    Yes, they need to be priced with competitive models to really make and impression on the market. I hope they realize that. I'm on my dealers list for a Talon pending pricing. If it's priced in the 18-20k+ range, It really wouldn't make sense to purchase over other makes even though I would prefer a Honda. A Crossover model would be awesome, but I have waited long enough for the Talon and I think Honda actually considers their Pioneer 1000 a sport utility.
    Love my P500, but I'm ready for some more power and this old man could use a more comfortable interior and smoother ride!

    These are the main reasons I am considering a change. I am ok with the ride (after W.E. shocks) but 6" of travel just isn't enough for me anymore.

    Owe I hear ya , I was really hoping for a Wolverine type machine(recreational) but I'm not disappointed in what they (Honda) has done with the Talon , I just need it to be within my price range.

    I won't be buying until 2020 anyhow , so I am hoping to get a new 1 yr. Old model when the time comes , if supply and demand doesn't get out of control....lol

    It may be worth more, but part of my point is they need to prove it.

    What I sell is more expensive than most of my competitors, BUT our service is second to none, and our product is top tier. I have to show that extra value but most are willing to pay the difference.

    We will see, I just don't think Honda is going to sell near as many at 20 as they would at 16ish, with the market as competitive as it is and Polaris giving away machines to get service. Honda can't give them away because they have been too reliable to make money off the repairs. (@JTW axle sales excluded)
