The 2021 Honda Pioneer 500 seats two and is 50 inches wide, so it’s perfect for width restricted trails and confined work areas. It also fits easily in the bed of a full sized pickup. Full of fuel, the Pioneer 500 weighs only 1025 pounds, so it has an outstandingly light, agile feel. The Pioneer 500 is powered by a 475cc, two valve, pushrod engine with a beltless, five speed automatic transmission that can be shifted manually with car type paddle shifters. The transmission also provides predictable engine braking to all four wheels when in four wheel drive.The drive system selectable 2WD/4WD, but not front differential lock. Longitudinal engine mounting orients the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, which route the flow of power straight to the wheels without any right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more power to the ground.

This recreation utility UTV has a rear rack that can carry 450 pounds and it can tow 1000 pounds from its receiver type hitch. Independent front and rear suspension with dual rate springs and adjustable spring preload provides a comfortable, well-controlled ride. For convenience, the Pioneer 500’s side nets swing with the door. There is storage space under the seats and under the hood, and the cabin is surprisingly roomy for such a small vehicle. The contoured seats are comfortable and offer enough support for sporty driving. It’s available in red only for $8,499.
