    That's about it so far. Honda applied for a trademark name "Talon" in the SxS category.

    If Honda enters the sport segment I predict their first step will be a model to compete, or attempt to complete, with the General and Commander. I just can't see them doing what it would take (compromising standards) to make a truly completive machine to the top line Polaris RZRs. Maybe they can do something in the lower lines like the 50" segment. Still, after seeing how they fell so short with the P-1000 compared to existing competition, I am not holding my breath.

    2013 XP 800 Ranger, 3 2017 Polaris 570 Full Sizes. All doomed for hard ranch work, long hours and rough conditions. 5 years or bust!

    Seth, Have you heard anymore about the rumored "Talon"?

    Sure interesting seeing what the mfg's are putting out these days and how they have gotten much more comparable.

    Honda keeps applying for a patents for things (like a 5 link suspension) that make it seem like something is on the horizon, but haven't heard a thing. They better hurry because my eyes have been shifting towards Can Am and Yamaha.

    I've been treated well by my Japanese engines my entire life. I've been sticking with those. My Rotax engines have been really good too though, so I'm willing to put myself into a Can Am.

    2017 Can Am Commander 800 DPS

    if you were closer I'd let you test drive mine on the trails for a while.
    The guy who bought my 500 is selling it to get a can am commander.
    Only thing I miss about the 500 is I trusted it. I think thats because I owned it so long. I'd of drove that thing anywhere and back

    If I get a new machine I'll keep the Honda. It's a workhorse and I need it to plow and tug boats around.
