– 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 5 Seater Side by Side Patent Applications / Documents –
Quite some time ago (October 2014) Honda filed their patent drawings for what we now know as the 2016 Pioneer 1000-5 (SXS1000M5). This shows you how incredibly long it takes for a major manufacturer like Honda to bring a new product from design to production and then to where we actually get to put our hands on one and drive / ride it.
It’s something that has always been fascinating to me. The work it takes to turn an idea into a product. First they have to test this prototype and test it some more. Abuse this prototype and see what it’s pitfalls are and weaknesses. Fix those weaknesses and test some more. Then set up the process to where all of the individual parts can be pumped out and manufacturing details etc. Especially when releasing somewhere where it’s not only a new frame, suspension, etc but also a new drivetrain from the transmission to the engine. How they keep it all behind the curtains is pretty amazing too as we all know people love to talk… Making sure everyone keeps their mouth shut involved with the project has to be quite a difficult job in its own.
These patent documents on the Pioneer 1000 SxS have made their trip around the internet and back with loads of speculation etc when they were stumbled across. We didn’t know exactly what Honda had up their sleeves until a few weeks ago when they made the official announcement public on the 2016 Pioneer 1000 (3 seater) and Pioneer 1000-5 (5 seater).
With the model being announced officially, I figured it was time to dig the patent files up and share them for those that may have not seen them yet on Honda’s latest 1000 cc of a beast Side by Side ATV / UTV / SxS.
