Those of you who are in a hurry to trim that garden will be thrilled to find out Honda has come up with the fastest lawnmower in the world. Dubbed Mean Mower, the contraption has recently set a Guinness World Record, being clocked at 116 mph (187 km/h). In fact, the creation had been around for a few years, but now it has managed to beat its own record by a hefty 30 mph (48 km/h).
Still, there are a few aspects we need to discuss. First of all, the run took place on asphalt, not grass - the thing can still do what its name says, being able to cut grass at speeds up to 15 mph (24 km/h). By the way, that’s double the top speed of the original Honda HF2620 on which it is based. This requires an explanation though...

What you see here may have a body resembling the HF2620, but everything underneath the skin has changed. The chassis has been built from the gound up, while power comes from a 1,000 cc engine that was borrowed from a Honda VTR Firestorm.

The cutter deck is a bespoke effort made from fiber glass in order to keep the weight down, while the grass bag has been scrapped in the favour of a fuel tank, an oil cooler and an auxiliary water cooling radiator.

Honda’s Mean Mower tips the scales at 309 lbs (140 kg), allowing the rider to play with 109 hp. The thing can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in four seconds.

Oh and the soundtrack isn’t something you can neglect, as you’ll find out in the clip below. Honda's Mean Mower easily beats the fastest mobility scooter in the world, but then again, the latter is a DIY effort.
