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.
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.

Simply choose MT mode and operate the five speed transmission manually with the paddle shifters. It’s the best of all worlds.
By re-tuning the transmission’s automatic-mode shift map, engineers were able to reduce shift shock for even smoother operation.
