    I didn't really mean a 14k msrp, you just need to be able to get one for 14 or 15k. An 18k sticker would be fine as long as a year end clearance price is still 14-15k.

    I get these email ads daily on my phone from one dealer or another. I don't care what the msrp is as long the sale price is reasonable. I know Honda will get some sales at msrp, but in the long run it seems to me they'd get more sales with a reasonable msrp that would actually make those diehard rzr buyers even glance this direction.

    I've never owned a Polaris anything. But I've seen a lot of them run. I've seen a lot of them break. And there are a good amount of broken ones, but when I consider that like 90% of all the utvs where I ride are Polaris, and considering how hard they abuse them, I'd say it is an acceptable failure rate... probably not anymore than Honda's? I guess what I'm saying is, I would be surprised if the talon is really any better than a rzr or maverick, so Honda better make the price right.

    Even the power deficit isn't such a huge deal, everything but the YZX is belt driven. You lose much more HP though a belt drive, so realistically that 168HP is making it to the tires. If the Talon is only around 110HP, it should be faster than the equivalent RZR or whatever due to driveline loss.

    Hell the P1K can give a 900 or even 1000 Ranger a run with only 72 ; )

    My signature shows a history of changing out side by sides for the last few years but I will say, there were issues and I wanted out and up. Especially with the Polaris Rangers. My 2016 P1K EPS was me getting back into a Honda; we actually would call the Ranger "The Honda" as in: "where is the Honda, go get it" I always knew I wanted gear drive, just not the 700, I wanted full size. Then, I wanted the full roof (back seats are pure s***!) and yes an LE.

    I will definitely wait a year or two before I buy the new Talon. I've beta tested too many vehicles in the past!

    I think it will be great the first year plus I'm way too old to wait. I really didn't wait and have 33, 600 and some miles, half on my Pioneer 1000 and the other half on my 2016 Yamaha YXZ 1000. The guys with the Pioneer 1000 tested the engine package really good and got the clutch update. Honda has been testing the sport model for several years to get the suspension and chassis right. It will take another 6 months to get the 4 seater ready.

    I'll definitely wait at least until the 4 seater. I tried very hard back in August to look at all, and I did but, the belt drive and huge cost of the Can Am and Polaris for a belt drive side by side just didn't do it for me.

    Damn that’s good... would have been money ahead to just buy one of them.

    I believe the Talon will land like most Honda ATV/side by side products; that is, it will be more conservative (hp/speed) vs coming out with something that out runs, out jumps, etc the competition. Also, I don’t believe you will see any from the factory with snorkel kits, etc., but rather a very nice, highly reliable trail machine that folks will enjoy weekend and week out with minimal maintenance.

    We can count on the Talon being better then the RZR1000 in everyway including price. The RZR 1000 works great but it still has several problems and will need a lot of repair to get it to 10,000 miles. Since 2014 there has been a few improvements. The 14 and 15 had some major failures, the 16 on are better. My RZR 900 needed a lot of work and upgrades to improve reliability and it still had a lot of failures to get it to 11,000 miles.
