New I-4x4 sets the Pioneer 1000-5 LE apart
Just days after we were sliding around the snow in a Sport UTV, Honda whisked us away to Southern California to test out the new Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition.
Though the Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5 have only been out for a short time, the new Limited Edition versions get some cool new technology, which we imagine will work its way down to the other Pioneer models in the coming years.
Engine: 999cc Parallel Twin
Ground Clearance: 12.2 in.
Curb Weight: 1,773 lbs
The primary reason Honda let us escape the cold for a few days is its new I-4WD system, which is available exclusively on the Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5 Limited edition models. According to Honda, I-4WD borrows heavily from its automotive engineers and offers brake traction control, Hill-Start Assist and electronic brake force distribution. With I-4WD engaged (along with the Pioneer’s torque biasing limited slip differential), Honda says drivers get the same traction as a locking differential without all the extra steering effort and kickback and the need to stop and engage the differential lock.
