FOX Live Valve suspension with 2.5-inch shocks on all four wheels. The system adjusts damping on each shock independently, automatically, and up to 200 times a second for superior ride quality and less pitch and roll over all terrain.
The convenience of an automatic with the strength, control, and efficiency of a manual, our Honda gear-driven DCT lets you drive the way you want. Choose between manual mode or fully automatic. Plus, the addition of Sport Mode increases the fun, shifting at higher RPM for a spirited, full-performance driving experience. DCT puts you in control as to what engine speed you want, and what gear ratio. Or you can let it do all the thinking for you. In addition, you also get genuine engine braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.
The Talon 1000X’s Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing, and meets ISO’s rollover protection standard. The standard-equipment hard doors and quick-clip side nets help keep debris from entering the cabin. Auto-style three-point seatbelts are equipped with an emergency locking retractor mechanism to help optimize passenger security. (The Talon 1000X’s seats are also four-point compatible for competition use.)
