That’s right, that is a Honda. Specifically, it is a 2015 Pioneer 500, a side-by-side. That means it can carry two people, side-by-side.  (Clever.)

It has a 475-cc four-stroke engine. It is 50 inches wide and has a 73.1-inch wheelbase.

Last week, the Pioneer 500 went into production at the Honda of South Carolina Manufacturing plant in Timmonsville, South Carolina. The plant had a $27-million investment to facilitate the production of the off-road vehicle. The Pioneer 700 and Pioneer 700-4 models went into production there in June 2013. The plant has been producing ATVs since July 1998.
