Ready for Adventure: 2024 Honda Talon 1000 Series

Honda has unveiled its 2024 model year lineup for the Talon 1000, a series of sport side-by-sides known for their off-road prowess. Since its debut in 2019, the Talon range has established a reputation for navigating challenging terrain with ease. The 2024 offerings are the most advanced yet, featuring both standard and FOX Live Valve versions. Notably, the standard models now come equipped with a new Showa suspension system, aimed at improving ride comfort and handling large impacts.

Brandon Wilson, Manager of Racing and Experiential Marketing at American Honda, expressed pride in the Talon’s evolution: “As the Talon platform enters its sixth year in production, Honda is pleased to offer such an accomplished collection of sport side-by-sides for 2024. In a relatively short period, the Talon has won over a growing contingent of customers who appreciate the platform’s ability to deliver not only performance, but also reliability and dependability to the off-road experience.”

The two-seater Talon 1000 models are designed for different terrains. The 1000X excels in tight, technical areas, while the 1000R is better suited for high-speed, open terrain. Both the 1000R and 1000X models are available with FOX Live Valve technology, featuring adaptive suspension capabilities. The new non-Live Valve models now boast Showa suspension, a result of Honda’s collaboration with Showa engineers, enhancing ride comfort and control.

The color options for these models include Matte Abyss Black for both the Talon 1000R and 1000X, with the FOX Live Valve versions available in Pearl Red and Matte Navy Blue.
