Honda’s “Mean Mower” Goes 150 MPH & I Want One

From the age of like 12, all the way to somewhere around 40, mowing the lawn sucks. When you hit 40 and trade in your trendy Nike Frees for those New Balance dad sneaks you bought at Kohls, you finally start to enjoy it. Then, and only then, mowing the lawn becomes part of your badge of your certified dadhood.

Until then, you just want to get it over with as fast as possible and this new lawn mower from Honda might be the answer. As a kid that grew up on a 14 acre property in Western Illinois, mowing the lawn was an all-day ordeal, so long as you had nothing else to do that day. If you did, then you could easily stretch it into a two day project, slowly sucking the soul out of your existence.

Well, the good folks at Team Dynamics understand your pain and fitted an HF 2622 mower with all the custom parts they could find. By using a 999cc four-cylinder from a Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP motorcycle, Team Dynamics gave the mower 190 hp and a top speed somewhere around 150 mph, breaking the lawn mower land speed record.

My only question is… where the fuck was this when I was a kid?
