I think the whole reason why they haven't introduced a 50' trail model is because that would make it more prone to tipping. A wider stance helps to keep it planted, even if that does restrict the number of trails it can be taken on.
There have been mentions that Honda may be considering a more trail oriented model sometime next year, but that will be dependent on early sales of the first two. Width restrictions can vary depending on your state and I know some impose a max of 50".
Its not something they should rush to market just to expand their offerings. They've taken the slow approach to introduce a sports sxs and its played to their advantage. Since it looks like they will be building a very limited number of Talons I expect they will sell through everything they produce. Need some video footage of the other colors already.
Honda should indeed rush these to market just to take advantage of the opportunity at hand. I think it also comes down to the economy still being good. If they hold out too long, they might find themselves in a bad economy even with good products.
I agree and these days with the amount of products being outsources it makes for something we can be happy about. Before, being built in America used be popular but now its rare but appreciate when it happens. However I don't expect it to last long with side by sides.
