Mean Mower

So much for the John Deere

Honda Fast Lawn Mower Goes Zero To Sixty In Four Seconds

A Honda fast lawn mower with the ability to top 100 mph has been designed for people who like to cut their lawn but don't want to spend more than a few seconds doing it.

The supercharged grass-cutting machine was announced by Honda UK and Team Dynamics. Dubbed the Mean Mower, the Honda fast lawn mower can chug along at 15 mph for people who want to use the vehicle for its intended purpose, but it can also top off at close to 130 mph for those with a racing spirit.

The Mean Mower got it start as a different model, the Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor, but then developers replaced the 20 hp motor with a supercharged, 1,000 cc V-twin that actually comes from the Honda VTR1000 Firestorm sport. The lawn mower also got the bike's six-speed transmission and a stronger suspension to handle a set of ATV wheels and tires. The developers threw in a Cobra racing seat for good measure.

In all the lawn mower can go zero to 60 mph in about four seconds.
