Empty the clippings bag for extra weight savings

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s hot out there. Like, “don’t even bother going outside unless you wanna turn into a puddle” kinda hot. Unfortunately, I know there are more than a few out there who must brave the crazy-high temps to perform the usual weekly yard work, so speed is paramount if you don’t wanna turn into a sopping, sweaty mess. Luckily, it looks like Honda has the perfect thing to get that lawn looking trim in no time at all.

It’s called the Honda Mean Mower V2, and it recently climbed the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend. Packing a 1.0-liter inline four-cylinder from a Honda CBR 1000 RR Fireblade SP motorcycle, this thing makes upwards of 190 horsepower, which is pretty silly considering how small and lightweight it is. Apparently, Honda is aiming for a top speed in excess of 150 mph. That’ll git ‘er done.

Watching this thing tackle the Goodwood Hillclimb is pretty impressive. The driver is exposed to the elements and must constantly make tiny corrections at the wheel to keep the thing heading in a straight line. However, once the power is properly applied, the mower takes off like it was shot from a cannon, high-flying motorcycle exhaust note trailing behind.

We love it. Look for our full written review soon.
