Honda Announces Two New Four-Seat Sport Side-by-Side Models

2020 Honda Talon family

Today during the kickoff of Power Lab 2019, a Honda Powersports dealer event held at TexPlex Park, Honda unveiled a pair of brand-new four-seat sport side-by-side models—the Talon™ 1000X-4 and Talon 1000X-4 FOX® Live Valve. Breaking cover just six months after the industry-disrupting announcement of the Talon 1000X and Talon 1000R two-seat models—and only three months since they hit the market—these new additions to the young Talon family advance off-road driving technology while opening the experience to additional family and friends.

The Power Lab event,
which featured a four-wheel-powersports focus, also saw Honda confirm the 2020
model-year return of the two-seat Talon 1000X and Talon 1000R, as well as the
popular multipurpose side-by-side family: the flagship Pioneer 1000,
middleweight Pioneer 700 and entry Pioneer 500.

"Since the
two-seat Talon models hit the market a few months ago, it's been fun to see how
ready customers were for a sport side-by-side touting Honda's legendary
refinement, durability and performance," said Chris Cox, American Honda's
Manager of Experiential Marketing/Public Relations. "By far the most
common request we've heard in that time is for the capability to carry
additional passengers, so it's gratifying to bring the Talon 1000X-4 and Talon
1000X-4 FOX Live Valve to market so quickly. Like their two-seater siblings,
these models introduce new technology to their category, and we're confident
that they'll set new standards as well. Now, more people than ever can
experience the fact that 'Life is Better Side-by-Side.'"

2020 Honda Talon 1000X-4

Based on the Talon
1000X two-seater but with a longer chassis and room for two more people, the
Talon 1000X-4 features stadium rear seating that positions the back passengers
inboard and higher than those in front, ensuring that everyone on board enjoys
an engaging, social experience. Powered by a performance-tuned version of
Honda's proven 999cc four-valve Unicam® parallel-twin engine, the Talon 1000X-4
features a high-tech Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) that efficiently puts
horsepower to the ground and gives drivers the ability to switch between drive
modes—full automatic, a more spirited "Sport" automatic that holds
higher rpm, and manual, with gear-changes accomplished via steering-column-mounted
paddle shifters. (The paddle shifters can also be used to override the
automatic modes.) FOX Podium Quick Switch 3 shocks allow fast and simple
three-position adjustment, with 14.6 and 15.0 inches of travel, front and rear
respectively. Of course other favorite Talon elements are carried over,
including I-4WD traction-aiding technology, hill-start assist and
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).

Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live

2020 Honda Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve

In expanding the Talon
family to the four-seat market, Honda took the opportunity to introduce
semi-active electronic suspension with the new Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve.
Sharing the same engine, frame and body as the other four-seat Talon, this
flagship version benefits from a new collaboration between Honda, FOX and
Bosch. The groundbreaking suspension system crunches data from a multitude of
sensors and adjusts all four shocks 16 times per second for one of two
drive-style choices (Normal and Sport). The result is an incredible ride and
unmatched handling, with minimal body roll and stellar high-speed tracking in
rough terrain. Front and rear travel are 14.4 and 15.0 inches, respectively.
This model also comes standard with electronic Launch Mode for lightning-quick,
full-throttle acceleration off the line.

Talon 1000X

2020 Honda Talon 1000X

The sport side-by-side that took the powersports world by storm is back for 2020. Built to excel in situations where precise changes of direction are paramount, the Talon 1000X employs 2.0-inch body FOX Podium Quick Switch 3 shocks actuated via double-wishbone front suspension and a 3-link rear-suspension system to deliver 14.6 and 15.1 inches of front and rear travel, respectively. Also returning are the 999cc parallel-twin, four-valve Unicam engine paired with a Dual Clutch Transmission that delivers the exhilaration of running through the gears—in one of two automatic modes, manually, or a combination (driving in automatic and using the steering-column-mounted paddles to override). In four-wheel drive, I-4WD—a Honda exclusive in powersports—uses the braking system to deliver more power to the front wheel that has traction.

Talon 1000R

2020 Honda Talon 1000R

Sharing the same engine, frame and body as the two-seat 1000X, the Talon 1000R uses larger, 2.5-inch body FOX QS3 shocks; a 4+link rear-suspension system and longer travel (17.7 and 20.1 inches front and rear, respectively), which combine with the wider footprint to deliver superb handling when driving through rough terrain at higher speeds. Like all Talon models, the 1000R was designed in Ohio and built in South Carolina, and it boasts legendary Honda durability, quality and reliability.
