2022 Honda® Talon 1000X
TAME EVERY TRAIL
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.
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.
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 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.
- FOX LIVE VALVE SUSPENSION
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.
- 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.
