INTRODUCING THE PIONEER 500
Small but mighty, you can count on the Honda Pioneer 500 to get the job done. At 127cm wide, it comfortably seats two and it's narrow enough for riding between rows of fruit trees, vines, or tighter trails. Loaded with all the features you need from a 4-wheeled workhorse, like automatic transmission with AT/MT modes and a powerful engine that delivers plenty of low-RPM torque. Whether you're on the job or hitting the trails, get the most out of every ride with the Pioneer 500.
DRIVER AND PASSENGER PROTECTION
The Pioneer 500 is loaded with features to help provide a feeling of security for the driver and 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.
TRAXLOK® SELECTABLE 2WD-4WD
Our rock-solid system lets you choose either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (in 4WD) when you need it most.
POWERFUL 500-CLASS ENGINE
Coupled with an efficient five-speed automatic transmission, the Pioneer 500's 475cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine features electronic fuel injection for effortless cold-weather and high-altitude operation. It's specially tuned for low-rpm torque, too. Being liquid-cooled provides more consistent operating temperatures. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.
COMPACT 127MM WIDTH
The Pioneer 500's 127cm 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!
PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION
Thanks to Honda Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) featuring a 36mm throttle body allows the fuel mapping to instantaneously adjust to any riding condition. The Pioneer 500 not only ensures trouble-free operation in the cold at varying altitudes, but also reduces emissions and enhances fuel efficiency.
The multi-function digital dash display is full of the information you want. In addition to the standard gear position indicator, speedometer, odometer, trip meter, and hour meter - you get readouts for fuel level, clock, coolant temperature, and Honda's "maintenance minder" system.
INDEPENDENT FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION
The Pioneer 500's independent, long-travel front and rear suspension provides excellent ground clearance that all work together to deliver superior ride comfort and superb traction, especially over rough terrain.
With 150mm of travel at the front wheels and 215mm of ground clearance, the Pioneer 500 can negotiate rough trails with ease, ensuring a smooth ride which is just what you want if it's a long day out working the land.
Unlike the belt-drive automatics out there, the Pioneer 500 features an AT/MT mode transmission that uses rugged, steel gears. You get true compression braking for superior controllability (especially when descending hills), as well as long transmission life.
