All side-by-sides face the same challenges, but it’s how they solve them that sets Honda’s Pioneers apart. Smart technology. Superior materials. Refined engineering. And something nobody else can match: Honda’s well-earned and world-famous reputation for reliability and overall quality. And the farther you go or the harder you work, the more that means.
This year’s Honda Pioneer 1000 lineup is a perfect example. These great side-by-sides got it right the first time in terms of comfort, handling, hauling, and user-friendly features. Available in both three- and five-seat versions, in addition to their innovative features, from our flagship Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition right through our line to the Pioneer 1000, you can count on a Honda, year after year, mile after mile, adventure after adventure.
Some folks skip straight to the top of the line. If that’s you, then you’ve come to the right place. Honda’s Pioneer 1000 Limited Edition and Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition aren’t just the top of our Pioneer line, we think they’re the top of any side-by-side lineup. Loaded with innovative features and premium upgraded components, it also offers enhanced comfort and protection. Available in both three-and five-seat versions, the Limited Editions set the bar high, then vault over it.
And here’s an overview of the rest of the lineup. The Pioneer 1000 and Pioneer 1000 EPS offer the same chassis and engine as our Pioneer 1000-5 models, but with a three-place front bench seat and a conventional tilt bed. Available in three trim levels, when you’re looking for a side-by-side you’ll be driving for years to come, the Honda’s Pioneer 1000s are what you want.Features may include:
The Pioneer 1000 Limited Edition showcases our exclusive I-4WD system. Think “I” for “Intelligent,” because that’s exactly what it is. An industry-first brake-traction control system for side-by-sides, it simplifies operation, increases drivability and optimizes traction. Using proven, advanced technology from Honda’s automotive division, you get the benefits associated with a locked front differential with none of the downsides. That means it maintains front-wheel traction even if one wheel wants to spin on ice or mud or if it’s in a hole. But at the same time, you get the lighter steering, better tracking at high speeds, tighter turning radius, and reduced kickback associated with unlocked front differentials.
When you know the power you need is always at the ready, every drive is an enjoyable experience. And that’s precisely what you get out of the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin. Using the same Unicam® cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, it’s more compact in size, and it still delivers the kind of horsepower and torque you’d expect from a flagship model.
Prepare to go further than ever before. Our refined chassis enables you to tackle terrain others would shy away from, with larger tires, long-travel independent front and rear suspension and huge ground clearance. The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates against excessive vibration, and on the 1000-5 model, self-leveling rear suspension compensates for changing loads. Plus, the Pioneer 1000 Limited Edition gets premium, quick-adjust FOX QS-3 shocks on all four corners.
