Honda Mean Mower can go from zero to sixty in four seconds

Honda has teamed up with British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) partner, Team Dynamics, to work on a lawn mower that could run so fast it would immediately become the world's fastest lawn mower to date.

Enter the Mean Mower, a cool-looking lawn mower that can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in four seconds. And to top all of that, the mower can hit the grass running up to 130mph. Of course, expect this tiny angry beast to roar like crazy. Honda claims that, at top speed, it can roar up to 130db - a sound equivalent to a marching band composed of 200 members. So, expect your neighbors to wake up each time you jump on this thing.

Sometimes you'd wonder why Honda would create such a noisy and fast lawn mower. The main idea, Honda says, is to create a super-fast mower that could still cut grass. Perhaps, just maybe, it would be useful if your lawn is as wide as a giant football field.

Under the hood is a 1000cc Honda VTR Firestorm engine. Honda also used a bespoke suspension and wheels from an ATV as well as a custom-made Cobra sports seat, a Scorpion exhaust system, and a steering rack taken from a Morris Minor.

The Honda Mean Mower is already operational in status. In fact, it has been tested by reigning BTCC champion and Honda Yuasa Racing driver Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden. You can watch Shedden cut grass in the video just right after the break.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
