ATV Industry Facts: Did You Know?
I-4WD arrives to the Talons for 2020.
Right now all the industry is focused on the 2020 model year releases. Only a year ago the Honda Talon SxS was the subject of great reveal. This year Honda is showcasing the I-4WD; first introduced on the Pioneer 1000 LE, it represents the powersports industry’s first and only off-road brake traction control system (BTCS), and it has been specifically adapted for the Talon models.
The system manages the amount of slip between left and right front wheels, applying torque to the one with greater grip. The system also incorporates an Electronic Brakeforce Distribution system (EBD), which strategically applies braking force to optimize stability under braking, minimizing rear-chassis lift when in two-wheel drive.
To simplify re-starting after stops on ascents, the driver has the option of pressing a Hill Start Assist button (HSA) on the dash, thereby temporarily holding the vehicle in place without the need to apply pressure on the brake pedal.
