Welcome back.
You would think it would have a bigger engine than 500 with all the extra weight.

Welcome back.

A friend of mine got one of those recently and really likes it. Just him and his wife when they ride, so a two seater was perfect for him.

So, in answer to your question:
1 - The Pioneer does a much better job of hauling two people than the Rancher did. For example, I would never have gotten my 300lb dad to ride on the Rancher with me, with arms around my waist...you get the picture. But this little Pioneer 500 is awesome with my dad and I together on a ride.
2 - I could only afford the Pioneer 500. The 700 or 1000 or pretty much anything bigger than the 500 was out of reach for my strict budget. So that's where $ played a limiting factor. I wanted something bigger before I even purchased the P500, that's not a question. But for the price of a Honda Foreman I got a SxS...with a Foreman engine in it. As soon as I can afford it, I will get something bigger.

Not sure about his application, because he may have picked up a hold over, but 2018's are out there and info on the 19's are available. For the 2019's, additional colors will be available, i.e., yellow, white, https://powersports.honda.com/pioneer/500/home.aspx
I would have preferred a white 2019, but they were out of my price range.

I now have made the connection between Southwest/Creed. Personally, I'm delighted and thrilled for you to get something knowing how much you enjoyed the Rancher. I also look forward to seeing some videos and comments along with way regarding the P500. Knowing you, those factory tires will be worn down soon given the ability to ride on hard surfaces unlike here, LOL.

You can PM me on the side and I will share some ideas on how to make the ride even more enjoyable..
Yessir! I will PM you pronto. You've probably seen the upgrades I've done so far as shown on the Honda SxS Club, including new wheels, tires etc.

I know you care and that's why you're expressing concern. However, these photos may help alleviate your concern...
