Honda Mean Mower: How Fast Can You Cut Grass?

The answer to the question in the headline is 15 mph (in this case), which is pretty damn fast, but if the lawn is good for the day, watch out, because the Honda Mean Mower has an estimated top speed of over 130 mph. Top Gear along with Honda and its British Touring Car Championship partner Team Dynamics have teamed up to create the fastest lawn mower ever. With a 1,000cc engine from a VTR Firestorm, the Mean Mower boasts 109 horsepower and a 0-60 time of just four seconds. Because let’s face it, the only way the smell of fresh cut grass can get any better is by adding 100 mph exhaust fumes to it.

2014 Honda Grom: Finally, Fun Size Leads To Fun

2014 Honda Grom motorcycle is a 125cc-shot of awesome [w/video].

I never could figure out what made those “fun size” packs of M&M’s so “fun.” Was it the excitement over guessing whether you’d get 5 or 6 candies? Not sure. But the new Honda Grom ($3,000) finally delivers fun in a fun size package. The fuel-injected 125cc single engine, 29.7-inch seat height, and 12-inch wheels might lead some to call this a scooter, but Honda says no, it’s a motorcycle, just a very scaled down one. It’s also reportedly more fun to drive than a 6 M&M’s are to eat. Check your dealer for a test drive in August.

Honda NC700X

Crossovers ain’t just for crappy rappers and Allen Iverson anymore. Honda’s NC700X is worthy of the crossover label, but in a good way. Emphasizing efficiency as well as sports performance, this is a motorcycle that you can race and commute with. Starting at $6,999, the NC700X has pilfered design elements from the Honda Fit’s 117-hp 1.5l, 16-valve SOHC i-VTEC engine, and we all know how much of a gas miser that vehicle is. Factor in a 21-liter compartment for helmet stowage, digital LCD instrument panel, and options like an automatic dual-clutch transmission with two automatic modes, as well as a paddle shifting mode, and you’re looking at quite the versatile performer when it’s released this summer.
