999cc parallel twin engine

The performance-tuned 999cc Unicam® parallel-twin engine features a 270-degree cross-plane crankshaft. It is mounted longitudinally in the frame, eliminating unnecessary right angles in the driveline so that an efficient transfer of power to the rear wheels is possible, resulting in strong acceleration. High capacity cooling fan and radiator keep the engine operating within its optimum temperature range even in harsh conditions.

Optional Fox Live valve suspension

The system constantly monitors variables including compression speed, steering, braking, throttle position, rpm, vehicle weight, selected gear, vehicle speed and orientation. Leveraging advanced algorithms and a sophisticated five-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the system electronically adjusts the individual shock absorbers accordingly, with changes virtually instantaneous. That lets the suspension react fast to changing terrain and driver inputs to maximize handling and ride comfort.

Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

The Talon's six-speed DCT offers two fully automatic modes, "Drive" and "Sport". "Drive" allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm, for relaxed driving or smoother driving over rough terrain, and "Sport" holds gears longer, shifting up or down at higher rpm for more aggressive driving. There's also a "Manual" mode that gives you full control over the transmission, enabling you to change gears up or down via a pair of easily reachable, steering-column-mounted paddles, for heads-up driving.

Made for open terrain

The Talon 1000R and Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve models are built for high speed driving in wide-open spaces, with longer wheelbase, a wider track, and longer suspension travel compared to the Talon 1000X and Talon 1000X FOX Live valve models.


Honda's i-4WD is the powersports industry's first off-road brake traction control system (BTCS), and it has been specifically adapted to sport SXS use. It manages the amount of slip between left and right front wheels, applying torque to the one with greater grip. The result is excellent traction and tracking performance in tough off-road conditions, with reduced steer effort and kickback compared to a standard differential lock.

Electronic brakeforce distribution

The i-4WD system incorporates Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, that strategically applies braking force to optimize stability under braking, minimizing rear-chassis lift when in two-wheel drive.

Launch mode

Launch Mode enables wide-open-throttle starts from a dead stop, significantly reducing acceleration time and minimizing work for the driver, as the automatic transmission manages upshifts. Once forward movement is initiated, a control program monitors the sensors at all wheels and automatically reduces torque to low-traction wheels to keep the Talon straight, even on surfaces with uneven traction between the left and right tyres
