2017 Honda Pioneer 500

FUN HAS NO RESTRICTIONS

FULL-SIZED FEATURES IN A FUN-SIZED PACKAGE.

Choosing the right tool is the job half done. And it can make whatever you’re trying to do a lot more fun.

For thousands of side-by-side owners, the right tool for the job is a Honda Pioneer 500. It’s big enough to seat two easily, but at just 50 inches wide, it can fit where bigger side-by-sides can’t, letting you explore trails with width restrictions. That means it also fits into a full-sized pickup’s bed easily. But the Pioneer 500 still offers plenty of power, and is loaded with features, including for 2017, a new automatic transmission with AT/MT modes. And then there are the best features of all: Honda quality and dependability.

Safety

  • DRIVER/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.
