From dairy farms in the Waikato to wind-swept sheep stations on the mainland, farming is not for the faint-hearted. With such a diverse range of farms, often the only thing in common is that your workhorse needs to be tough, reliable, and able to get the job done - in all conditions. The Honda Pioneer range offers kiwi farmers all this and more in one vehicle. The No. 8 wire of farm vehicles, Pioneer’s can be used to shuttle workers around, carry livestock or haul cargo.

Take a look at some of the great features across the entire range and see why Honda Pioneers are fast becoming a staple on most kiwi farms.

dual clutch transmission

 The first and only Side by Side range to feature a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The brain of the DCT, Advanced Transmission Logic, senses how you drive and adapts, allowing the next gear to always be ready and waiting when you need it. Relaxed drivers get earlier shifts for a quieter ride at lower engine speeds.
