HOT SPECS // 2022 HONDA TALON 1000X-4/1000X-4 FOX LIVE VALVE

The 2022 Talons are finally here and improvements for the entire Talon family of sport UTVs include relocated instruments with improved visibility; extended shift paddles for easier manual gear changes; better mud protection via seat sealing; revised ignition timing for smoother transitions from deceleration to acceleration; updated styling; improved i-4WD and a pre-wired switch panel to facilitate installation of electronic accessories.

Honda’s four seaters, the Talon 1000X-4 and Talon 1000X-4 Fox Live Valve, join the 999cc eight-valve Unicam® parallel-twin engine and beltless 6 speed transmission with automatic and manual modes to a 64” wide chassis with a 28.8” longer wheelbase than the Talon 1000X. The transmission features sport and normal shift programs, and high and low range. The Fox live Valve model also has launch mode that allows full throttle acceleration from a standing start.

Honda’s computer controlled Fox Live Valve suspension delivers a smoother ride in slow and fast driving, and the system also offers better control and stability because it’s so aware and responds so quickly. Sensors monitor the engine, transmission, steering, brakes, G-forces and the vehicle’s angle and continuously adjust the suspension accordingly. The system firms the outside shocks during cornering, firms the front shocks during braking, and it even sets the suspension for smooth jump landings. In addition to instant automatic adjustability, Honda’s Live Valve suspension also offers two dashboard button-selectable modes, a comfort focused standard mode and sport mode for fast driving. The base model has Fox QS3 shocks with easy three position manual compression damping adjusters. Two inch shock bodies are used on the front and 2.5” bodies on the rear. A roof is standard equipment on both models.
