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