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.
Final Drive : 2WD/4WD and 4WD with differential lock; direct front and rear driveshafts
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.
Paddle shifters on the steering wheel allow you to override the transmission’s shift points on the fly, or switch to MT mode and use the paddles to shift manually. Fully automatic, automatic with manual override, or fully manual -- you get to choose.
Easily shift from 2WD to 4WD. And when you’re in 4WD mode and you need extra traction, just use the lever on the Pioneer’s dash to lock the front differential for extra grip in the toughest situations.
Front independent double-wishbone suspension with dual-rate springs provides a substantial 200 mm (7.9 in.) of travel for excellent handling and all-day riding comfort.
Plastic CV joint boots on the driveshafts are durable and tear-resistant.
Stylish aluminum wheels look great while also helping to reduce unsprung weight for improved handling and ride comfort.
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.
In addition to a fully independent rear suspension with 230 mm (9.1 in.) of travel, the rear shocks feature preload adjustability to handle the Pioneer 700’s generous load capabilities.
The Pioneer 700-4 Deluxe’s automotive-style electric power steering lessens steering effort and helps eliminate bump steer, especially over rocks, logs and on sidehills.
A patented scraper system on the two front 200 mm brake discs helps prevent debris buildup between caliper and rim. An inboard-mounted rear 170 mm brake disc saves weight and is better protected from rocks and other debris.
Need to make a tight turn? Tip-toeing through tricky terrain? A short wheelbase and a tight turning radius makes it easy to manoeuvre out of almost any situation. The Pioneer 700-4 has the same length and wheelbase as the two-passenger Pioneer 700.

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.
