50 MPH Honda Mower
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:10:35 AM »
Honda is introducing the new 190 HP mower at Goodwood Speedfest.  It has the CBR1000RR motor and mows grass as well.

190 HP, CBR1000RR motor, and it can only go 50MPH. 

Ahh the proof is in the details in the article, 50 is the max mowing speed, they intend to set a record of about 150MPH with this thing.  YEEE-HAAA where's Tim the Toolman :)

I've had 2 Honda mowers for 30 years, the only ones I have ever owned. However, neither is quite that fast.  :^)   TM

Time to trade or upgrade the old ones with a new motor.  Mow faster = more time to Ride.


But, then will the Honda mow as good as a John Deere??  I have a John Deere, which put the fun back into mowing.


As John Deere says about their mowers, "It is not how fast you mow, but how well you mow fast."

Shouldn't that be HOW well not WHO well ;)   

Or are you mowing people instead of grass

Well, at least you knew what I meant, and it was funnier that way.  But, I did correct it.
