HONDA Pioneer™ 520


Honda’s new Pioneer 520 is going to be the perfect choice for thousands of owners. Why? its overall size makes it incredibly versatile. It comfortably seats two and can easily be loaded up making transportation between locations easy. The biggest news for the 2021 Pioneer 520 is its new more powerful 518cc engine and a strut-assist tilt tray. You also get features like our Honda automatic transmission with AT/MT modes, and selectable two- or four-wheel drive. The new Pioneer 520 is your go-to side-by-side that punches well above its size and weight.

Compact 127cm width

The Pioneer 520’s 127cm overall width is a huge bonus. Whether it’s for width-restricted trails or convenient transportation and storage, the Pioneer 520 can go where just about no other side-by-side can!

New tilt tray

The new Pioneer 520 now features a super-convenient tilt tray. Measuring 98.3cm wide, 65.7cm long, and 24.8cm high can carry up to 204Kg. An assist strut makes dumping easy, the tailgate opens flat, and inside the bed is set up for plywood dividers or to hold milk crates or plastic buckets. It also accommodates our line of Honda Pro-Connect™ system accessories.


35-watt headlights provide clean, crisp light to get you through any adventure, day or night.

Hard roof and tow hitch plus tow ball

Providing outstanding weather protection. It is designed to fit over the cabin utilising Honda’s Tool-Less clamping system for quick installation & removal. Compatible with all Honda Accessory windscreens. Tow hitch and ball are also standard.

Side-by-side seating

With a comfortable bench-style seat, individual backrests and seatbelts for both rider and passenger, the Pioneer 520 offers side-by-side comfort and excellent manoeuvrability.

Driver and passenger protection

The Pioneer 520 is loaded with features to help provide a feeling of security for the driver and passengers. The Occupant Protection Structure uses sturdy, large-diameter tubing, and includes integrated handholds, recessed top tubes and a more spacious structure to enhance protection; it also meets OSHA’s 1928.53 rollover protective structure standard. Hard doors and roll-up side nets provide a secure feel and keep mud and debris out of the cabin, while automotive-style three-point belts with an Emergency Locking Retractor mechanism help keep everyone secure.

Digital display

The multi-function digital dash display is full of the information you want. In addition to the standard gear position indicator, speedometer, odometer, trip meter, and hour meter—you get readouts for fuel level, clock, coolant temperature and Honda's "maintenance minder" system.

Single-function door net

The Pioneer 520 comes standard with doors, and the occupant net is directly attached—just unlock and open the door, and the net automatically swings aside making entry and exit easier.
