2021 HONDA TALON 1000R FOX LIVE VALVE TURBO

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2021 HONDA TALON 1000R FOX LIVE VALVE TURBO Our enthusiasm for Honda’s announcement for the 2020 Talon Talon 1000X-4 Fox Live Valve was somewhat subdued.

2020 CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 TURBO

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 TURBO From the earliest introduction of the Can-Am Maverick X3 line, the byword has been” performance.” One year there was a normally aspirated model, but we never saw one.

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.
