Honda 2016 Pioneer1000 3

Honda Pioneer 1000-3

Honda is ramping up its side-by-side range, with the introduction of its most powerful model ever, the all-new Pioneer



Immediately assuming its position as the clear leader in the full-size multipurpose SxS category, Honda’s new-fromthe-ground-up, no-compromise Pioneer 1000 is powered by a purpose-built inline, twin-cylinder, Unicam® 999cc engine.

Look closer, and you’ll find even more difference-making technology. Like the standard-equipment fully-automatic six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission and a driveline that lets you choose 2- or 4-wheel drive.

A High/Low dual-range subtransmission that delivers the power and helps access the traction you need and Open or locked front and rear differentials that help prevent you from unnecessarily tearing up delicate fields or surfaces.


From stem to stern, the new Honda Pioneer 1000 puts everything we’ve learned designing off-road bikes, ATVs, Side-by-Sides and autos into one package.

The independent, long-travel suspension, excellent ground clearance and large tires all work in concert to deliver superior ride comfort and superb traction. The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates you from annoying vibration, so your driving experience is like riding in first class, not economy.


With features you need, the reliability everyone wants, and the build quality that always puts Honda out in front.

Designed for three, 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 center seat is positioned up and forward to increase comfort and maximize 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.

Honda is pleased to announce the introduction of the Pioneer™ 1000-3 and Pioneer™ 1000-5 into Australia, available late 2015.

Honda Pioneer is recommended for drivers 16 years of age and older, and tall enough to wear the seat belt properly and reach all the controls. The passenger should also be tall enough for the seat belt to fit properly and brace themselves, if needed, by placing both feet firmly on the floor while grasping the hand hold.
