Ok decided to start a new thread instead of doing it under Good Morning.

Came home Monday afternoon and it was setting in the driveway. Been impressed with the power it has compared to the lack of it (at least on hills) with the Xuv550S4. Yes a HP increase and sure more torque , plus 3 speed auto transmission compared to CVT. Both 4 seaters, having the cover on at present time , taking some getting used to putting something in the bed of , of course with side doors and open them like a 4 dr car,truck. Guessing the rear axle is a positraction , so far I've used 4 wd one time to see if it did work, it did helped but was doing OK in 2wd.
So here are a few more photos.

Really nice looking rig Gene. Sorry the Deere didn't work out, but hey, it is what it is. The rear seat arrangement is what I like. It doesn't look like it makes for such a long wheelbase machine as the Deere 馃徏

Sorry for the mixup on the last few photos ,, tried to edit and told me I wasn't allowed to do so.. OH WELL.

ColonyPark Thanks ,,, yea the few things that have sold me when , the sales person took me down in a ditch ,backed up and then went up the other side, went out across the top of ditch , back down in the ditch again came up out the ditch , back across in an out of ditch .. All IN 2WD....

The folding seats was one of the reasons for changing, yes it is shorter by 30" . The 3 speed transmission but the biggest reason having a water cooled engine instead of air cooled and being EFI and not having a carb.

Failed to mention you can see the new LED lights beside the windshield...

30" is a huge difference in length, especially when the 4 wheelers and side by sides seem to just keep getting bigger . I would say the 3spd over the CVT would be a biggie too. I know I am
underwhelmed by the CVT in my Subaru, although that may be a whole other ball of wax. Hope you and the family have fun with this Honda馃徏

Yea when the building your parking the sxs in is only 12' and the machine is 12' just a slight angle off and overhead door Will NOT CLOSE...

This afternoon went for the 5-6 week haircut . The young lady that cuts my hair lives about 12 miles from here, was going to take the scooter for maybe the last ride of the year.. Nope took the Pioneer. Taking all the side roads and direct routes cut the trip to 8 miles each way, but I had fun, plus it took longer.:bigthumb:

Would love to be able to do something like that around here, but between police and complaining people, it's a no go

There are a couple of Gator 825is that are licensed in my area. But I would not dare have my Kawasaki Mule on the public roads, just asking for a handful of tickets. Or worse if someone runs me down. The Mule tops out at about 25mph.

Also what was the red plug you were talking about?

The middle SXS is like the one we got. guessing the front one on right is 700 2 seater. Recent Posts | The Honda Side by Side Club!

The new 1000cc is the one on the left

OK the red plug , come to find out if I would have used the red plug ( to get power for the LED lights) I would have need a adapter plug plus some other deal.. Never found it anyway , and didn't look hard.. The 12v cigarette socket wiring was right in front , easy to get to, plus it turns off when the key was turned off.

I wish I would come home one day and find something like that dropped off for me in my driveway. :bigthumb:

And Santa is not even scheduled for a few more weeks. What a lucky guy you are!

What's the top speed on the Honda SxS? Thinking about moving up to this from my Polaris RZR 570 but top speed will definitely be a consideration. The RZR is governor limited to 55mph.

The two seater and the 4 seater we have Pioneer 700 is limited to 43 mph.

Just found this info , the 1000 has a speed transmission and dual clutch
also here is more info.
Pioneer 1000 Engine Performance Numbers / Details:

2016 Pioneer 1000 Horsepower: 72 HP
Pioneer 1000 Top Speed: 67 MPH via Electronic Speed Limiter
2016 Pioneer 1000-5 Horsepower: 72 HP
Pioneer 1000-5 Top Speed: 67 MPH via Electronic Speed Limiter

Hope this helps.

Oh he was proud as a peacock, his grandma had left him drive it most of the afternoon.

You even meet the nicest deer on a Honda. :lol::lol:
