Improving the Honda Talon's ride isn't an easy task. The tech at play from the Dual-Clutch Transmission and i-4wd system makes it one of the easiest SXS models to drive on the market. And if you're lucky enough to pilot the FOX Live Valve edition around, you won't be feeling the need to upgrade much, if anything. However, we think the only thing not perfect on the Honda Talon is the stance. The stock wheel offsets, and tire sizing, give it a less-than-aggressive look, in our book. We have swapped out stock tires and wheels on both of our long-term test units for the Real World Ride series. And this year, we hit up System 3 Racing to see what was new as we headed into the mountains of Montana. On the West Coast, you see the SXS tire game dominated by the off-road truck-style tire offerings on the market. Like we featured in Arizona last year, System 3's RT320 Race & Trail tires are what most drivers prefer for desert skimming or two-tracking in the hills. They offer a smooth ride and plenty of grip. But for the Rocky Mountains, we wanted some- thing with more bite. Enter System 3's all-new XTR370 X-Terrain. This tire has all the rock-clawing knobs you could ever want, and it will work better in wet-weather, softer terrain at elevation. This is a big hit for the guys out East looking for more aggressive knobby patterns to pull them through.
