    UPDATE from HONDA at the AIMExpo today.
    Talon is set to be announced November 27th.

    Just in case you haven't been following along lately. HondaSxS.com acquired pictures of the Honda Talon a few months back against Honda's liking. These were quickly confirmed to be the first units off the pre-production line in South Carolina and were being crated up heading to a photo shoot.

    So what do we know about this TALON?

    • Same drivetrain as the Pioneer 1000.
    • 6 Speed DCT.
    • Paddle shifters
    • Bucket seats.
    • Cockpit seating with center shifter.
    • HP has been bumped up and is currently UNKNOWN.
    • Rear mounted engine.
    • Trailing arm suspension. 2 versions, 3 link and 5 link.
    • Expect 2 versions of the Talon. Like a Woods and Desert versions.
    • No 4 seater this year but expect one to follow.
    • I-4WD is not known.
    • Not expecting a 50" Talon currently.
    • Availability early spring.

    Definitely like the color scheme of the Blue & Gray trail model. But also like the red longer wheelbase version too. Gonna be a tough choice next spring which version to choose. The longer wheelbase would definitely help on the toughest trails with the bigger steep rock ledges to negotiate.

    Anyone else find it odd they did not use the name?
    Maybe they will pull a fast one and change the name?

    Could be, from few photos seen the only reference to Talon is the door decals. Still though just like the Pioneer or Fourtrax names there are multiple models. Going along those lines I predict it will be the Talon model line up with the trails version something like Talon 1000X and a race or desert version as Talon 1000R
