BETTER. NOT BIGGER.

Overview

PIONEER 520

For over 45 years, Honda bikes have been proven performers on Kiwi farms, no matter the weather or terrain. The Pioneer 520 takes performance to the next level and is packed with features to help make life on the farm easier and safer.

The Pioneer 520’s, powerful 518cc engine with fuel injection for great cold weather and high altitude performance. The strut-assist tilt utility bed makes dumping cargo a breeze.

You also get features like our Honda automatic transmission using rugged, steel gears with AT/MT modes. Selectable Traxlok® two- or four-wheel drive for lighter steering or for more traction and the longitudinally mounted engine to put more grunt to the ground.

The narrow width lets you and a passenger go where other side-by-sides can’t, on width-restricted trails and farm tracks. It also allows easy transport and storage.  

The Pioneer 520 is your go-to side-by-side that punches well above its size and weight on the farm.
