Honda Side by Side Guide
Talon - Pioneer - Big Red

The Honda Side by Side model line continues to expand with the introduction of the pure sport Talon X and Talon R.

The shorter and narrower X model is aimed at the driver that enjoys tighter trails. The R is for those that like higher speeds and more open spaces. It's longer, wider, and has more suspension travel. 

Honda will also offer more than 40 accessories so it will be easy to personalize your Talon.

The first Honda Side by Side model, the Big Red, wasn't a big seller. But Honda has since refocused and released a full line of Pioneer side by side models. From the entry level Pioneer 500 to the newest five seat Pioneer 1000-5 LE with Honda's most advanced technology. 

We'll bring you the latest info on the newest models, plus coverage of the original Big Red.
