2021 Talon 1000X

Description

High-performance engine

The Talon boasts a 999 cc, quick revving, naturally-aspirated, parallel twin engine which builds off years of experience with the Pioneer 1000 and the Africa Twin. From the shared 999 cc base platform, the Talons engine has been updated, refined and tuned to provide increased performance while maintaining Honda engine durability; essentially purpose-built for the Talon 1000X.

Unicam head design

Engineers have adopted the Unicam head design with its low-friction roller rocker arms from the CRF motocross bikes, and have tuned the exhaust to create a sound like no other – especially when it’s at full throttle.

Smart transmission

Connected to the 999 cc engine is a fully-automatic six-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission. The transmission’s computer uses throttle position, RPM, and brake input to establish driving style. For instance if you are an "aggressive-style driver" the character will be adjusted to be more exciting by allowing the engine to rev higher as it moves through the gears.

Quick shift

Prior year model shown. The Dual Clutch Transmission offers quick and seamless shifts between gears. Don't like the gear selected in Automatic mode? Paddle shifters allow you to override the selected gear at any point and the transmission seamlessly drop back into Automatic mode. Want more control? Switch into Manual mode and use the paddle shifters to fly through the gears.

High and Low range sub-transmission

Talon is the industry’s first sport side-by-side to offer a gear-driven transmission with a high and low-range. For challenging terrain, drivers can choose between two traction settings. The Low Range Mode reduces the transmission’s gear ratio through a sub-transmission like a four-wheel drive truck. The transmission still shifts through all six gears, giving maximum engine torque and braking for hills and technical terrain.

Intelligent 4WD (I-4WD)

Prior year model shown. The Talon 1000X includes a suite of stability assist features designed to make your ride safer, easier and more fun. Using technology developed for cars and trucks, this includes Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). When the intelligent 4WD control (I-4WD) is engaged using the dashboard-mounted switch, BTCS applies additional drive to the tire with more grip, providing better traction. EBD automatically optimizes front and rear braking power to the conditions, making slowing down or coming to a stop more efficient and stable.

Hill Start Assist (HSA)

Prior year model shown. Getting going when you’re stopped on a hill can be a bit of an adventure. That’s why the Talon 1000X comes standard with Hill Start Assist (HSA). Activated with a dashmounted switch, HSA automatically maintains sufficient brake pressure so you can move your foot to the gas pedal and you’re under way. No more need to two-foot it or heel-and-toe shifting when conquering steep hills - meaning no rollback.
