2021 Pioneer 1000-5 EPS


Powerful performance

Our ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so we built it around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head.

Smart transmission

Honda’s fully automatic six-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission senses how you’re riding, monitoring throttle input, engine rpm, vehicle speed and more. Going downhill? The Pioneer stays in a lower gear for superior engine braking. If you want to choose a specific gear, upshift or downshift yourself in demanding conditions or even override the automatic gear selection, the twin paddle-type shifters make it easy and fun. And of course, there are no belts to worry about.

Tackle any terrain

Venturing over really tricky, rocky terrain, hauling a big load down a steep hill, or need some real hill-climbing ability? The high/low-range sub transmission provides a full 42-percent gear reduction when you switch to the low range.

Clever controls

Quickly and easily choose, via a dash-mounted lever, from 2WD, 4WD, 4WD with differentials locked for the toughest conditions, or Turf mode; perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields.

Clean air flow

The engine’s air intake is located up high and under the hood to help ensure a clean air supply. The viscous air-filter element flows air well for increased performance, and also provides a longer service interval.

Reduced vibration

The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates you from annoying vibration, adding to the superb comfort.
