Demo Unit - No Freight, No Prep & Full Warranty! 2018 Honda® Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe LE Defy boundaries Features may include: Engine & Drivetrain Powerful performance The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE is built around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with our 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. New Intelligent 4WD The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE includes a suite of stability assist features designed to make your ride safer, easier and more fun. Using technology developed for cars and trucks, I-4WD includes Brake Traction Control System (BTCS), Hill Start Assist (HSA), and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). When I-4WD is engaged using the dashboard-mounted lever, BTCS applies additional drive to the tire with more grip, providing better traction without the heavy feel of a differential lock. On-the-fly engagement via an illuminated switch allows for instant response when needed. For more on HSA and EBD, see the Chassis & Suspension section. Turf mode In addition to 2WD and I-4WD, the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE features a Turf mode that’s perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields, or for easier steering. 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 1000-5 EPS LE's superb comfort. Chassis & Suspension Hill Start Assist Getting going when you’re stopped on a hill can be a bit of an adventure – particularly when towing or carrying a load. That’s why the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE comes standard with Hill Start Assist. Activated with a dash-mounted button, HSA automatically maintains sufficient brake pressure so you can move your foot to the gas pedal and you’re under way. No more need to two-foot it when climbing hills. 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. Fox suspension The LE’s premium Fox shocks combine with generous travel from the independent front and rear suspensions to assure a smooth, well-controlled ride with plenty of ground clearance.
