Big fun. Little restrictions.
If the secret fishing spot was easy to get to, or the job wasn’t a tight squeeze, every side-by-side would be there. This is where the Honda Pioneer 500 shines. It comfortably seats two, and is only 50” wide so you can explore trails with width restrictions. Plus, it fits in a full-sized pickup’s bed and has lots of great features like automatic transmission with AT/MT modes. Work or fun, the Pioneer 500 gets the job done.
Gets to the fun other ATVs can’t.
Even though the Pioneer 500 is trim in size, it’s still a giant in terms of what it can accomplish. The powerful 500-class engine delivers plenty of low-rpm torque and a wide powerband to accomplish the job, big or small. Got something to tow? The Pioneer 500 can handle a 1000-pound towing load, and the rear rack can hold 450 pounds. Plus, the automatic five-speed electric-shift transmission has a manual mode with paddle shifters so you can choose to let it shift automatically, or switch over into MT mode—even on the fly.
The Pioneer 500 is equipped with Independent Rear Suspension with dual-rate springs. This, combined with an open front differential and a locked rear axle gives you precise handling, plenty of power to both rear wheels full time, and a smooth ride for all-day comfort.
