    Honda has launched their main teaser page for the upcoming sport SxS.
    LIFE IS BETTER - https://powersports.honda.com/lifeisbetter.aspx

    Currently, it only showcases these 4 images in rotation along with a Get Ready, It's coming. Link where you can register for update notifications.

    Will it be named the "TALON"?
    We have many rumors, backed with trademarks suggesting the newest machine will be called the Honda Talon. But recent indications from some behind the scenes sources mention that one key aspect from all the current guesses, including the recent image leeks may be wrong. With the image leaks, Honda has issued a FULL LOCKDOWN on all information.

    Top media was invited to a pre-viewing at AIMExpo?
    Source says Honda had an ultra-secret meeting with several top media outlets to discuss the upcoming release. WAS THE "TALON" THERE? We haven't a clue and won't know until 11/27. Any leak about discussions or additional images will lead to media rejection from Honda. It would be best for them to keep their mouth shut for sure!

    SPECS STILL UNKNOWN!
    Any specs for this unit is currently unknown. There are many people throwing guesses of which include a turbo, supercharger, portals, built in beer cooler. All the info available can be seen in the Talon picture leeks and other patent info HondaSxS.com has collected. I'm afraid, you will have to wait until 11/27 to find out more info. Until then, we will keep our eyes out. Never know!

    This has been a test of the Honda Customer Base intrest network. Had this been an actual life is better SXS announcement you would have seen photos and videos with instructions on how to enjoy your new Honda SXS making life better.

    I agree. Hp numbers are such bulls*** and leaves a lot on the table to question. Honda has never had a good ratio in their cars.
    I’m sure they left a lot out on the Pioneer to allow the engine to gain and complete. Hopefully enough swaps over to entice the aftermarket world to build for both. I’m really excited to see what all this brings on.

    One could only wish! Hell, the aftermarket still hasn't FULLY accepted the 700 or 1000. When you see cabella's, sportsmans guide or northern tool offering accessories then you know you've got the world's attention.

    I'm sure that people who published spy photos first won't get invited. :p

    It’s all kind of a game anyway. Everything adds hype and the more secretive everything is makes people need it more. Slow release once it’s out does the same thing, Americans don’t like being told no lol.

    Looks like I'm going to have to. Was thinking Nikola Motors. (at that link. :28 is the best part)

    And UTVAction might have seen it, but that post says nothing at all about it.

    Anyone click to see the price on that nikola? The base model is 28k and the top of the line was over 60k. Call me cheap, but it makes me like my toys that are paid for in full all that much more.

    And who's got 3 hrs to wait for the next trail ride or race? Especially if his buddy's have gassers. Can you strap a generator in the back and charge on the go?

    At least people with electric cars choose Honda jumper cables.
