    There is a complaints thread, but what do you like about it, other than being a Honda? Anything that sets it apart from others?

    I like it has a Roof
    Air intake looks much better location
    bed is nice and deep (better than expected at least)
    seats look nice and ready for 4pt Harness

    I like the bed as well. Its probably the biggest in the category. Almost big enough to tempt me to buy one. The seats look pretty sweet. Some of the interior is nice. I think it's a good machine and exactly what I expected. Anyone that was expecting it to complete with a turbo or x3 should have known better.

    I think the 15 inch wheel is too much for a 28 inch tire, but most guys are gonna upgrade anyhow, so this opens up a HUGE selection (truck tires) without having to dump $500-$800 on new wheels. I think that's kinda nice.

    I like their design on the 4 link trailing arms on the R model I think it's going to hold up and perform very well. Interior looks to be very comfy. Glad to see a thread on what folks like. We've all waited for a long time for Honda to drop a sport sxs and so far all I've seen is a bunch of complaining over what folks don't like.

    I was hoping for it to compare to non turbo vehicles, like the Maverick Sport, Rzr 1000, YXZ, and Wildcat XX. I think it does that.

    I also like that the 4wd is a switch now instead of a lever.. hopefully can be engaged on the fly?

    Im wondering about the gas pedal, is it drive by wire or not? Might help with the jumpiness that many experience with the pioneer.

    Transmission and low range! I also like the overall looks, suspension, cockpit looks comfortable, good bed size, reasonable power rating.
    (My biggest hangup is it not having manual locking differential in front)

    I wish it was a knob like my truck. I wish the LE had a knob. Its 2019 and they quit using cables on trucks 20 years ago!

    Suspension travel numbers
    Hi/Low gearing
    Maybe trivial, but the passenger grab bar adjusting setup looks pretty nice
    The stepped foot wells sound like a nice idea
    Overall creature comfort stuff looks/sounds nice to me

    Everything.
    104hp is plenty.
    73mph is too fast.
    Glad they added the passenger T-bar.
    Love the red.
    The accessorized model looks bad ass.
    Add 32" tires and it will be a beast.

    First and foremost, I like the simple fact that Honda is now officially in the sport sxs game finally. Which means aftermarket should pick up now for Honda.
    2. Same motor "platform".... means to me, at an expensive cost one could get the parts to mod the pioneer. :)
    3. I really like the looks of inside the cab, and can't wait to sit in one.
    4. The infinitely adjustable T-Bar is great!
    5. The 4 link + rear suspension. (I secretly wished they would of put more protection to the axle like the wildcat but oh well)

    Yeah. Patents list re-use of the frame as part of the patent.

    A bigger gauge cluster in front of the steering wheel and having an area to mount a tablet or i-pad in the center console would of been a better idea to me. Watching the videos of them it looks like the suspension in the back acts like the old maverick xrs. donkey punches you in the back of the head. The comment in the one test drive video where it says the faster you go the smoother it gets = not good at lower speed trail riding to me that means it acts just like my old maverick. I sold it for that main reason after spending about $3000.00 in suspension mods trying to get it to smoothen out at slower trail speeds.

    I look at my guage cluster as little as possible. I'm busy riding and I definitely don't want a tablet in my face while I'm out enjoying nature cruising trails and drinking beers.
