The Pioneer 1000 Limited Edition showcases our exclusive I-4WD system. Think “I” for “Intelligent,” because that ;s exactly what it is. An industry-first brake-traction control system for side-by-sides, it simplifies operation, increases drivability and optimizes traction. Using proven, advanced technology from Honda ;s automotive division, you get the benefits associated with a locked front differential with none of the downsides. That means it maintains front-wheel traction even if one wheel wants to spin on ice or mud or if it ;s in a hole. But at the same time, you get the lighter steering, better tracking at high speeds, tighter turning radius, and reduced kickback associated with unlocked front differentials.POWERFUL 999cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
When you know the power you need is always at the ready, every drive is an enjoyable experience. And that ;s precisely what you get out of the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin. Using the same Unicam cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, it ;s more compact in size, and it still delivers the kind of horsepower and torque you ;d expect from a flagship model.2000-POUND TOWING CAPACITY
Call it 2000 pounds, or call it 1 ton. Either way, the towing capacity of the Pioneer 1000 is unsurpassed by any competitor. So instead of hopping on the tractor or taking out the truck, you can stay right in your side-by-side and tackle those bigger jobs with relative ease.CHASSIS AND SUSPENSION
Prepare to go further than ever before. Our refined chassis enables you to tackle terrain others would shy away from, with larger tires, long-travel independent front and rear suspension and huge ground clearance. The rubber mounted engine and exhaust system insulates against excessive vibration, and on the 1000-5 model, self-leveling rear suspension compensates for changing loads. Plus, the Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition gets premium, quick-adjust FOX QS-3 shocks on all four corners.ADVANCED TRANSMISSION LOGIC
The brain of the DCT, Advanced Transmission Logic, senses how you drive and adapts. Relaxed drivers get earlier shifts for a quieter ride at lower engine speeds. Sportier drivers will hold each gear longer for higher RPM shifts. And when going downhill, you get true engine braking. Now that ;s a smart transmission.QUICKFLIP SEATING
Want to bring an extra one or two passengers along for the ride? Two QuickFlip seats pop up from the cargo bed on Pioneer 1000-5 models, giving you the extra seating you need, when you need it. Exclusive to Honda, it ;s a smarter system than fixed seat, multi-row models, giving you better maneuverability on the trails.
