PERFORMANCE

High-flow fuel injectors
Here’s a math lesson that’s anything but boring: More air plus more fuel equals more power. With the hot cam, throttle body and high-flow fuel injectors, the Talon’s engine is the total package for total off-road performance.

46mm throttle bore size
Complementing the Talon’s potent camshaft specs, our engineers also gave the engine twin 46mm bores for more airflow and better breathing. You’ll feel it the first time you floor the throttle, and you’ll hear it too, with the Talon’s throaty intake roar.

Powerful 999cc twin-cylinder engine
Sport side-by-sides need power, and you’re sure to find the Talon 1000’s all offer plenty of it. The Talon’s 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin delivers the kind of powerful torque and quick-revving horsepower you’d expect from a flagship sport model, but is equally responsive in lower revs and in the critical midrange too. Set longitudinally in the chassis and managed by Honda’s sophisticated PGM-FI engine-mapping system, it delivers the kind of refinement no other side-by-side can match. The Talon’s 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin uses the same proven Unicam® cylinder head design found in our championship-winning CRF450R motocrosser. That helps make the engine more compact, which lets us position it for optimal weight distribution and ground clearance.

Rubber-mount engine and exhaust
Some of the most impressive Talon features are those you’ll never see. In addition to the suspension and ground clearance, we rubber-mounted the engine and exhaust system to insulate the cabin against excessive vibration We also gave them four engine mounts to add strength under high-performance driving operation.

High-capacity cooling system
Rock crawling, deserts, dunes, and high-altitude operation can all challenge your side-by-side’s cooling system. That’s why we gave all our Talons a high-capacity system. Tested under some of the most arduous conditions we could find, you can rest assured your engine will remain calm, and collected when the going gets tough.

High lift, long duration camshaft
Giving the Talon’s engine a camshaft with high lift and long duration helps transform the engine. Better breathing helps the Talon make more power, and keeps that power coming all the way to redline.

Oil-jet-cooled pistons
Another invisible example of Honda’s race-winning engineering. Squirting oil up onto the underside of the Talon’s pistons help them run cooler and seal better. The combination lets the pistons lead an easier life and helps the engine make more power. The design also lets us use lighter pistons, for a faster-revving engine.

Tuned exhaust
The final part of the Talon’s balanced power equation: better breathing and more fuel delivery require an equally tuned exhaust system. The Talon delivers. Not only does it deliver some beautiful mechanical music, but it helps the engine deliver smooth, even power from partial throttle to wide-open running.
