Honda releases Pioneer side by side range


Honda Motorcycles has released the pricing on its all new Pioneer side by side series which is now available at dealerships nationally.

The Pioneer 700-2P (two person) is priced from $18,995 excluding GST. The 700-4P which offers increased seating capacity for 4 people is priced from $20,795 excluding GST.

At the heart of the 2014 Pioneer is a liquid cooled 675cc fuel injected engine. Dual stage EFI mapping provide the Pioneer with an automatic sport or work mode. A durable automotive style transmission with a heavy-duty torque converter provides smooth shifting and exceptional engine braking says Honda.

Designed, developed and produced in Honda’s US production facility the Pioneer has been designed for durability and low running costs. The petrol tank holds 30 litres plus 4.5 litres in reserve. This gives the Pioneer enough range for large remote areas. A rubber engine mounting system minimises vibration and gives a smoother ride says Honda.

Safety is a key feature of the Pioneer design. Both models have a full roll cage and are equipped with easy to use safety nets and all seats are equipped with seat belts. High grip floor surfaces and footholds are also key safety features. Easy access doors also provide the passengers with more protection. There are bottle holders in various positions in the vehicle.

The rear tray on both models can hold up to 454 kg, and the hydraulically assisted tilt bed makes unloading easy. The Pioneer can tow 682 kg.

The 4-Person model will accommodate up to four people but the seating is designed to offer maximum flexibility to be able change the configuration for 2, 3 or 4 people in a matter of seconds without the need to use tools.

Aesthetically the Pioneers features new styling with body work made from durable hard wearing plastics. Independent double wishbone suspension with 200mm of travel in the front and 230mm in the rear provide the ground clearance to tackle New Zealand terrain says Honda.
