2020 Honda® Pioneer 500 Adventure Anywhere Features may include: ENGINE & DRIVETRAIN Efficient power The Pioneer 500’s liquid-cooled endgine is mounted longitudinally. By orienting the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, the flow of power is straight to the wheels without any right angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more grunt to the ground. Ample ground clearance "By using an overhead-valve layout and a semi-dry-sump lubrication system, engine height is significantly reduced, lowering centre of gravity while also improving ground clearance. Rubber-cushion engine mounting and gear-driven counter-balancer reduce vibration." Tackle any terrain Shiftable 2WD/4WD system provides the efficiency of two-wheel drive while retaining the ability to select 4WD quickly via a dash-mounted lever when conditions demand. Plus, the superheavy-duty automatic clutch with low-rpm engagement contributes to excellent drivability and towing capacity. CHASSIS & SUSPENSION Durable construction A strong steel chassis is designed to help the Pioneer 500 remain stable in rough going, and its heavy duty construction will help it stand up to rough punishment on the job site or recreational trail. Trail ready Because it’s physically smaller with a smaller wheelbase, narrower 50 in. width and tighter turning circle than typical side-by-sides, the Pioneer 500 can go more places. Improved handling & comfort The independent front and rear suspension systems, with dual-rated springs, provide a comfortable, controlled ride over all types of terrain. ADDITIONAL Bold look Attractive, rugged bodywork gives the Pioneer 500 an aggressive, functional look. The easily removable hood and seat cushions also help simplify maintenance. Smart design Waterproof accessory socket provides convenient 12-volt power whenever you need it.
