The all new Honda Pioneer 520


Introducing the new Pioneer 520

It’s powerful, versatile and durable – but lighter and more compact than a classic UTV. With a new 518cc engine that’s both larger and more powerful than ever before, the Pioneer 520 features electronic fuel injection for effortless cold weather and high altitude operation, making it perfect for everything from farming to estate-management. And an efficient five-speed automatic transmission gives you plenty of pulling power for when the going gets tough. Plus, selectable two and four-wheel drive gives you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and serious power (in 4WD).

Compact yet Powerful

The Pioneer 520’s understated size makes it incredibly versatile. At just 1270 mm wide, it can go where other side-by-sides can’t, including narrow trails and if you ever need to transport it, it will fit on a trailer. In fact, with a curb weight of only 483Kg, it’s one of the lightest petrol side by side on the market.


Small but mighty – despite it’s compact size, the Pioneer 520 features a heavy-duty receiver-style hitch giving it an impressive 454kg towing capacity.


The versatile Pioneer 520 has room for two and comes loaded with innovative features. Perfect for anyone whose workday takes them off the beaten path.

Side-by-Side Seating

Durability doesn’t mean compromising on comfort. The Pioneer 520 offers bench-style seating, individual backrests and seatbelts for both driver and passenger. And with front opening doors, it’s easy to hop in and out.

Tilt Bed

Measuring 98.3cm wide, 65.8cm long and 25cm high, the Pioneers super-convenient tilt bed can carry up to a hulking 204kg. The bed has convenient slots that you can use to insert a divider, useful for separating loads. Plus, an assist strut and tailgate that opens flat make tipping easy.

Independent Suspension

Fully independent double wishbone suspension all round means you get a smooth ride, even over rough terrain.

Free TrakKING Datatool with every New Honda.

Getting the job done matters, so having your ATV stolen can cause major disruption on your farm. To make things worse, the cost of rural crime is at its highest since 2013.
That’s why we’re including a Datatool TrakKing Adventure with every new ATV and Pioneer UTV purchased from 1 November 2018 at participating dealers. And because we understand you can’t put a price on peace of mind, it comes fitted at no extra cost. The only cost is a monthly subscription to activate the device of £9.95 per month.
ATVs were the most commonly targeted items on farms by criminals last year, accounting for £2.3m of claims to the insurer NFU Mutual.
