Found this video that lets you experience the Talon off-roading in 3D with a highly respected and achieved racer taking the wheel.

Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen and his wife Courtney were filmed driving Honda Talons for a virtual-reality simulator, which has been available to the public at a number of events since the vehicle’s unveiling. In the simulator, viewers watch the 3D video in a rumble seat that moves, vibrates and pivots in conjunction with the video. Honda is showcasing the 3D Talon experience, which lets you ride with Roczen in the Talon, at select Supercross events and the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows.

This video gives us a good sense of what its like inside the cockpit, though I'll have to wait on some seat time of my own. DCT sounds really good working its way through the gears.

This looks like the perfect stomping grounds for the Talon and its going to be a fantastic machine for those on the coast. These 360 off road videos are really neat, and it gives you a good perspective of riding shotgun.

Wish the quality was a bit better, video is very choppy for me. Would have preferred some proper HD drone footage of these things in action.

Am I the only one that things Honda has really been slacking with marketing the Talon? I've seen very few advertisements/promo videos since it was officially announced. Most of the videos up on YouTube still show it in camo.

why do marketing right away when Honda's sell themselves and should hold true in a booming segment. demographics are important here as well, we're more methodical about purchases unlike other groups

I think there are few people that are even aware that Honda has launched a new sports sxs, aside from enthusiasts like us. I agree that they don't need to spend a lot marketing anything wearing their badge, but greater interest in this new machine could mean more variants of it for the next generation.

Honda ATV guys that ride vehicles like the Pioneer are in the know last I checked but this will come as a shock to the rest of the industry. Eventually as people start shopping and weighing out options, the Talon will come up.

Once there are some official reviews and models arriving at dealers, you can bet there will be a huge jump in interest. A lot of early buyers are probably going to be those who are current owners of their ATV's.
