Honda Made A 134+ MPH Mean Mower Mk. 2

Honda has its hands in everything from airplanes to automobiles but one of the company’s more popular divisions is its lawn and garden unit.

To help promote the company’s lineup of tractors and mowers, the company worked with their British Touring Car Championship partner, Team Dynamics, to create the Mean Mower. The high-performance lawn tractor was unveiled in 2013 and it featured a 1.0-liter V-twin motorcycle engine sourced from a Honda VTR Firestorm.

The tractor was also equipped with an assortment of other upgrades and this enabled the model to produce 109 hp (81 kW). While that doesn’t sound like much, it enabled the Mean Motor to set a Guinness World Record for being the fastest lawn mower. During a run at the DIADA Proving Ground in Spain, the mower was able to hit speeds of 116 mph (187 km/h) which was almost 30 mph (48 km/h) faster than the previous record.

Honda’s record was recently broken so the company has created an all-new Mean Mower called the Mk. 2. Billed as a successor to the original model, the latest mower will be powered by a 1.0-liter four-cylinder engine sourced from the CBR1000R Fireblade. It produces 189 hp (141 kW) and 84 lb-ft (114 Nm) of torque.

Honda says the Mk. 2 is absolutely “wild” and will be able to hit a top speed in excess of 134 mph (215 km/h). That’s not too shabby as the mower is faster than some automobiles.

The mower will be driven by Jessica Hawkins who is a former British karting champion and competes in the Mini Challenge for Excelr8 Motorsport.

    Hmmm… A funny idea, but I love it. What’s next? A Honda Mean Mower Type R, perhaps? 😊

    Btw, I would like to see an Accord Type R and a Jazz/City/HRV Type R. At least if not in full-blown Type-R guise, they could do it in some Type-R-ish , like Audi does S-Line or BMW does M-Sport to their model.

    More Type-R would be a very nice addition to current line of Honda. If Mercedes does AMG-ize to all their models, BMW does M-ize to all their series, Audi does RS-ize to all their lines, why can’t Honda do R-Type to all their cars?

      There actually was an Accord Type R back in the day but it seems to be forgotten by history to some extent.
