    The Havoc isn't to shabby either for a work/play rig!

    My buddy that rides with me all the time just bought the havoc x. Sold his wildcat after the overland adventure. Hasn't had it out yet.

    I looked at one a few months ago, it's got the Pioneer beat, except for the extra seating in the back.

    100% agree with this. I was just riding over the summer with a guy who bought a brand new RZR XP 1000, and I think he said he paid 14000 for it. I would say the the Talon needs to be able to be bought somewhere in that range, otherwise there will be too many people still buying rzrs.

    That's way too cheap, dealers are having to dump RZRs because they've flooded the market.

    Theres no way hell the Tallon will be 14k, even if Honda did people would still try to drag dealers down to 12 or 10. Dream on if you think a sport SXS that's serious will ever be under 18k.

    Besides if this thing is what its suppose to be, the RZR will be long forgotten in a few years. People are tired of fixing junk time and time again.

    I would think a 60" would need to be around 15-16 if they want to be competitive and try to start taking market share. People are more worried about pinching pennies and not getting what they dont think they need... heck look how many of us bought the pioneer 700 and sold it after 6 months, We were trying to be cheap. Honda is also so late to the game with the sport that Canam and Polaris have a huge following and have prices in that range. Enough people try to save money on base models, no power steering, etc. For 18k and a 60" SXS, it better be something special. This is assuming its 60" which would play into the Canam Sport and Rzr 900 market (which some trails are limited to 60" so i would assume they would pick this dimension)

    While I haven't had a ton of issues, I have defiantly learned that its better to buy a machines thats meant for how you want to ride, then buy a machine and try to modify it to how you want to ride. My next ride will be something thats made for my riding style and hopefully just need the basic add ones (roof, windshield, etc).

    Hey hey, that was me, except the 100 radio, 50 ozark trail, and cheap o light bar. But I had never had power steering until my 1000 so didnt know what I was missing. Now I wouldnt get something without it.

    There is also Supposed to be 2 versions. I can see the 5 link going for 20+, but I would assume their lower end version would start down near 15-16 to help gain market share.
