PATRIOT RED
Overview

PIONEER 500

For over 45 years, Honda bikes have been proven performers on Kiwi farms, no matter the weather or terrain. The Pioneer 500 takes performance to the next level and is packed with new features to help make life on the farm easier and safer.

The leading compact side-by-side, Honda’s Pioneer 500 features a transmission that can change between fully automatic and manual shift modes via a toggle switch. For easy driving, you can just flick the switch to auto, push the accelerator and go. For more control, the steering-column-mounted paddles can be used to change gear manually, or to override automatic shift points while you’re on the move around the farm. Dual-rate suspension springs provide a great ride while still being resistant to bottoming. The compact Pioneer 500 still has the narrow 127cm width makes it nimble and easy to transport.
