- Including two- and four-seaters, seven different trim levels are offered
- Standard versions get new Showa suspension for 2024
American Honda celebrated a new calendar year today by revealing its full line of sport side-by-sides, with seven versions offered across two- and four-seat configurations. Since its introduction in 2019, the Honda Talon has offered off-road enthusiasts a highly capable platform for navigating all types of challenging terrain, with X versions tailored for wooded two-track and R iterations ready for rugged desert trails. The Talons have been continuously updated and improved over the years, and the 2024 lineup is the most capable ever offered, with both standard and FOX Live Valve versions available—the former featuring new, premium Showa suspension that delivers a comfortable ride while still absorbing big hits.
“As the Talon platform enters its sixth year in production, Honda is pleased to offer such an accomplished collection of sport side-by-sides for 2024,” said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Racing and Experiential Marketing at American Honda. “In a relatively short period, the Talon has won over a growing contingent of customers who appreciate the platform’s ability to deliver not only performance, but also reliability and dependability to the off-road experience.”
Talon 1000 Two-Seat Versions
The two-seater Talon is offered in two basic configurations—the nimble-handling 1000X, which shines in tight technical terrain, and the 1000R, favoring high speeds and open terrain. Both the Talon 1000R and Talon 1000X are available with intelligent FOX Live Valve technology, featuring adaptive suspension capabilities. New for 2024, the non-Live Valve Talons are equipped with premium Showa suspension, the result of a close collaboration between Honda and Showa engineers, who focused on enhancing ride comfort and rebound control while maintaining the shocks’ bottoming resistance for bigger impacts. All are ideal for delivering off-road adventure for a driver and passenger.

Like the two-seaters, the four-seat Talon 1000 is offered in X and R configurations—the former shining in tight, technical conditions, and the latter favoring higher speeds and open terrain. Both the X and R four-seaters are available with high-tech self-adjusting FOX Live Valve suspension, while the X is also offered in a standard version that features new, premium Showa shock absorbers for 2024.
