READY AND ABLE
You love cruising the trails, but you also enjoy heading out on wild adventures right to the ragged edge of the map. You need some help with light-duty work around the cottage, but you’d also like to find a way to haul firewood from deep in your woodlot beyond the reach of your truck. Can one vehicle do everything that you want and need it to do? Absolutely: the all-purpose Honda Pioneer 700 or
Pioneer 700-4. Both of these work/play multi-taskers come standard with all the great things you love about a Honda: a fuel-injected 675 cc powerhouse of an engine that you can trust to be super-reliable; an automotive-style automatic transmission with no belts to worry about; full doors, nets and other safety gear; and a chassis that’s built to take a beating while also providing the predictable, controlled
handling that’s a hallmark of all Honda off-road vehicles. And when it comes time to put your Pioneer to work, you’ll appreciate the spacious cargo box with hydraulically assisted tilt that can haul 454 kg (1,000 lbs.) of just about anything, and the generous 680 kg (1,500 lbs.) towing capacity. Trails, wilderness, cottage, farm or job site – the Pioneer 700 and 700-4 can’t wait to show you all they can do.
Plenty of power
The liquid-cooled 675 cc single-cylinder engine has tons of torque and plenty of power. Fuel injection means it starts right up, even on cold days or at high altitude. And the engine is shear-mounted in its own cradle to help reduce vibration.
The automotive-style automatic transmission uses a heavy-duty torque converter with three hydraulic clutches. It’s tough, with no belts to worry about, and also smart — a two-stage shift map senses when you’re aggressive or light with the throttle, and optimizes power delivery accordingly.
Safe and secure technology
The sturdy Occupant Protection Structure, standard doors with an automotive-style double latching system, upgraded front and rear torso bars, roll-up side nets, and three-point belts with an Emergency Locking Retractor mechanism (a speed limiter prevents travel faster than 24 km/h if it detects that a seat belt isn’t being worn), all help keep you and your passengers safe and secure.
