2023 Honda® Pioneer 1000-5 Forest
BUILT TO SURPASS EXPECTATIONS
Each day brings new challenges. And new opportunities. Seize them all in a 2023 Pioneer 1000-5. You’ll find multiple trims to choose from, like the sport-focused Trail Edition, the adventure-hungry Forest Edition, the workhorse 1000-5 and the well-appointed 1000-5 Deluxe–each one equipped with a unique set of features to help you get more out of every drive. Not to mention the kind of features that have made the Pioneer 1000-5 a favorite for so many, like our 999cc Unicam powerhouse, 6-speed Automatic DCT, exclusive QuickFlip® seating, and more. And this year, we’ve even dressed them all up with new graphics and colors, like Sandstone Beige and Matte Navy Blue.
Features may include:
The Pioneer 1000-5 Trail and Forest showcase 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 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.
- PARKING INTERLOCK
Even something like the parking brake is made smart – and simple. It features a single push/pull cable that makes adjusting and servicing easy.
- POWERFUL 999cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
We’ve given the engine huge power in our entire Pioneer 1000-5 lineup, especially in the midrange and top end. And thanks to the lower gear ratios, you’ll feel quick acceleration and stellar overall performance. Using the same Unicam® cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin is compact, while delivering the kind of horsepower and torque you’d expect from a flagship model.
- 2500-POUND TOWING CAPACITY
Have a big load to haul? Not a problem. The Pioneer 1000-5 is capable of hauling 2500 pounds. So now 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 insulate against excessive vibration and the self-leveling rear suspension compensates for changing loads.
- 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.
