    Did they pull this off the ideas list???? I swear someone said on here they should come designed with tie down points.

    RECOVERY HOOK POINT
    Built in to the Talon 1000R’s chassis design, this attaching point makes it easy to secure your Talon 1000R for transport, and also makes it easy to hook up a recovery strap when your buddy on some other brand of side-by-side gets stuck. Make him buy you lunch as a payback.

    Looks like they have learned several things through the Pioneer R&D effort the likes of CumminsPusher did for them...

    ENGINE AIR INTAKE
    To get the most out of your engine, you need the best air going into it. That’s why we positioned the air filter up high over the engine in the rear, and the air intake off to the side. It helps ensure a clean air supply, even at deeper fording depths.

    No kidding but the bumbling VP and other guy stumbling around years and facts is embarrassing; I'm a Plumbing Contractor and could have set up a product presentation for this particular product a million times better than those clowns did!

    BTW, I was so sure I wasn't buying a Talon this year, I bought two 2018 Pioneers.

    I hate the doors, means you'll have to either buy a kit or aftermarket to keep mud and dust out where I ride and, the Cam Am / RZR 'ish back area is very disappointing. I'll wait till they put out the "Polaris General style" in about 2 years to buy one, after they do the 4 seater next year with the same engine. Wanna bet?

    WTH is all the crying about. Dang, I like them. They look good, have plenty of suspension AND power. 114hp is waaay plenty unless maybe you are racing in the desert. Matters not to me through, as much as I like them I will not be able to buy another anytime soon. They will have plenty of time to work the bugs out of them ...... lol

    Yeah the speakers were lame, but I did not watch it just to hear what some dophus had to say. I ignore their DA, and looked at the machine.

    How did you see it behind the cameras and 12 reporters standing in front of it? I had a better look a year ago on the spy photo's.

    Looks like it's an RZR with a modified Pioneer body without the bed and LE diffs, I do like it but I was expecting to see a turbo.

    SuperATV will have to make reverse wheels so that I can fit a set of Portals on that 1000R :)

    UTVGUIDE did a way better article than the o Honda presentation, even our dealer video had less info then I expected for a new model
    I'm impressed with the overall machine, do have a few quibbles.

    The dash: It's time to give up this simple, fits everything crap. Make it sporty looking and awesome.

    Fox QS3: Screw this soft, mid, hard crap. Just throw a fully adjustable shock on the dang thing.

    As far as the doors go, that seems par for the course, RZRs have the giant ass hole in the forward lower position. I'm pouring over the UTVGUIDE pictures to see what I can find. So far the air filter looks huge !!

    One of the links that has been posted, was from an 3rd party article that stated 114hp.

    I just wanted a decent Sporty UTV with no CVT and a locking diff. But no, it has a lot of electronics to control the 4wd instead of keeping it simple. Download the large image and look at all of those electric connectors! that stuff will not like getting dunked (what will that be like after 10 years). I know someone with the 1k will preach on about how cool I-4wd is, but I would rather have driver involvement, that's why we all like the paddle shifters.

    2019 Talon 1000R

    Does anyone know about power steering? I read it had manual? (EDIT: I see a motor near the steering shaft in one image)

    I hope this is priced right...
