    I think Honda used to do that too. Then some one started throwing the images up on the interweb.

    Press release doesn’t say what year. With the history of release delays from Honda it Could be November 27, 2019. LOL

    They'll either tease or spill their guts on the stated date, then tell us our Sales representative will be in touch to set up ordering in Feb-Mar for June delivery. They'll only allocate us 1 of the most expensive models in red for the entire first month, Then we'll be able to order 1 of each model for the next 6 months till production stabilizes. All the while in those 6 months we'll get customers needing parts that aren't available for another 6 months.

    If the past has anything to look forward to.

    I have been tempted, I would want the low range kit with either the Rekluse clutch or SS (paddle shift). If the Talon isn't what I hope it is I'll be YXZ shopping.

    I've seen the havoc - in person.
    It's going to need a 3 year warranty.
    Kind of a toss up between the havoc and a Bristers Chuckwagon (as seen at Tractor Supply Co).

    Maybe I will wait till November

    Na. It's not at the expo. And Honda was hot about the leak. So they are being very careful.

    So, does that mean they have a weak entry into the sport model?

    As far as 1st year issues I believe the engine trans will be well sorted, they cant have another clutch issue.

    The patent images appear to have the engine far back enough to keep heat out of the cabin as much as possible.

    If anything the suspension would be the only place I could see issues arising, but Honda doesn't ever have suspension problems that warrant recalls or at all for that matter. I think the P1K has opened their eyes to seeing what SXS buyers expect (at least from everybody but Polaris) and will turn it up for this.

    That doesn't mean some dealers out there wont let stuff slip by that should never make it to the end users. That's where I believe a lot of the P1K odd issues have been coming from.

    You have not, the frames and a arms on the Textron are massive! Makes me think all the frame componits on my beloved Pioneer are going to snap sitting in the shop. Check out the trailing arms on the Wild Cat XXX, very different.

    Really? You been to a dealership? A friend of mine who I raced motocross for years with, manages a multi brand motor cycle dealer ship, carries the Textron in his line up. I would hate to go to a belt drive, but I think about all the money I've spent getting Rooster ready for searous woods riding, I could have bought a butt load of belts.
