Features

COMFORT

  • INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION (IRS): The Pioneer 500’s fully independent rear suspension means you get a smooth ride, especially over rough terrain.
  • SIDE-BY-SIDE SEATING: With a comfortable bench-style seat, individual backrests and seatbelts for both rider and passenger, the Pioneer 500 offers side-by-side comfort and excellent maneuverability.

HANDLING

  • DUAL RATE SPRINGS: A spring is a spring, right? Sure, all springs may look alike, but the Pioneer 500s feature dual-rate springs, and after one ride you’ll feel the difference. You get a smoother ride over smaller bumps with more bottoming resistance on bigger bumps, along with a more confident steering feel.
  • FUN, SPORTY RIDE: With 5.9 inches of travel at the front wheels and 8.5 inches of ground clearance, the Pioneer 500 can negotiate rough trails with ease. And the Pioneer 500’s suspension is tuned for a fun, sporty ride too.
  • PADDLE SHIFTERS: If you want to shift manually, simply upshift and downshift without ever having to take your hands off the wheel. You get to choose the exact gear you want, and it’s engineered for precise, smooth shifts.

PERFORMANCE

  • POWERFUL 500-CLASS ENGINE: Coupled with an efficient five-speed automatic transmission, the Pioneer 500’s engine features electronic fuel injection for effortless cold-weather and high-altitude operation. It’s specially tuned for low-rpm torque, too.
  • AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH AT/MT MODE: You can let the Honda Pioneer 500’s automatic transmission shift for you, or you can still shift yourself with its paddle shifters. You can even shift from auto to manual (AT to MT) on the fly!
  • 1000-POUND TOWING CAPACITY: The Pioneer 500 has a heavy-duty receiver-style hitch and 1000-pound towing capacity.
  • LIQUID COOLING: Our time-tested Honda engine is liquid-cooled, which provides more consistent operating temperatures and more power than a comparable air-cooled motor. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.
  • LONGITUDINAL ENGINE MOUNTING: The Pioneer 500 is built around our strong, single-cylinder, 475cc longitudinal engine. 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.

SAFETY

  • SINGLE-FUNCTION DOOR/NET: The Pioneer 500 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.

VERSATILITY

  • COMPACT 50“ WIDTH: The Pioneer 500’s 50-inch overall width is a huge bonus. Whether it’s for width-restricted trails or convenient transportation and storage, the Pioneer 500 can go where just about no other side-by-side can!
  • REAR CARRIER DESIGN: The Pioneer 500 gives you tremendous versatility when it comes to securing loads. Special tiedown-hook securing points make it even easier, and the rack’s 450-pound rating gives you plenty of carrying capacity, too.

COMFORT

  • INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION (IRS): The Pioneer 500’s fully independent rear suspension means you get a smooth ride, especially over rough terrain.
  • SIDE-BY-SIDE SEATING: With a comfortable bench-style seat, individual backrests and seatbelts for both rider and passenger, the Pioneer 500 offers side-by-side comfort and excellent maneuverability.
