The exciting 2014 model year continues as American Honda introduces four brand-new models that clearly demonstrate the incredibly wide reach of Honda engineering; this is the kind of innovation Honda enthusiasts have come to expect over the years. In addition to these all-new models, this announcement also includes a number of successful and favorite returning models.
“This is really a fun time for Honda fans, as we unveil these four incredibly cool all-new machines for 2014 that reach out to entirely different segments of the market,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “This introduction serves as a perfect example of what 2014 is going to be like for Honda, as we continue to bring diverse and completely new concepts to riders, no matter what kind of machines they might favor.”
“Earlier this year we introduced the first of our new side-by-side Pioneer line, the 700-4, and now we’re announcing our second model to the Pioneer line: the tough and hard-working Pioneer 700 side-by-side thats fully featured and will be priced competitively. Next up is the friendly and fun-loving Grom, an easy-to-handle package that makes you grin when you see it and keeps you grinning as you ride. And we have the impressive new Forza scooter, a very able 300-class machine with strong performance and economical operation for solo riding or two-up travel. We also have an awesome all-new motocross machine, the CRF250R, which has been completely redesigned for 2014 along the lines of the new-generation CRF450R.
“These four new models along with more Honda favorites returning for the new model year demonstrate that Honda is on the move for 2014. Well be bringing you even more exciting news in the coming months, so keep your eyes on Honda.”
In 2014, Honda’s Pioneer 700 sets the standard as the ultimate in hard-working, hard-playing side-by-sides. Whether you’re off to the job site or a weekend adventure in the woods, this newest version carries two people and a load of gear and supplies—up to 1000 pounds—to those spots that are especially tough to reach.
Quick acceleration, good top speed and smooth-riding long-travel suspension are some of the keys to what makes the Pioneer 700 so special. The handy tilt bed adds lots of versatility, and being a Honda, it also features industry-leading safety features—plus outstanding value.
