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…

Will it be a Kawasaki sport model? Maybe a turbo or 4-seat Wildcat XX? An electric UTV that mimics engine noises for more fun? It's hard to predict what will be next for the offroad world, but a brand we didn't recognize popped up on our radar not too long ago. Rebel West Powersports out of Gilbert, AZ appears to be attempting to make their mark with a…
