  • 2024 Honda Talon named “Coolest Thing Made in SC,” out of 166 other products
  • 2024 Honda Talon sport side-by-side has also achieved success in sales and racing

Today during a ceremony held at the South Carolina State House, the 2024 Honda Talon sport side-by-side was named the “Coolest Thing Made in SC”—the top award in the third annual South Carolina Manufacturing Madness contest. Organized by the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance, the contest ran for four weeks, with the public voting on 166 nominated products that are produced in the state.

“Everyone at American Honda is thrilled for this recognition, particularly given the caliber of the competition,” said Travis Lee, Site Lead at Honda South Carolina Mfg. “Thank you to those who voted for Honda. In voting for Talon, you’re really voting for our most important asset—our associates. Without them, an award like this would not be possible, so thank you to the team in Timmonsville for all you do.”

Honda South Carolina Mfg. celebrated 25 years of building world-class powersports products in July 2023, having begun production of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in 1998. SCM currently employs more than 1,000 associates and is the exclusive global production home of Honda side-by-side vehicles, including the Pioneer multipurpose series and Talon sport models. Over the past quarter of a century, SCM associates have produced more than 3.8 million powersports products in Timmonsville.

“We’re very proud to build the Honda Talon in Timmonsville,” Lee continued. “We look forward to many more years of manufacturing popular—and cool—powersports products in South Carolina.”

Since it debuted for the 2019 model year, Honda’s Talon line has been a success in terms of both sales and racing, with class wins in the Baja 1000, Mint 400, the CHAMP short-course series and more. Available in seven different configurations, including four two-seaters and three four-seaters, the Talon family features first-in-category technology like a high-tech automatic dual-clutch transmission and i-4WD.
