Another Pioneer Hits the Trails
Honda expands its new Pioneer lineup with the addition of the Pioneer 700.
“Earlier this year we introduced the first of our new side-by-side Pioneer line, the 700-4, and now we’re announcing our second model to the Pioneer line: the tough and hard-working Pioneer 700 side-by-side that’s fully featured and will be priced competitively,” says Bill Savino with Honda.
The Pioneer 700 is a traditional two-person UTV, in comparison to the Pioneer 700-4 that features up to four convertible seats. The 700 is powered by a 675-cc. liquid-cooled engine. Fuel injection helps the new machine start easily even on cold days or at high altitudes. An all-new intake design helps minimize dust and particulate ingestion. In addition, the engine is rubber mounted on a separate subframe to reduce vibration.
Built to work, the Pioneer boasts a 1,500-pound towing capacity plus a 1,000-pound hauling capacity and a tilt bed with a hydraulic-assist strut. In addition to a fully independent rear suspension with 9.1 inches of travel, the rear shocks feature preload adjustability to handle the Pioneer 700’s generous load capabilities. Front independent double-wishbone suspension with 7.9 inches of travel contributes to the Pioneer’s all-day riding comfort.
The Pioneer 700 will be available in September. Prices will be released at a later date.
