2020 CAN-AM MAVERICK VS. HONDA TALON

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 CAN-AM MAVERICK VS. HONDA TALON. Can-Am and Honda make two of the newest and most impressive 1000cc, normally aspirated, trail-focused UTVs on the market. It seemed only natural to get them together for a rigorous comparison to see which one has the goods for trails, and to find out where they excelled. Can-Am sent the all-new 64-inch 2020 Maverick Sport X xc that starts at a price of $21,199. It faced off with the $19,999 Honda Talon 1000 X. Of the two available two-seat Talons,…

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 HONDA TALON 1000X-4 & 1000X-4 FOX LIVE VALVE We were in the room when Honda announced the 2020 Talon 1000X-4 and Talon 1000X-4 Fox Live Valve to the dealer network. There was no mistaking the dealers’ excitement; however, our enthusiasm was somewhat tempered by the announcement that the 1000X-4 siblings would be based on the shorter-travel 64-inch Talon 1000X rather than the long-travel, wider Talon R. A great percentage of long-wheelbase, four-seat sport UTVs are sold where…

20″ WHEELS & 35″ TIRES ON TALON

20" WHEELS & 35" TIRES ON TALON Down in Louisiana, there's a good deal of mud that you may come across while riding off-road.  4x4 quads with big mud tires are quite popular in the bayous and the same is true with UTVs as well.

The new Honda Talon wasn't at their shop for long before it began getting accessorized for the mud. This 1000R here…

2019 HONDA TALON

2019 HONDA TALON 1000X TEST When we started to hear that Honda would build a sport UTV, we assumed it would be a single model motivated by some version of the proven Pioneer power train.
