HONDA Pioneer™ 1000


When it comes to side-by-sides, Honda’s Pioneers are the machines you can count on for all the tough jobs! Smart technology. Superior materials. Refined engineering and something nobody else can match: Honda’s well-earned and world-famous reputation for reliability and overall quality. In terms of comfort, handling, towing and user-friendly features, you’re all set and the jobs that are too big to tackle alone? No worries, bring the whole crew, that’s why we offer our Honda Pioneer 1000 5-seater option. It’s got Honda’s QuickFlip® seating in the bed, letting you instantly switch from a fold-flat bed configuration to comfortable passenger seating. In short, our Pioneer 1000-5 models make a versatile line of side-by-sides even more versatile. The Pioneer 1000 has a 6-speed fully automatic DCT state-of-the-art beltless transmission that is durable, efficient and easy to use, coupled with a purpose-built Honda inline, twin-cylinder, Unicam® 999cc engine, from the moment you buckle in, you’ll see why it’s the clear leader in the full-size multipurpose SXS category.

Powerful 999cc Twin-Cylinder Engine

When you know the power, you need is always at the ready, every drive is an enjoyable experience. That’s precisely what you get out of the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin. Using the same Unicam® cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, it’s more compact in size and it still delivers the kind of horsepower and torque you’d expect from a flagship model. Honda Programmed Fuel Injection features a 44mm throttle body that allows the fuel mapping to instantaneously adjust to any riding. To get the most out of your engine, you need the best air going into it. That’s why we positioned the air intake up high under the hood. It helps ensure a clean air supply, even at deeper fording depths, and with a new viscous air filter element, you get increased performance and longer service intervals. Designed to excel in off-road use, the viscous air-filter element does an excellent job of providing clean air to the engine under tough conditions, with greater air flow and longer service intervals. We positioned the air intake up high under the hood ensuring a clean air supply enabling increased performance and longer service intervals.

A high-low dual-range subtransmission

A High/Low dual-range sub transmission that delivers the power and helps access the traction you need and open or locked front and rear differentials that help prevent you from unnecessarily tearing up delicate fields or surfaces.

Advanced transmission logic

The brain of the DCT, Advanced Transmission Logic, senses how you drive and adapts. Relaxed drivers get earlier shifts for a quieter ride at lower engine speeds. Sportier drivers will hold each gear longer for higher RPM shifts and when going downhill, you get true engine braking. Now that’s a smart transmission.

907kg towing capacity

The towing capacity of the Pioneer 1000 is impressive, so much so, instead of hopping on the tractor or taking out the truck, you can stay right in your side-by-side and tackle those bigger jobs with relative ease.

Rubber mounted engine & exhaust system

By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, we route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground. The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates annoying vibration.
