The all-New 2016 Pioneer 1000 will be motivated by a 999cc Unicam twin-cylinder engine, mated to a fully automatic, 6-speed (w/reverse) dual clutch transmission that includes sport and manual mode with paddle shifting.

The 4x4 system is ready for every type of terrain. It features a High/Low range Sub-transmission with four different drive modes including Turf, 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD with differential lock. Nothing will come between you and your destination.

Other standard goodies include electric power steering (EPS), tilt steering wheel, and colored body panels, 12” steel wheels, 27” radial tires and. The Pioneer 1000-5 tacks on Honda’s QuickFlip convertible seating, 14” aluminum wheels, self-leveling rear suspension and LED headlights.

There are, obviously at this point, two versions of the four wheeler Pioneer 1000 and they are differentiated by the number passengers they can carry: two or five.
