TWO WAYS TO SHARE THE FUN: THE TALON 1000X-4 AND TALON 1000X-4 FOX LIVE VALVE
One of the best parts of any side-by-side is sharing the fun with friends and family. And that’s where Honda’s Talon 1000X-4 models really shine. With four seats; there’s room for the whole crew. But here’s the biggest difference—these four-seat side-by-sides are done the Honda way; so those extra passengers get stadium seating and plush accommodations. Plus; there are two models: The Talon 1000X-4 features FOX Podium shocks with QS3 manual adjustors; while the Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve comes with a radical; self-adjusting suspension. Plus; Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve owners get some tasty extra features; like Honda’s launch mode.
The Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve is the only side-by-side offering both an automatic transmission and launch mode. You won’t believe how fast you’ll come off the lineâ€“and neither will the other guys.
Welcome to the best seats in the house: Because they sit nearly three inches higher and two inches closer to each other than the fronts; the Talon 1000X-4’s rear “Stadium Seating” lets passengers see more.
Features may include:
Sport side-by-sides need power; and you’re sure to find the new Talon 1000X-4’s offer plenty of it. The Talon’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 Honda’s sophisticated PGM-FI engine-mapping system; it delivers the kind of refinement no other side-by-side can match
The Talon 1000X-4 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 16 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; Honda’s 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 RPMs 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 compression braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.
The Talon’s Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing; and meets ROHVA’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.
