How to Fix the Honda Talon

Everything wrong with the Talon, and how we’d fix it.

Any day we can spend some time behind the wheel of the Honda Talon is a good one. The dual-clutch sport side-by-side has been a staple of the market for years, offering big features at a bargain price. But while the Talon brough two big firsts to side-by-sides with its Live Valve active suspension and quick-shifting gearbox, the market has more than caught up. We’ve noticed a few areas where the Talon has grown long in the tooth compared to its rivals, which is why we put out our latest video: Everything Wrong with the Honda Talon.

In it, we go over the things that bug us the most about Honda’s ripper. Surprising no one, the excellent engine and gearbox don’t make the list, but how those two units are controlled sure do. What else would we change? You’ll have to check out the video to find out. Hit us up in the comments to let us know if there’s anything we’ve forgotten. You can also check out our buyer’s guide for more information on one of the best side-by-sides for the money, or head over to our YouTube channel for more Talon content.
