    f***ing dumb.... between the recalls, the lawsuits and the lack of product. It’s really hard to want to stand behind Honda these days!

    As long as abusive peeps get the first few units I'm good with that. I want some real world feed back so I know what I might want to watch for when I end up buying mine.

    Good point! I will wait for the third year of production before I would even look at buying a Talon and by then I'll probably have a RZR RS-1 1000.

    Yes.. and the fact that they only want those limited units out there in the beginning tells me they don’t fully trust their own product!

    My Pioneer 1000 is frame number 24 and so far I had to change a shift cable and one exhaust mount rubber a bit before 12,000 miles. $30.00 in parts. I'm at 17,500 and some miles now. It runs like new in every way. I'm getting a Talon R asap plus I'm too old to wait on anything.

    For whatever reason Honda is always amazed when a highly anticipated model gets a ton of orders.

    Take the Monkey for instance, when my GM said he could sell 40 of them, our sales rep thought he was crazy. We've sold the 3 we've gotten, 1 of them sold the day after it hit the floor. I believe if we had 10 of them, they wouldn't last very long. I understand they don't want to over extend their facilities or have product sitting around collecting dust. But come on, your first sport UTV that people have been crying for and your surprised the amount of orders that were submitted? Please.

    It’s business, they’re going to release just enough to keep the demand as high as possible in order to realize a full margin until they’ve recovered enough costs to pare down the margin and start making up the difference in parts.

    Honda told us orders exceeded planned production by 2100 units.

    We're getting a Red R and X the first week of April, then a couple weeks later a Blue X. Then nothing till the end of May, that's when the first Green R shows up.

    So looks like we wont be breaking any sales records.

    I have an early reservation but am having 2nd thoughts now. It really doesn’t look like Honda is serious about competing. The limited production could reduce aftermarket parts availability and if I was a dealer I wouldn’t order many accessories. I’m also uneasy about the gearing vs tire sizes. Just as 32’s and larger are trending Honda comes out with 28’s and the comment that “you can run 30’s”.
    Seriously, you have to wonder what they are thinking?

    I'm not sure why 32's are considered trending.. Driving in trails that limit width would eliminate the use huge tires.. I would say Honda wants people to keep them stock (tire and suspension) to get the full enjoyment out of the vehicle.But then again.. I see no use in Portals either... If you want to drive in deep water, get a boat, not a SXS... Just my opinion.

    32"s are taller not wider. Like it or not the Talon is competing with the other leaders like Polaris. Taller tires equal more ground clearance and smooth terrain as they bridge rocks or gaps better. Several factory models come with 32's and many people upgrade to them. If you want to compare the Talon to other Honda SxS's fine but that wasn't Honda's goal. I have a very nice Polaris XP1K and that's my comparison and reference point.
