In true Honda style with reliability always at the forefront of product development; the new Pioneer 500’s auto transmission is all-gear so no belts that slip, break or burn out.
Allowing for easy manageability through an ever changing Aussie landscape; the transmission can change between fully automatic and manual electric shift modes via a toggle switch. Paddle shifters are still available for driving in manual mode and can override auto mode on the fly.
To improve safety, the 2017 Pioneer 500 now has Seat Belt Interlock to make sure drivers wear their seat belt while operating the machine. Speed is also limited when the seat belt is not engaged. New Dual-rate suspension springs provide a plush ride and resistance to bottoming on larger obstacles and a new torsion bar design enhances occupant and drive safety.
