Whoa, not the way I expected to start this Sunday…. but here we are!
Our friends over from HondaSXS.com have leaked the MOTHERLODE of pics of the new HONDA TALON!!!!
We haven’t talked about it much because simply there wasn’t much to go on, but here’s the pics:
From the pics we honestly can’t tell much, but here’s our observations:
-DCT TRANSMISSION! You can see the paddles on the green machine!
-2 different models, green appears to be a bit wider and the blue is not as wide. Possibly more suspension travel on the green machine as well.
-Front dual a-arms, rear trailing arms with radius rods. We’re guessing 18″ front and 20″ rear travel on the “big boy”
-Longer wheelbase (probably between 90 and 95 inches), somewhere between a XP1000 and a Wildcat X
-Shocks appear to be dual rates up front and likely dual or triple rates in the rear, likely 2.5″ bodies that appear to be Walker Evans
-Sport seats with holes for 4-point harnesses (Get your best deal on Simpson’s over at SXSBlogParts.com)
-Laid back seating position
-3/4 doors with integrated door nets (maybe a new standard safety feature?)
-6 point cage with the c-pillar being integrated into a rear bumper possibly, standard plastic roof
-Front mounted radiator
-27 or 28 inch tires
-Totally new design, taking cues from literally every popular design out there and putting it together in a Honda way
So that’s it folks! Do you notice anything else? Are you as excited and as blown away as we are?!
