    Sat in talon 1000R the other day, was very tall machine. I’m 5’8 and the lower beam to get over was thigh high, took a tall step up to get in. Wife didn’t even make it, started to get her leg up and says no way.

    Yep 5’8” here too. I noticed that as well. The clearance is worth it for me. The x will be a bit lower I think with the shorter A arms. One thing I don’t like is I popped the front hood, there s a lot of dead air space. They could move the seats forward make hauling capacity 6” longer and slope the hood off like a Yamaha opening up the trail in front of you!

    My gen 1 and and the talon x are the same width. The talon is really what I was hoping the X2 would be. More power, more suspension, more ground clearance, better doors and a little longer wheelbase. Sure it don't have a tailgate, neither did the base gen 1. It also looks like an easy add on. Both also have fixed beds. Honda don't list a towing capacity, but I can't see it being much different then a P1000. I don't use my Wolvy to tow anyway as I have much better options for that. I really don't see it as being less utility then a gen 1, X2 is a little different. The gen 1 was more of sport machine with some utility, were the X2 gave up some of the sport to add utility.

    "The gen 1 was more of sport machine with some utility, were the X2 gave up some of the sport to add utility."

    This is a perfect description of the Gen 1 compared to the X2, mine is also 64" wide, and goes everywhere it went when it was 60". I think 64" is the perfect width for a side X side. Yamaha should have done as Honda, coming out with 2 units, a 60" X2, continuing the sport / utility line, and bridging the gap towards the YXZ with a sportier, longer travel 64" R-Spec. My suspicion is they already have something in the works.....
