52 THE SHOP OCTOBER 2019 experience in a wide range of conditions," announces Powersports Business. Honda achieved a nearly flawless balance with its fully equipped Talon models— mastering advanced off-road driving tech- nology, while remaining a family-friendly option in the SXS sport market. "Thanks to a new working arrangement with FOX and Bosch, the Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve features high-tech elec- tronic suspension that literally adjusts itself to terrain and driving input on the fly, for an incredible ride and unmatched han- dling. This vehicle also comes standard with electronic Launch Mode for light- ning-quick getaways from a dead stop. Of course, favorite Talon elements are carried over to the four-seat models, including Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), multiple shifting modes, a full sub-transmission, I-4WD traction-aiding technology and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)," continues Powersports Business. Jackson Racing is one of numerous aftermarket suppliers leaning on its brand recognition to infuse the powersports industry. The company, which has spent 40 years perfecting its formula of success in forced induction, recently announced that it is going to market with a new tur- bocharger system—built from the ground up to achieve both peak performance and long-term dependability. Its chosen platform? The Honda Talon. The Jackson Racing Talon SXS Turbo- charger System delivers a 60-plus percent increase in horsepower over stock, achieved through a completely stock Honda drive- train, according to the company. "We didn't want to take away the great riding experience already built into the Talon—we wanted to enhance it," says Oscar Jackson Sr., president and chief engi- neer. "The Jackson Racing turbocharger system delivers a factory feel that fits the Talon perfectly. This is the turbo Talon you dreamed about."
