    We have been told that many dealers will not be getting the quantity they ordered until late 2013 or early 14.
    Bad news...
    But good news is Honda is hard at work on them and will insure your Pioneer is built with high quality.

    Sure didn't want to hear that. I was in touch with my dealer today and was told that they haven't been able to get too much info yet from the Honda reps.They did say that they were supposed to be meeting with them sometime this week and hopefully would have some answer's for me. Doesn't look to hopefull that I'll be driving one this year.

    Well, I guess Honda does have a work load cut out for them. I'm sure they are trying to evaluate if the Pioneer will be a better seller then the Big Red. If they play it safe they did not plan for the demand to be as high as it is. If they out sale there plan it will take a while for them to catch up.

    It was described to me that dealerships are under a ordering program with Honda. When they sell and title one machine, the program automatically orders a new machine.

    I'm guessing that if they have a few BigRed's in their inventory, they may have to sell them first. On the other hand, if the BigRed and the Pioneer are considered two different categories, maybe the program allows new orders despite the older inventory or maybe the dealer doesn't want to put out the funds to order more.

    I do find it ironic how most dealers cannot say when they'll receive their first Pioneer, while one dealership I know is expecting some within weeks.
    I am thinking however, that once the Pioneer is out in public view, the demand will continue to grow till the market is satisfied and sales settle into a managed pace.

    Thats whats going to make it harder/longer for some of us to have to wait to see one in our garage.I figured by putting $$ down on one that it would hopefully speed up getting one. It should be like who ever puts money down should get one before some one who walks in, see's one and wants to buy one.Not fair to us who have paid a good chunk of $$ and have to wait longer. At least thats how I feel.

    If a dealer takes in a deposit, by all means they are obligated to complete the sale to the depositor as units become available.

    In my case, the dealer will not take deposits until units are available to sell. What they have done is compile a calling list in order of requests. I was number 6, but have moved to to 3 or 4 as some didn't want to wait and bought a BigRed that was available.

    Good things are worth waiting for!

    Ya, several dealers we have called have also said they will not take a deposit. They were making a call list and would call when they arrived. They could not give me a delivery time frame.

    My dealer has a 700-4 ordered for stock and he said the delivery date was sometime in August. He said by putting money down on a pioneer -2 I would get it sooner than waiting for one that would be in stock. I gave him $500 down in June but they weren't allowed to order the two seater untill July. The delivery date was sept. He said by getting my order in earlier I may get it sooner but reading some of these posts by the sounds of it I may not. It doesn't matter ill get it sooner or later.

    The salesperson from the dealership I'm working with has told me that the owner is actually going to buy and title one of each to himself so that there will always be a demo available on site. Since they will be titled to him, they will automatically have a re-order status.

    I put a deposit on the first Pioneer 700-4 in at my local dealer. They ordered 4 but where only authorized for 1. They believe they will be getting one sometime in August. They don't know what color it will be, but regardless, I'm sure I will take it! Also, I bought mine for quite a bit under MSRP, without a destination charge.

    I suggest if anyone wants a pioneer ,that they put down a deposit and pre-order it. If you are waiting for your dealer to have one in stock that isn't spoken for,you could be waiting a while.

    @Swamper. Thats sweet... I bet you are excited.... I am just thinking I could see them in the next few weeks...
    Did they give you a expected date or anything. Somebody was saying the 10th or something.

    @wilyrockstar, what price did they give you?

    I'm told the Pioneer 4's leave SC Aug 6th and first one should b available at dealers the following week. I was quoted $700 below retail-no destination charges from one dealer. Another dealer quoted me $900 above retail. Shop around fellas some dealers want to stick it to you.

    I've been told to expect them in our store approximately August 8. That info came from a friend who also pre-ordered. I think he is number 3 on the list. I'm number 1!

    @rumrunner - I got mine for $10,800 - so did my buddy - plus tax, title and ORV sticker. When I priced shopped they were by far the cheapest. I was quoted MSRP plus $300 at another dealer.

    UPDATE: My Pioneer is shipping on Monday the 12th of August. It should be here in the middle of that week and ready for pickup by the end of the week! This came from the dealer's inventory tracking which shows the shipments scheduled from Honda. Another good bit of news, mine is coming RED!

    Can anyone else confirm when they are getting theirs?
