WHERE IS THE ALL-NEW HONDA TRX450R?!

We can't hide the truth. Our beloved sport ATV market has been taken over by roll cage equipped machines. Do we want to stick our noses up at the UTV market? Of course not! Those machines are a blast to drive, and get more people included in our favorite hobby: off-roading. But, if we are honest, we are very bummed out that the sport ATV market has fallen off the radar of most major manufacturers. In fact, Yamaha is the only remaining major manufacturer that offers a race ready 450 and a trail ready 700R straight axle sport…

EVO3 BATTERY POWER SYSTEM

 -- PRODUCT EVALUATION -- It has been months since you last fired up your pride and joy. Thick layers of dust coat the plastic, the gas in the tank might be sour and the chance of the battery even still holding a charge is weak. Oftentimes, we forget that a battery needs upkeep and a regular diet of electrons throughout its life cycle. On top of that, choosing the right type of battery can be tricky too. We went to Ballistic Performance Components to obtain their EVO3 Power System that includes a lithium iron…

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. We never imagined that there would be two models released at the same time! In addition to the 68.5 inch wide, 20-inch travel Talon 1000R, Honda used the same frame and 104-horsepower Talon engine package to create a true trail weapon named the Talon 1000X. The car’s exterior and interior specifications are all the same, but the 1000X double-wishbone front…

THE HONDA TALON IS A HOME RUN!

2019 Honda Talon 1000R Dirt Wheels is in Hurricane, Utah at the 2019 Honda Talon introduction. Today we tested this significant new machine at the famed Sand Hollow State Park riding area. Sand Hollow combines red sand dunes with slick-rock crawling. In between these extremes are sand trails that get exceptionally rough and whooped. That was especially true today since the area has been pounded with rain. Compounding the situation, many of the sandy trails are just a thin layer of sand over ledged rock, so you are…
