More Hondas For 2017

November 30, 2016

Honda recently made a number of exciting new model announcements to their 2017 line-up including two all-new Rebel models and a new Limited Edition for the Pioneer 1000 and Pioneer 1000-5.

The Rebel 500 and Rebel 300 are simple and raw, offering cutting-edge style and a radical image while minimizing the barriers to riding. These two models will be an excellent platform for self-expression and customization. Here are some key points regarding these two vehicles:

  • Two-engine platforms (300cc & 500cc)
  • Clean and simple blacked-out design
  • Steal rear fender, glass lens headlight, large cast wheels, fat tires

The Pioneer 1000 Limited Editions feature a SxS industry first Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive system (I-4WD). Honda's engineers collaborated with their automotive division and tailored a system specifically for the rigors of the off-road environment. With I-4WD the Pioneer sets new industry standards, putting our flagship multipurpose side-by-side even further ahead of the competition in terms of performance and value.

Here are some key improvements to the Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5:

  • Memory function that retains the last transmission mode after engaging reverse
  • Winch harness now pre-wired
  • Thicker seat foam for improved comfort
  • Refined DCT control for even smoother acceleration from a stop

And it only gets better with the Limited Editions:

  • Visual enhancements for more commanding presence
  • Red springs and A-arms, aluminum wheels, painted plastic bodywork, protection package
  • FOX QS3 adjustable shocks
  • Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive System (I-4WD)
  • SxS industry first and a direct result of Honda automotive engineering
  • Brake Traction Control
  • Always on in I-4WD, it constantly senses speed of the front wheels; applying brake force to slipping wheel
  • Combined with torque-sensing limited slip differential, I-4WD can provide as much drive force as a locking differential
  • Less steering effort
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Engaged with a dash mounted switch, the brake is momentarily held while transitioning to the accelerator from a stop on an incline
  • Electronic Brake Force Distribution
  • Optimizes front and rear brakes while coming to a stop—loaded or empty

Stay tuned... we'll give you more info as we receive it!
