Pioneering Innovation

Will you need two or four seats? How much cargo space will you need? How will you use your UTV? Before purchasing a UTV, these are all factors you’ll need to consider. However, Honda’s making things a little easier. With the new Honda Pioneer, you don’t have to choose between a two- or four-person side-by-side. The Pioneer boasts an innovative convertible design that allows the two rear seats to fold into the bed so you can use the UTV with two-, three-, or four-seat configurations. The rear seats fold quickly and easily without tools and once the seats are folded away, the Pioneer’s tilt-bed space can be fully utilized.

Honda’s Pioneer will be replacing the Big Red in the company’s side-by-side lineup. The obvious difference between the two is the added seats, but the Pioneer also has more front and rear suspension travel. The Pioneer features long-travel suspension with 7.9 inches in front and 9.1 inches in the rear, which helps give the Pioneer the load capacity to haul 1,000 pounds or tow 1,500 pounds.

The new machine is powered by Honda’s fuel-injected 700-cc liquid-cooled OHV single-cylinder four-stroke engine that features an automotive-style automatic transmission with a hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears, and reverse.
Operators can choose from red, green, and phantom camo as well as a full line of more than 50 accessories. The Pioneer is set to hit Honda dealers later this year. Stay tuned for more information coming in May.
