Pioneer™ 700-2 Price: $17,799+ ORC
Ready To Ride: $18,098
At the heart of this capable vehicle is Honda’s 675cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine that has lots of torque and plenty of power.
Fuel injection means it will always start up, even on cold days or at high altitude and an all-new intake design helps minimise dust ingestion.
In contrast to a belt drive system, the automotive-style Honda Automatic Transmission, with a heavy-duty torque converter and three hydraulic clutches provides positive engine braking. These features together with a two-stage shift map optimise the power delivery throughout the engine's rev range.
Chassis & Suspension
The Pioneer’s rugged and solid construction is supported by long-travel suspension of 200mm in front and 230mm in the rear which provides a plush ride with class-leading stability.
In addition to a fully independent rear suspension, the rear shocks feature preload adjustability to handle the Pioneer’s generous load capabilities. Equipped to carry 454 kilograms or tow 680 kilograms, Honda’s Pioneer is ready for the toughest work.
Exceeding previous Side-by-Side vehicles, Honda’s two seat variant, the Pioneer™ 700-2 boasts all of the same revolutionary features as the four seat variant but instead of the fold-down in-bed seating, it features a conventional hydraulically-assisted tilt bed.
The Pioneer’s Occupant Protection Structure has been built out of sturdy, large diameter tubing and includes details such as integrated handholds, recessed top tubes and a more spacious structure to enhance protection. It also meets OSHA's 1928.53 rollover protection standard.
Ready to tackle the toughest Australian terrain, the compact dimensions of Honda’s new Pioneer offers high level of manoeuvrability and the impressive turning radius will get the Pioneer out of any tight spot.
