Honda & Top Gear unveil the Mean Mower [video]



Has a theoretical top speed of roughly 130 mph (209 km/h)

Honda and Top Gear Magazine have teamed up to create the "Mean Mower."
Based on the HF2620 tractor, the Mean Mower was stripped and re-built by Honda's British Touring Car experts at Team Dynamics. As a result, it's an oddity worthy of the Stig.
Notable highlights include a spaceframe chassis, a bespoke suspension and a fiberglass mowing deck. There's also two electric motors that spin 3mm thick steel blades at 4000 rpm.
Power is provided by a 1000cc Honda VTR Firestorm motorbike engine that produces 109 bhp (81 kW) and 71 lb-ft (96 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed paddle-shift transmission which, theoretically, enables the mower to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds and hit a top speed of roughly 130 mph (209 km/h).
According to TopGear Magazine's Piers Ward, "Having driven it, I've never been so terrified. It accelerates like a rocket and, like any mower, there aren't any seatbelts."
