Honda PIONEER 1000 3 Seat 2017
The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Honda PIONEER 1000 3 Seat model is built around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head.
Honda’s fully automatic six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission senses how you’re riding, monitoring throttle input, engine rpm, vehicle speed and more. Going downhill? The Pioneer stays in a lower gear for superior engine braking. If you want to choose a specific gear, upshift or downshift yourself in demanding conditions or even override the automatic gear selection, the twin paddle-type shifters make it easy and fun. And of course, there are no belts to worry about.
The engine’s air intake is located up high and under the hood to help ensure a clean air supply. The new viscous air-filter element flows air well for increased performance, and also provides a longer service interval.
The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates you from annoying vibration, adding to the Pioneer 1000 EPS’ superb comfort.
Venturing over really tricky, rocky terrain, hauling a big load down a steep hill, or need some real hill-climbing ability? The high/low-range sub-transmission provides a full 42-percent gear reduction when you switch to the low range.
The Pioneer 1000 EPS allows you to quickly and easily choose from 2WD, 4WD, 4WD with differentials locked for the toughest conditions, or Turf mode that’s perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields or for easier steering. All via a dash-mounted lever.
Honda’s automotive-style Electric Power Steering lessens steering effort and helps eliminate bump steer, especially over rocks, logs and on sidehills. Plus, a tilt steering wheel lets you find a position that’s just right for you.
With 268 mm (10.5 in.) of travel from the front independent suspension and 254 mm (10 in.) of travel from the rear independent suspension, you’re assured of a smooth, well-controlled ride with generous ground clearance.
With a side-by-side this powerful and capable, you need brakes that are up to the job, too. Honda’s extensive automotive experience means you know the all-wheel disc brake system is up to the task. Honda PIONEER 1000 3 Seat comes standard with large 27-inch tires on 12-inch steel rims for better ride comfort, improved ground clearance and superior traction.
With features you need, the reliability everyone wants, and the build quality that always puts Honda out in front.
Honda PIONEER 1000 3 Seater, this seat might even be more comfortable than your sofa at home! With a durable covering, it’s built for all-weather use, and to hold up to the rigors of off-road use. The centre seat is positioned up and forward to increase comfort and maximise space for all three 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.
