    Looking good! The neon yellow & red appears to be the longer wheelbase version for desert running the 5 link suspension system with 20" travel. The blue & gray appears to be the shorter wheelbase version with the 3 link suspension and 18" of travel for trails.

    Pretty slick looking, I am assuming the yellow and blue are ready for transport and cranked down a little as the red looks to have a little more clearance. Could be optical illusions

    I tell you what, if this truly is the Talon I’m quite happy with the looks. Now the key thing is how the performance is going to be. That and how much does it weight. That’s one of the biggest set back the new wildcat xx has. It’s got a sting engine but the weight of the machine makes it subpar to the rest of the competition.

    Seats look like they have slots for over the shoulder portion of 4/5 point belts.

    I HOPE there are a LOT of Honda Signature Accessories that we’re originally part of the design. Need to be to compete these days in the sport market.

    Either that or Honda is gonna have to hire @joeymt33 as their “hillbilly adapto fit engineer in residence”

    I would bet you a C-Note the engineers had a 999cc Trophy truck designed and then the bean counters and size of the average buyers budget had them pull cost out to meet a much lower build cost.

    I’m digging the red myself.

    Probably so.

    They (the photographer and source of the photos) chose to make a stupid decision. They know better, if not they will probably have learned a valuable life lesson. Especially if the didn’t delete all the metadata from the photos.

    I have been in quite a few places where photos are prohibited, you just don’t take them, then you’re not able to accidentally or on purpose share something you ought not.

    My question is do YOU wish you’d waited on the specs for these?

    It will be a great machine but it’s way behind the competition. If I can get ahold of one then I may change my mind.

    I wonder if it was leaked on purpose?
