The Honda Pioneer is capable of being an excellent work vehicle, and it is also a barrel of fun to go for an adventure in the woods or back country. The vehicle also has great safety features to make sure no one is getting hurt. With a 700cc-class liquid-cooled OHV single-cylinder four-stroke engine, the Honda Pioneer can get to some pretty tough places to reach. The Pioneer can also haul up to 1000 pounds.

Are you going to get the Honda Pioneer for work, or for pleasure? Maybe you are going to get it for a combination of both.

Mostly I'm wondering if the Pioneer is too good to be just for fun. Is there something else out there that would make more sense for just roaming around my (expansive) backyard. I would use it for moving things around sometimes, but it is not like we have a farm or anything.

When considering different UTVs to buy i am looking more for speed and agility than towing capacity of how big the cargo hold is. And when you have a lot of property like I do it might be worth it to invest in something faster so that i can get from A to B in a timely fashion. The Honda Pioneer seems like it can do both work and leisure, but i am going to look into some less work heavy vehicles to see if they better suit my needs. Any suggestions?

The price is already above my budget so I'll just be going for the Pioneer. Also interested to see what the price justification is for? better suspension maybe?

saw in another thread that the price diff isnt actually that bad. $11,499 for a non EPS Viking, and $11,699 for a 4 seat pioneer.

BTW does anyone know where the Pioneers engine is located? I heard on the Viking it was moved under the bed to help keep the cab cooler..

The viking will be more efficient than the pioneer becasue of it comes with overhead cams meaning more valves per cylinder. Plus the pioneer has a smaller fuel capacity.

it probably is, but I hope we won't get a lot of engine heat
yea man if thats the case the threat of heat leak on the pioneer is very real. I mean SxS dont really have thick firewalls like cars do. I have a bad feeling the Pioneer is going to piss heat into the cab.. Nice if you live in cool climates ;)
