One of the best parts of off-roading in America is how many different terrains we have to explore. Mountains, deserts, dunes, woods—it’s all a blast, but it’s hard to find one side-by-side that really is perfect for everything. Which is why we make two Honda Talon families—the R and the X.
The best parts don’t change, though. If you’re new to our lineup, here are the basics: The Talons are available in both two- and four-seat models, and with a choice of suspension options. All share the same powerful, Honda designed and built high-output engine, quick-shifting Automatic DCT Transmission, and exclusive i-4WD technology.
The differences between our two-seat models? The Talon 1000X is a little narrower and a little shorter (64 inches wide and an 87.6-inch wheelbase). It also uses a three-link rear suspension, which makes it a natural for owners who prioritize maneuverability and quick handling. It’s available in two versions, one with our standard shock absorbers and one with FOX Live Valve suspension for the best off-road handling you’ve ever experienced. Plenty of updates and improvements this year keep our entire Talon line out in front and pulling away.
