Default Would You Believe A 150 MPH Lawnmower? Honda Has One

Honda has an interesting Skunk Works, you know, the place where interesting automotive engineering issues are proposed. A couple of years ago, they put together the Mean Mower V1, a lawnmower that was supposed to his 100 mph and more very quickly. The automaker did, but someone else did an even quicker job. Now, Honda's back with an even quicker MM V2. It hits100 in a little over 6 seconds and tops out at 151. You have to wonder how long it would take to do your yard (you can, you know).





Way down in the secret Skunk Works at Honda – below the new-car development folks, the racing contingent with their wildly screaming powerplants, the motorcycle area with its special two-wheelers – there’s another little-known division, the lawnmower division.

They are out to prove that they can out-crazy, crazy. A couple of years ago, they put together what, at that time, was the world’s fastest riding lawnmower (Mean Mower V1). It was a rather special machine that could reach 116 mph in seconds and topped out at 134. Mean Mower V1, their first entry in the weird world of high-speed lawnmowers, was a Guinness Book record-holder for a bit, until an even more crazed individual tuned another lawn flyer that went even faster.
