Engine & Drivetrain
  • Powerful performance
    The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Pioneer 1000 EPS is built around a new 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head.
  • Smart transmission
    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.
  • Tackle any terrain
    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 subtransmission provides a full 42-percent gear reduction when you switch to the low range.
  • Clever controls
    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.
  • Clean air flow
    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.
  • Reduced vibration
    The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates you from annoying vibration, adding to the Pioneer 1000 EPS’ superb comfort.
Chassis & Suspension
  • Smooth steering
    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.
  • Comfortable ride
    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.
  • Improved handling
    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.
  • Excellent traction
    The Pioneer 1000 EPS comes standard with large 27-inch tires on 12-inch steel rims for better ride comfort, improved ground clearance and superior traction.
Additional Features
  • Roomy seating
    The three-person Pioneer 1000 EPS features a spacious bench – the middle seat is positioned up and forward to maximize comfort and room.
  • Powerful towing
    You can load a full half-ton (1,000 lbs.) into the bed of the Pioneer 1000 EPS. And when it’s time to unload, the bed’s hydraulic-assisted tilting feature makes dumping firewood, gravel, feed or other items easy. And because it’s able to tow a full ton (907 kg/2,000 lbs.), the Pioneer 1000 EPS can take on big jobs that otherwise would require a tractor or a truck.
  • Secure design
    The Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing and includes integrated handholds, recessed top tubes and a more spacious structure to enhance protection. 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.
  • Intuitive display
    The Pioneer 1000 EPS features deluxe, multi-function LCD instrumentation that displays fuel level, engine speed (rpm), vehicle speed, tripmeter, odometer, a clock, gear position and much more.
  • Adventurous style
    Colour-matched doors and bed panels add to the Pioneer 1000 EPS’ striking good looks.
  • Multi-functional
    A host of optional accessories allow you to tailor your Pioneer to your needs.
