– 2018 Honda Pioneer Models Released + 2019 News! –

Well… The excitement has probably worn off today for some of you guys that follow me on Facebook. Why do I say that? A lot of guys were hoping for Honda to add a sport side by side model to the 2018 lineup but that didn’t happen today. I’ll dive a little more into that later on in this post though. For right now, we’ll get back to something not as gloomy haha!

What did we learn today? A lot! A lot of 2018 motorcycle news from Honda that I’ll be posting in another updated blog post shortly after this one if you guys are into motorcycles too and want to see the latest and greatest. Let’s get to what you guys are here for though and that’s 2018 Honda side by side / UTV / SxS model information!

Update 7/11/2017: Honda Pioneer Side by Side MSRP / Prices are now released as well as a 2018 Pioneer VS 2017 Pioneer comparison so you can see the price increase on this year models lineup.

2018 Honda Pioneer 500

2018 Pioneer 500 VS 2017 Pioneer 500 Changes? None. The only difference you’ll see is that Honda dropped the new “green” color they experimented with last year and brought back the “olive” green most of you are probably familiar with from their ATV models over the years. Other than that, the Pioneer 500 receives no changes for 2018.

2018 Pioneer 700 VS 2017 Pioneer 700 Changes? None. The only difference on the 2018 model you’ll find is that Honda is bringing back the olive green color for this model too as we only had red in 2017.

What? No all-new 2018 Honda sport Side by Side / UTV? Where’s the 2018 Honda Talon that rumors have been floating around on for over a year? I’m sure that’s what a lot of you may be asking if you are a Honda fan and follow all of the news, rumors etc that float around online.

I can’t say much right now other than don’t give up hope guys. Honda has made it more clear than ever that they plan to expand their side by side model lineup to steal even more of that market share from Polaris, Yamaha, Can-Am, Kawasaki etc.  Here’s a little chart to show you guys Honda has had in the works and where they plan to end up:

2018 - 2019 Honda Side by Side Models - Announcement / Release

Remember the ole Big Red that originally kicked it off for Honda in the SxS world? Man oh man was that an ugly piece haha. Let’s get back on topic now…

I for one don’t want them to rush whatever they’ve got coming, whether it be the baddest sport Side by Side we’ve ever seen in 2019 etc as part of what we all can say we like about the Honda brand is reliability and a well-built machine that actually had R&D and wasn’t just slapped together in a month and rushed to market while being plagued with issues and safety recalls etc.

Here’s another shot to show you guys a little at what’s in the works for the manufacturing plant in South Carolina that can’t hold the capacity that they want to run at the way it is. This has been known for a few months now though as Honda made it public at how much they were spending and what was going on etc. This dives more into what’s in store…

Honda South Carolina ATV & Side by Side Manufacturing Plant

Well guys, that’s it for the entire 2018 Honda Side by Side / UTV / SxS (waay too many names for the same thing!) and 2018 ATV Model Lineup. As always, love to hear your opinions and that’s why I keep the comment section below so post up. Honda also made it clear in this last update that they follow forums etc to see what people have to say etc so they know what we all want to see – but will they give it to us? Only time will tell…

* I will be updating this page over the next few hours with little bits of more information and pictures. 


  • Sam

  • Jon Jon Giles

    So that’s officially it for 2018 Honda ATV models? There will be no new Rincon 1000 or update to their top utility ATV’s of any kind? Sigh… guess I’ll get a 500 Rubicon or go for another brand.. they had my money if they would’ve released a new updated 700, 800, 1000, or whatever. But I guess it isn’t happening.. again. Please clarify to make sure.

  • Brandon Vineyard

    Well I agree with Sam for my wish list. I have the Pioneer 1000-5 deluxe which is great for the family but my wife and I was looking to purchase a sport. I was hoping Honda would deliver but looks like I’m gonna have to go with Can-Am now. SAD DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jim

    This is very disappointing. I delayed a decision for quite a while hoping to hear some information on a sport machine. At this point I can’t afford to keep waiting when I have no idea how much longer it will be, if ever. I’m a big Honda fan and its hard for me to do this, but I’ll probably end up buying another brand. I might end up with a P1000 with fox shocks, but was looking for something a bit more sporty. Honda is clearly not a leader in innovation anymore. They only innovate or make changes when they have to, and its usually years behind schedule. I’m finally throwing in the towel because I need something for this summer. I’ll revisit my assessment in a few years, but for now, Honda is losing a customer.

    • Justin Witt

      I too am very disappointed with Honda been too many years in the making, I mean for crying out loud the Rincon on doesn’t even have power steering, they’ve lost a very loyal customer who has owned nothing but Hondas since 1985.

  • Garret Lockburner

    Lame!! The pioneer 700 is just a joke its a complete turd. The pioneer 500 should have a 600 twin in it and used in the Rubicon. The Pioneer 700 Should be a 800 twin and also used in the Rincon and drop the 3 speed trans and use trans out of the Pioneer 1000. The pioneer 1000 just give it a little bump in power 5 HP be good, and the come up with a ATV to use the pioneer 1000 motor and trans in. Some place there needs to be a 2 up ATV. Rincon, Rubicon be good models to do it to, as long as they have updated power plants if not its not worth it. Also no reason to have so many sub models of everything. The Foreman and Rancher leave them as the work horse rigs. Where does Honda look to find what people want 1990 survay?? Just my 2 cents.

  • Dan Shirey

    Honda better get in the game soon, or they will be forgotten.
