Designed to excel when bump absorption and high-speed tracking are the priority, the Talon 1000R shares 85% of its parts with the Talon 1000X, including the entire 999cc parallel-twin engine and one-piece frame, yet it diverges when it comes to vehicle width being 111.7mm wider than its sibling. It also has a longer wheelbase (130mm longer).
The Talon 1000R has a double-wishbone front-suspension layout and a 4+ Link rear configuration, while the shocks are 63.5mm body Fox Podium QS3 units that have 450mm and 510mm of front and rear suspension travel, respectively. The combination results in remarkable performance in diverse situations but is particularly impressive in high-speed, rough conditions.
- 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.
