2021 Honda Talon 1000R & 1000X FOX Live Valve Models

2021 Honda FOX Live Valve

Honda is truly "on the gas" with the Talon family, and we are excited to see Honda introduce these FOX Live Valve models! Yes, so far the FOX Live Valve has been regulated to the Talon 1000X-4, but no more. Today Honda rolled out FOX Live Valve versions of both the Talon 1000R and the Talon 1000X. Though it is no surprise to see 2-seat Live Valve models, it is great to see them because the Live Valve technology is truly great on the Talon 1000X-4. We drove the Live Value 1000X-4 back in October and loved it. Being able to allow the Live Valve system to make adjustments to the suspension in milliseconds depending on the terrain is pretty fantastic. It also allows for novice drivers to drive like experienced ones. On top of this, the Live Valve versions have LAUNCH CONTROL, and, as you can tell from the capital letters, we dig launch control on a side-by-side.

“Since last year’s launch of the Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve four-seat side-by-side, customers have asked about an electronic suspension system for the two-seat Talon models,” said Chris Cox, Manager of Experiential Marketing & PR at American Honda. “With the introduction of the Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve and Talon 1000X FOX Live Valve, Honda delivers while growing its sport side-by-side family and ensuring that there’s something for every type of off-road enthusiast. The Talon lineup has quickly taken the powersports industry by storm, and with the versatility of these two new models, we can’t wait to see where the next trails lead.”

TALON 1000X FOX LIVE VALVE

Designed to be maneuverable and precise, the Talon 1000X FOX Live Valve is based on the agile, maneuverable Talon 1000X two-seater platform. Measuring 64 inches wide, it features a 3 Link rear suspension system and FOX Podium 2.5 shocks with 14.4 inches of travel up front and 15.0 inches in the rear. Honda’s performance-tuned 999cc four-valve Unicam® parallel-twin engine works with a Dual Clutch Transmission to provide a thrilling ride, while Honda's I-4WD brake traction control system manages the amount of slip between the front wheels when in four-wheel drive, simplifying driving across challenging terrain.

TALON 1000R FOX LIVE VALVE

Sharing the same engine, frame and body as the entire two-seater Talon platform, the Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve uses the combination of high-tech FOX Live Valve technology and Honda’s 4+ Link rear suspension configuration to excel in situations where bump absorption and high-speed tracking are priority, while retaining comfort and versatility. A 68.4-inch width combines with FOX Podium 2.5 shocks offering 17.7 and 20.1 inches of travel front and rear, respectively, helping the vehicle shine in areas of the country where vast, open terrain is the norm. Speed, power and style are what the Talon 1000R FOX Live Valve is all about.
