The 2018 Honda Pioneer 700 Deluxe and Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec are two middleweight adventure UTVs that share quite a bit in common.

Like many of you, I like to get my need for speed fulfilled with the big horsepower UTVs that are readily available. However, if you asked most of us here which machines we enjoy and spend most of our time in, the smaller machines usually make the list. For that reason, I’m going to have two of my personal favorite face off by the numbers; the 2018 Honda Pioneer 700 Deluxe and the 2018 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec. These two adventure UTVs have similar engine sizes and the similarities go beyond that, although it may not look like that right off the bat.

In the article, about the Pioneer, it states "It has high and low range and a lot of torque for the engine size." We wish it had high-low. And so does every Rincon owner, which basically has the same drivetrain. It has the 3 forward gears, but no "high-low" sub-transmission.

In my opinion these are two completely different machines... If I wanted a more trail riding machine... I think I would have to go with the Wolverine... esp if they decided to put the new 850 in the rest of the lineup... this machine was a late answer to the RZR 800S. If I needed a more utility machine w/ a dump bed.. I would have to go with the Pioneer 700!!! More of an answer to the Rhino or Ranger...
