2020 Honda® Talon 1000RWIDE-OPEN FUN HAS JUST BEGUN.
East to west, north to south, America’s a big country with a lot of variety. Which is why our Talon family of sport side-by-sides just keeps growing. Our Honda Talons are available in both two- and four-seat models—probably the most anticipated side-by-sides ever. All share the same powerful, Talon-specific high-output engine, quick-shifting Automatic DCT Transmission, and exclusive I-4WD technology. Rider comfort? Nobody does it like Honda. Performance? We’ve built our reputation on it. The key differences between our two-seaters? The Talon 1000R has a longer wheelbase, a wider vehicle track, and more suspension travel than the Talon 1000X. It’s a perfect match for riders who tackle rugged, high-speed terrain. Proof positive that life is better, side by side.Features may include:
- POWERFUL 999cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
Sport side-by-sides need power, and you’re sure to find the new Talon 1000R offers plenty of it. The Talon 1000R’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.
- UNICAM CYLINDER HEAD DESIGN
The Talon 1000R’s 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin uses the same proven Unicam® cylinder head design found in our championship-winning CRF450R motocrosser. That helps make the engine more compact, which lets us position it for optimal weight distribution and ground clearance.
Roller-tip rocker arms in the Talon 1000R’s valve train help reduce engine friction, facilitate higher, faster revs, and contribute to more efficient engine operation and power. They’re another example of Honda refinement you may not see, but that you’ll feel with every ride.
