We bought this new Talon and had only 30 miles on it, riding around my shop and testing it. We have owned Honda products in the past and chose the Honda Talon because of its reputation and dependability. We had planned a trip to Moab and were looking forward to enjoying our experience on the trails there. On our FIRST local trail ride we went 100 ft. and the engine locked up! Loaded it up and returned it to dealer for repair...We were told the next week that it was a catastrophic engine failure! We have been in touch with Honda and with the dealer with no resolution as of yet. We expect a new engine or replacement of vehicle since this is such a NEW unit. It has been a month now and we are stuck waiting on Honda to give the dealer the go ahead and give the approval for one of the two options. It is frustrating and we are running out of patience. We are reserving our opinions according to how Honda handles this matter.
