Got a thousand Baja miles on my 2018 Pioneer 1000-5 now and am loving it!

But, can anybody explain to me why Honda needed to put TWO separate TRANNYS in it? I have been asked that question a lot and I haven't a clue! I am a little tired of answering that I haven't any idea why that is.

Rides smoother than my Rhino.
Better mileage than my Rhino even though it is heavier
A lot quieter than my Rhino and cannot hear the whine outside the vehicle (why does it have to whine??)

The vehicle has one transmission.

Perhaps you and your questioners are referring to the dual-clutch?

If so, that is part of the one and only transmission. You should look it up if you want to understand how it works - which is pretty cool, BTW.

In short, a dual clutch transmission enables near-instantaneous shifts between gears by allowing the next gear to be pre-selected, so that shifting gears is just a matter of disengaging one clutch while simultaneously engaging the other clutch.

Theres also the sub transmission for the high, low, neutral, reverse and park. To compare it to a rhino, the main transmission would be like the belt drive system and the sub would be considered the transmission in that machine.
