Honda shocked the lawn-care community with its “Mean Mower,” a ride-on tractor powered by a motorcycle engine. It’s capable of blitzing from zero to 60 miles an hour in just 4 seconds! This grass-annihilating machine is leaving Great Britain and crossing the Atlantic to make a special appearance at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Just to recap, the Mean Mower’s 1.0-liter V-twin engine packs a 109-horsepower punch. It’s mounted in a vehicle that weighs a svelte 308 pounds. Suffice to say, it’s fast. Top speed is 133 miles an hour though it can only cut grass at velocities up to 15 MPH. What a buzz-kill!
As you can imagine, it rides on a custom-built chassis and features a bespoke suspension system. The functional mower deck is constructed of fiberglass to cut weight and the rear-mounted grass bag cleverly hides the fuel tank and other greasy bits. With stats like that you could say this is the most interesting thing Honda’s built in years…
