Simon from Giant has been in touch with a few more details on the Talon:

“The frame itself has been specifically designed for us at our request with a shorter top tube than our XTC with a 1.5 degree slacker head angle, so less race and much more trail riding specific to suit the UK trail riders.  Because it’s a different bike with a different outlook and purpose it runs alongside our current XTC offering and so is not a replacement.
Regarding price, the Talon 3 begins the line up at £425 with the Talon 0 topping the range at £850, when you look at comparable competitors models the Talons stack up very well price and spec wise.  Ladies versions are £425 and £550.”
