Reviews have been showing up online and as of recent, giving us a good look at both the R and X in action. The stress test seen below is worth watching for anyone still on the fence. Personally, it help me decide on the 1000X instead of the beefier 1000R, its just too much for me. Still lots of questions, answers and deeper analysis of the two is required, use this thread to post anything useful you find...


"Last week we put up our first impressions review article and video of the new 2019 Honda Talon 1000R and 1000X – the first ever Sport UTV from Honda. It seems that the off-road world is excited about Honda’s newest machine, but some people wanted to see the Talon in action and hear the engine scream – rather than listen to us talk about it. While our feelings our hurt, it’s completely understandable that you would want to more of an opportunity to watch the Honda Talon 1000R and 1000X do their thing. To make amends, we have put together a video made up entirely of clips of Talon in action. We broke up the video into two sections – the first shows off the 68-inch Honda Talon 1000R and the second is all about the narrower 64-inch Honda Talon 1000X."

Really impressed with how quiet the chassis is compared to other machines on the market. Don't hear any rattling or clunks, even as it goes over bumps and dips.

Careful, when manufactures organize events for publications to test their products, sometimes they don't reflect what consumers will be getting. Sometimes these opportunities are used to gain social proof before launch ;)

Trust other owners like yourself first.

The R did seem to be a bit more smooth through the whoops, but more people will probably lean to the X for regular trail riding. Now we just need to get some heads up comparisons to the YXZ and RZR.

I have a heavy foot and the YXZ1000R goes hard off the line, but the RZR has its perks too. It comes down to what you personally want and on that point, what do you want from a side by side?

Reliability is big, but so are the ergonomics. None of the machines we are seeing in this segment are the barebones UTV's from before. Aftermarket support will also be important as new owners look to customize and improve their rides.

First a machine that's easy to work on. Second good availability of replacement and aftermarket parts. I already know the Talon will be a blast to drive.

What does Amazon have to do with OEM part availability at a dealership? I am hoping that Honda has taken the proper steps to ensure there aren't a backlog of parts for launch. Not expecting there to be any major build quality issues or recalls early on.
