One addition to the 2020 Honda Talon lineup that had dealers buzzing last week at the dealer meeting at Texplex in Midlothian, Texas, was the technology that has gone into the Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve.
In expanding the Talon family to the four-seat market, Honda took the opportunity to introduce semi-active electronic suspension with the new Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve.
Sharing the same engine, frame and body as the other four-seat Talon, this flagship version benefits from a new collaboration between Honda, FOX and Bosch. The groundbreaking suspension system crunches data from a multitude of sensors and adjusts all four shocks 16 times per second for one of two drive-style choices (Normal and Sport).
The result is an incredible ride and unmatched handling, with minimal body roll and stellar high-speed tracking in rough terrain. Front and rear travel are 14.4 and 15.0 inches, respectively.
This model also comes standard with electronic Launch Mode for lightning-quick, full-throttle acceleration off the line.
