Think of an exciting Honda two seater with all-wheel-drive and most car fans will instantly think of the thrilling NSX supercar.
But now there is a new open-top Honda two seater that’s even be faster than the mighty NSX – as long as the race is off the road…
The new Pioneer is Honda’s first Side-by-Side (SxS) utility vehicle, designed to be more practical than a quad bike and more manageable than a traditional full size 4×4 vehicle.
Employing Honda’s acclaimed ATV technology and featuring a powerful and efficient 700cc engine, the supremely capable Pioneer will be available as either a two or four-seater.
The Pioneer will open up a world of possibility for both business and leisure users who need an ATV that will take them to even the most hard to reach places.
What’s more its launch will help commercial operators meet the requirements of the European Two Man Working Directive, where at least two people are required to be present when working in dangerous conditions, without needing two vehicles.
The launch of the Pioneer will cement the brand’s status as the undisputed market leader in the ATV sector. Honda accounts for more than 50% of all UK ATV sales.
Steve Morris, Head of Honda (UK), said: “The Pioneer is a fantastic vehicle that will strengthen Honda’s ATV offering significantly. By adding a choice of SxS options to our range, we will be able to build on our best-in-industry reputation and the long-standing customers relationships we have developed through our nationwide network of authorised dealers.”
He added: “The Pioneer also sets a new benchmark for a SxS ATV. Our engineers and designers have developed it from the wheels up with the same attention to detail they would any Honda vehicle.
“This means users will benefit from new levels of comfort, refinement, agility and handling as well as the superior performance and aftersales care for which Honda is known.”
