2022 Honda® Talon 1000R Fox Live Valve
WELCOME TO THE OPEN CLASS: THE TALON 1000R, TALON 1000R FOX LIVE VALVE
Sport side-by-sides are just getting more and more popular every year. And our Honda Talon lineup keeps getting better and better every year too. Leading the way are our Talon 1000R and Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve, both with a long list of improvements for 2022.
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 gear-driven automatic DCT transmission, and exclusive i-4WD technology.
Because the Talon 1000R has a longer wheelbase, a wider vehicle track, and more suspension travel than our Talon 1000X, it’s a perfect match for riders who tackle rugged, wide-open terrain. And if you’re really on the gas, you’ll want to check out our Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve. Its active suspension gives it the best off-road handling you’ve ever experienced.
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 the other guys.
AUTOMATIC DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION (DCT)
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.
Features may include:
- POWERFUL 999cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
Sport side-by-sides need power, and you’re sure to find the 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 our sophisticated PGM-FI engine-mapping system, it delivers the kind of refinement no other side-by-side can match.
- FOX LIVE VALVE SUSPENSION
The Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve and Talon 1000R Special Edition feature 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
- AUTOMATIC SIX-SPEED DCT TRANSMISSION
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 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 engine braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.
- DRIVER/PASSENGER PROTECTION
The Talon 1000R’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 1000R’s seats are also four-point compatible for competition use.)
