    Neighbor just bought a New Honda Pioneer. I love the 3 speed automatic transmission! No belt to worry about! Smooth like driving a truck or car. Down shifts and up shifts so smooth! The pop up seats in the bed are very nicely done. Fit and finish was very nice too. While this machine is no competition for the Polaris 900 I see it giving a lot of thought to mid size buyers. This Honda didn't have EPS steering, but it felt on the move like it did have it. The ride was great, quiet running as well. More importantly I didn't hear any drive train rattle like we get with Polaris Rangers. I didn't care much for their roll bar design, but the half doors were very nice for the front and back seats. The one year OEM Warranty is attractive too!

    :lol: I actually sold the Rhino 700 & Teryx and went to the Pioneer I love it so far... The steering of the pioneer is like no other I have drove to be classified as no power steering..

    Those are some nice looking machines guys. The three speed automatic trans has to be pretty cool. All of the Honda ATV's I have owned over the years have been top notch! It looks like the Pioneer has some good engineering behind it.

    Thanks guys I love it so far but do to work and sub 0 temps I have not gotten out much yet. I will post up a video and pics Friday. The tranny is kinda weird to get used to after riding ATVs. So far it is a cool machine.

    Very nice machine indeed. Wish I had the money and a good Honda dealer, I might try it. We have a very poor local Honda dealer here. It's so bad, my sister's father-in-law travels 80 miles to the next dealer just to buy an oil filter for his Gold Wing. :lol:

    They look good guys!

    I have looked at them at the dealer and they look nice! I like the doors, but kinda wish they wore a little taller so you could rest your arm on them.

    x2 on the cage it’s a little odd looking.


    I love honda atvs and dirt bikes. their is a great honda and yamaha dealer here in knoxville.(one place sells both brands)
