    I’ve been waiting for the Talon for a while and was willing to pay a bit of a premium for it. Talked with dealer today, said he would be less than MSRP but didn’t have all the info from Honda to give a price. Unlikely that it will come down to the 17-18k that I’m looking for. Looks like I’ll run the mighty P500 another year and wait for the demand to fall.

    If it was gonna have to pay MSRP I hate to say it, but I think I'd try to pick up a left over YXZ and pay the 1500 bucks for a gear reduction and/or rekluse if it was the slap stick. I have seen several around 14k advertised, so even with all that you are several thousand lower than the talon. They appear to be very similar machines...

    I'm sure the Talon pricing will settle inline with the YXZ when the dust settles though. And I stand behind what I've said before: the Pioneer really does do everything but go over big bumps really fast AND smooth. If your willing to bring it down to 10mph when things get nasty, I really don't see the need for the extra suspension in the woods. I prefer the extra bed space and easy entry/exit that make it useable around the farm. 16k was a lot easier to swallow for a multi use machine vs a true trail-hawk.

    Dirt Trax TV is sponsored by Polaris and their main presenter said the Talon was the highest quality fit and finish of any SXS he's seen.

    But then again, look at what he probably is use to seeing.....

    We had a riding buddy's dad who purchased one and the doors split in two the 2nd week he had it. It had only been ridden 3 times in those 2 weeks. I got to see it upclose the first day he brought it out to the track to tool around in.

    It's a RZR with a dump bed, still s***, but the bed dumps now.

    Reminds me of the 1 time I rode at Rush, KY.

    Me on a 1987 Big Red with no rear brakes riding with 2 RZR 1000s and a Ranger 900.

    First RZR blows the diff backing off the trailer, 2nd one starts overheating and missing horribly. We managed to get them going for the rest of the day. Then the Ranger lost a wheel.

    Meanwhile I got stuck once on the "old Honda" and had to pull a RZR off a tree he backed onto. I now refuse to recognize that Polaris makes anything but junk and that's all my buddies except 2 have.

    Got price from my dealer today. $19,750 and $20,750, both includes everything but tax. Told him I'd pay a premium for a Honda, but not $5,000 more than the comparable competitors models. Told him to let me know when they can be bought in the 17k-18K range for the X.

    Anyone else get a firm price?

    I highly doubt Honda will ever drop the MSRP. They may offer rebates, but I'm sure that's the most.

    They need to sit on the shelf and cool for a while, not buying another first year!

    A XP RZR 1000 is $18,599. That's MSRP, I dont care what the dealer is selling it for.

    Polaris has flooded the market with crap and now everyone has laid eyes and ears on the Talon and that's why their giving RZRs away.

    Trust me the Talon will make everyone else change their attitude.

    Agreed, and I don't think they should drop MSRP either based on the comparables. But you can buy a YXZ (what I consider it's closest comparable) a lot cheaper than MSRP. It's just about waiting until the people with blank checks in hand run out. I think they will be reasonable in due time.

    But a forum member discount or rebate would be a nice bonus.

    The rumor is all Talon’s will have a roof thrown in for free if you mention seeing it here on the forum.

    This Is a perfect example of what I think you will hear alot of. "I sure do/did like that talon until I saw the price,then I went and bought a rzr or xyz and can put the extra money towards accesories." Money is the biggest factor for most people, and they may never know what there missing lol

    They'll spend that $5k on bearings, bushings, axles, suspensions arms and belts.
