Not Just Bigger: Better.
The outdoors is meant to be explored. The highest hills; the deepest canyons; and the farthest reaches of the forests all lie in wait. And now; we bring you an entirely new vehicle that can get you there.
The all-new Pioneer™ 1000 is the world’s preeminent side-by-side; both in the Honda® lineup; and the industry. Built around a class-leading 999cc twin-cylinder engine; it can haul up to 1000 pounds and can tow a full ton. Meanwhile; the broad front bench provides comfortable seating for three adults.
Look closer; and you’ll find even more difference-making technology. Like the standard-equipment fully-automatic six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. The driveline that lets you choose 2- or 4-wheel drive. A High/Low dual-range subtransmission that delivers the power and helps access the traction you need. Open or locked front and rear differentials that help prevent you from unnecessarily tearing up delicate fields or surfaces. Hydraulic tilt bed. And fully-independent front and rear suspension.
Features May Include:
A flagship Side-by-Side starts with a flagship engine; and the all-new Pioneer™ 1000 features one of our best. A class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled parallel twin; it’s the largest in the industry. And it’s also one of the smartest; utilizing Honda®’s proprietary Unicam® cylinder-head design; perfected in our high-output motocross bikes. Built specifically for the Pioneer™ 1000; the engine is specially tuned to produce the horsepower and torque this SxS demands.
The Pioneer™ 1000 is more than tough—it’s Honda® Smart. Here are some examples: The Pioneer™ 1000’s advanced; fully automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission senses how you’re riding; monitoring throttle position and input; engine RPM; vehicle speed and more. Relaxed drivers get smooth shifts and lower engine speed for a smoother; quieter ride. More sporting drivers get quicker shifts and higher engine speeds to maximize engine torque and power. Going downhill? The Pioneer™ 1000 stays in a lower gear for superior engine braking.
The Pioneer™ 1000’s Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission features six forward speeds plus reverse and two gearing ranges (high and low). The Pioneer™ 1000 EPS also adds paddle shifting and three shift modes (standard; sport and manual). It can do all the shifting for you; as smooth and seamless as any automatic; but can also give you total control to shift yourself—it’s the best of all worlds!
Designed to excel in off-road use; the engine’s air intake is located up high and under the hood to help ensure a clean air supply. The new viscous air-filter element flows air well for increased performance; and also provides a longer service interval.
Total flexibility here; with one lever. Turf mode is perfect for sensitive surfaces (like grass fields) and provides easier steering. Rougher conditions demand four-wheel drive to maximize available traction. And when the trail becomes even more demanding front and rear differential locks drives direct power to all four wheels.
With over 10 inches of front-wheel travel and 10 inches in the rear; the Pioneer™ 1000 also offers generous ground clearance. You get a smooth ride; and improved traction in rough conditions.
With a vehicle as big and capable as the Pioneer™ 1000; you need brakes that are up to the job too. Honda®’s extensive automotive experience means you know the Pioneer™ 1000’s brake system is up to the task.
