TORRANCE, Calif. - Honda’s 2014 lineup will include a new 125cc streetbike, a second Pioneer side-by-side, a new 300-class scooter and a redesigned CRF250R motocross bike.
“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 Bill Savino, Honda’s powersports press manager.
The new Pioneer 700 is the second model in Honda’s new side-by-side line after the Pioneer 700-4 introduced earlier this year. The Pioneer 700-4 features adjustable seating to carry two, three or four people. The simpler Pioneer 700 carries up to two people.
The Pioneer 700 features a payload capacity of up to 1,000 lbs and a tilt bed. The model will come in three colors: red, olive and the new Honda Phantom Camo. Customers will be able to choose from more than 50 Honda Genuine Accessories/Honda Signature Accessories.
Honda has not yet determined pricing for the Pioneer 700, though Savino said the model will be “priced competitively.” Availability is slated for September.
The new sporty Honda Grom streetbike has a compact frame size, a low seat, an inverted front fork and hydraulic disc brakes. Honda claims the fuel-injected 125cc engine “delivers lots of torque, the four-speed manual transmission works just like any other full-sized bike, the maneuverability and handling make it a joy to ride, and there’s even room for a passenger.”
Available in August, the Grom will retail for $2,999 and come in Pearl Red and Metallic Black. (Continued.)
