Honda has more than 900 dealers signed up to retail the Pioneer, which was reported days after orders started on June 20th, which means A LOT of Pioneer's will be out roaming and more of us here :D

Where is everyone that ordered a Pioneer? CHECK IN!

there's a good chance production has ramped up enough that it's close to or at 100/day.
Honda workers are going to be busy I suppose it wouldn't be that hard to assemble when the biggest part is the frame. Everything is just put on to it like the motor.

For the most part all the owners I know that own big reds are happy to get around with them. That is how I got started with the idea. Funny thing is just now every body is coming out from the brushes to show interest.

I'm still waiting for the Pioneer to come in so I can really pick it apart. For what the BigRed was designed for (work) it still does that very well and is far from outdated. It might not have all the frills of the other brands but sometimes simple is a good thing. They took a good work machine, redesigned the body work, added some suspension travel, cheapened up the brakes and final drive and called it a Pioneer. Lets not forget the added meter assembly. Was it a step forward or 2 steps back, I'm not sure yet but once the unit comes in I will be testing it out.

Let us know how you feel. Do you own a bigred? It seems like the Pioneer would seem like a logical purchase if you were buying and you didn't own a big red and liked honda.

No I don't own but I work on them, we sell them and I have plenty of friends with them to drive around.. lol I get a lot of feedback from what customers want (mostly a touch more speed and a low range) and I have my own thoughts on how they could have improved it. I will defiantly let you know how I feel about the Pioneer though. I'm sure it will be a good machine I just hope Honda didn't step backwards a little to "cheapen" them up.

looking forward to your insights. I'm also worried they stepped back in quality. Haven't gotten my hands on one yet.
