Honda Announces 2016 Pioneer 1000

Brand-new model to round out 2016 Pioneer multipurpose SxS lineup


TORRANCE, Calif. (June 11, 2015) — Honda today announced the addition of two brand-new full-size side-by-side models–the groundbreaking Pioneer 1000 and Pioneer 1000-5–to its 2016 lineup. With class-leading displacement and payload, a 6-speed fully automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and a full list of features and options, the flagship Pioneer 1000 promises to raise the bar in terms of power, performance and capability in both work and recreation applications.

“We’re very excited about the all-new 999cc engine we’ve developed for these new Pioneers,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “We’ve also added the industry’s only fully automatic mechanical transmission–the 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. With steel gears, the DCT offers true engine braking, seamless shifting and a smooth, reliable transfer of power.”

I sure hope Yamaha comes out with something to compete against these. Time to step it up big time. And it better be bigger than a damn 700.

I can't wait to get behind the wheels of one of these machines and try it out. I think it's going to put the pressure on every one (Yamaha, Polaris, Can-am). Prices are rumored to start around $14k: - Pricing for the 1000s

Yeah, i seen the pricing, think it was right at 14k for a standard model, if i remember right from reading it this morning. Too much for me, Like my Viking anyways, maybe when i get my Viking paid down enough, maybe i can sell it, and get the next Viking with a 1000!!!
