Honda Pioneer 500 Side by Side -
The Honda Pioneer 500 Side by Side features a liquid-cooled engine is mounted longitudinally in the frame, allowing direct driveshaft alignment to front and rear drive units for improved power output at the wheels.
Electronic fuel-injection system provides crisp performance and helps ensure trouble-free starting and operation in cold conditions and changing altitudes. A convenient electric starter allows in-gear starting when the brake is applied.
Ample ground clearance and cargo capacity
By using an overhead-valve layout and a semi-dry-sump lubrication system, engine height is significantly reduced, lowering centre of gravity while also improving ground clearance. Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration.
Large, flat cargo area with ATV-style rack offers numerous tie-down points for maximum load versatility and can carry 203 kg of gear. Heavy-duty receiver-style hitch lets you tow up to 450 kg
he addition of the automatic shifting function gives you the best of both worlds. Choose AT mode for fully automatic shifting, override the AT settings on the fly with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel, or choose MT mode and operate the five-speed transmission manually with the paddles. It’s the best of all worlds.
Tackle any terrain
The independent front and rear suspension systems, with new dual-rated springs for 2017, provide a comfortable, controlled ride over all types of terrain.
Shiftable 2WD/4WD system provides the efficiency of two-wheel drive while retaining the ability to select 4WD quickly via a dash-mounted lever when conditions demand. Plus, the super-heavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement contributes to excellent drivability and towing capacity.
A strong steel chassis is designed to help the Pioneer 500 remain stable in rough going, and its heavy duty construction will help it stand up to rough punishment on the job site or recreational trail. Because it’s physically smaller with a smaller wheelbase, narrower width and tighter turning circle than typical side-by-sides, the Pioneer 500 can go more places.
Powerful 481 watt AC generator has generous output to run electronic accessories. Centrally mounted high-capacity airbox provides easy access for filter maintenance.
Honda Pioneer 500 Side by Side features a high-mounted snorkel draws cleaner, drier air and features four separate resonators to reduce intake noise. A stainless steel exhaust system provides superior corrosion resistance and minimizes noise levels. The muffler includes a certified spark arrester for when you’re riding in regulated or sensitive environments.
Roomy cab and bench seat are designed for a comfortable fit for two. Automotive-type 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seat belts and stout Occupant Protection Structure help to keep driver and passenger secure. For added safety, a speed limiter prevents travel faster than 24 km/h if it detects that a seat belt isn’t being worn.
High sill doors, integrated headrests, protective door nets, and seat belt release mechanisms all add to operator security. Clever rear-hinged door design allows the nets to remain attached when opening the doors, easing entry and exit.
Twin-headlight system features 37.5-watt headlights with a focused light distribution pattern for improved visibility after dark. LED brake lights and tail-lights provide optimal illumination and visibility. The easy-read digital dash includes a large speedometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, maintenance minder, and warning lights for critical engine and drivetrain functions.
A wide array of accessory items, including numerous ways to add storage and carrying ability, contribute to the Pioneer 500‘s versatility. Plus, trusted Honda durability, quality and reliability help improve retained value over the life of the machine.
