Pioneer 520

Description

More power

Need extra power? The Pioneer 520 delivers with its improved 518 cc liquid-cooled engine. That extra 43 cc provides a torque boost and increased low-to-midrange performance that make tough jobs or tough trails even easier to handle.

Efficient engine

The Pioneer 520’s upgraded liquid-cooled engine is mounted longitudinally. By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, the flow of power is straight to the wheels without any right angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground.

Ample ground clearance

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.

Tackle any 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

Advanced transmission

The availability of both automatic and manual shifting functions gives you the best of both worlds. Choose AT mode for fully automatic shifting, or override the AT settings on the fly with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Want to shift manually? Simply choose MT mode and operate the five speed transmission manually with the paddle shifters. It’s the best of all worlds.

Smooth shifting

By re-tuning the transmission’s automatic-mode shift map, engineers were able to reduce shift shock for even smoother operation.

Crisp performance

Electronic fuel-injection system provides crisp performance and helps ensure trouble-free starting and operation in cold conditions and changing altitudes.

Accessory power

Powerful 481 watt AC generator has generous output to run electronic accessories.

Low noise

The stainless steel exhaust system keeps noise levels low while also including a certified spark arrester for when you’re riding in regulated or sensitive
