2021 Honda® Talon 1000R WIDE-OPEN FUN FOR WIDE-OPEN SPACES
One size never fits all. And neither does one style. Off-roaders are individualists, and that means they want to do things their way. We hear you, and that’s why our Talon family of sport side-by-sides just keeps growing. The Talons are available in both two- and four-seat models, and with a choice of suspension options. All share the same powerful, Honda designed and built high-output engine, quick-shifting Automatic DCT Transmission, and exclusive i-4WD technology. Rider comfort? Nobody does it like Honda. Performance? We’ve built our reputation on it. The key differences between our two-seaters? The Talon 1000R has a longer wheelbase, a wider vehicle track, and more suspension travel than the Talon 1000X. It’s a perfect match for riders who tackle rugged, more wide open terrain.
- Launch Mode
Sit back, hang on tight, pin the throttle, and get ready to feed your buddies some serious roost: The FOX Live Valve-equipped Honda Talons are the only side-by-sides offering both an automatic transmission and launch mode. You won’t believe how fast and straight you’ll come off the lineand neither will the other guys.
- Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT)
The convenience of an automatic with the strength, control, and efficiency of a manual. Use the paddle shifters, or kick back and let it do the thinking for you. Either way, you get genuine engine braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.
Features may include:Engine
- Powerful 999CC Twin-Cylinder Engine
Sport side-by-sides need power, and you’re sure to find the Talon 1000R offers plenty of it. The Talon 1000R’s 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin delivers the kind of powerful torque and quick-revving horsepower you’d expect from a flagship sport model, but is equally responsive in lower revs and in the critical midrange too. Set longitudinally in the chassis and managed by Honda’s sophisticated PGM-FI engine-mapping system, it delivers a level of refinement no other side-by-side can matchChassis
- Chassis Dimensions
The Talon 1000R’s 92.7-inch wheelbase contributes to this sport side-by-side’s tracking, and also gives you a super-smooth ride. At 68.4 inches wide and longer than the Talon 1000X, it places an emphasis on high-speed tracking and gives excellent control in whoops and rough terrain.Drivetrain
- Automatic Six-Speed DCT Transmission
The convenience of an automatic with the strength, control, and efficiency of a manual, Honda’s Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) lets you drive the way you want. Choose between manual mode or fully automatic. Plus, the addition of Sport Mode increases the fun, shifting at higher RPMs for a spirited, full-performance driving experience. DCT puts you in control as to what engine speed you want, and what gear ratio. Or you can let it do all the thinking for you. In addition, you also get genuine compression braking and a more efficient power delivery than a belt-driven CVT.Design
- Driver/Passenger Protection
The Talon 1000R’s Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing, and meets ROHVA’s rollover protection standard. The standard-equipment hard doors and quick-clip side nets help keep debris from entering the cabin. Auto-style three-point seatbelts are equipped with an emergency locking retractor mechanism, to help optimize passenger security.
