Watch The World’s Fastest Lawn Mower Does The Goodwood Hillclimb

Prior to challenging the current record holder of the world’s fastest lawn mower held by Norwegian Per-Kristian Laundefaret in a modified Viking T6 mower, Honda has brought its 2018 Honda Mean Mower V2 to Goodwood to showoff what it got. Thanks to the good folks over at Goodwood Road & Racing and the existence of YouTube, we get to see it in action and boy, was it pretty damn surreal. I mean, it is not everyday you see a lawn mower going at speeds, isn’t it? Continue reading Watch The World’s Fastest Lawn Mower Does The Goodwood Hillclimb

This Is Honda UK’s Contender For An Even Faster Lawn Mower…

Yes. You heard that right. There’s a race for the faster lawn mower. OK. Maybe not, but it is true that Honda UK seems to have a thing for the need for speed… on the lawn. You probably don’t need to make 0-60 in 4 seconds when trimming the lawn, but if you do feel like it, the 2018 Honda Mean Mower V2 will be the mower of choice. Honda Mean Mower V2 is Honda UK’s bet in regaining its title as the fastest lawn mower and while it clearly is a ride-on grass trimmer, its design appears to be more track-focus. Yes. Lawn mower. Track focus. Continue reading This Is Honda UK’s Contender For An Even Faster Lawn Mower…

Sadly, This Wooden Honda Motocompo Is Not A Real Scooter

When I first laid eyes on the Lasercompo, I was completely smitten. I was thinking, “damn, this all-wood bike is crazy awesome. Is it even real?” Well, alas, it isn’t. I mean. It is real, but only as a scale model kit or 1/6th scale, to be precise. Bugger. At least it isn’t a concept. Something you can physically touch. Just that you can’t ride it like the actual Honda Motocompo, the adorable city scooter from the 80s, which it drew its inspiration from. But it can definitely go into the trunk of the tiniest car like the real deal and do so with a lot more space to spare. Continue reading Sadly, This Wooden Honda Motocompo Is Not A Real Scooter

Honda Civic Type R BTCC Is How A Civic Type R Should Look Like

Remember I ranted how bad looking the 10th generation Honda Civic was when it was unveiled? To our dismay, the Type R, with the aeros and all, isn’t any better. It was a tad better at best. Well, it looks like not all hopes are lost. As it turns out, it CAN be saved and the Halfords Yuasa Racing Honda Civic Type R-based BTCC race car is the living proof. If Honda designers need a good reference what race-bred looks like, this is it. It has everything a race-bred car have and should have, including fat wheel arches, slow slung ride hide, front splitter and the works. Continue reading Honda Civic Type R BTCC Is How A Civic Type R Should Look Like

K-Speed’s Custom Super Power Cub Is What 2018 Honda Super Cub Should Be

We saw the 2018 Honda Super Cub. TBH, we are hardly impressed, but this one here, a custom by K-Speed, is a whole new ball game. It made us wish the 2018 Honda Super Cub launched recently in Thailand did actually looked like this. I mean, seriously, Honda should be looking to K-Speed to design their Cubs. Period. I am sure the cafe racer style will appeal to many bike enthusiasts. Anyways, this stunning Super Cub (dubbed Super Power Cub) you see here was the result when Honda roped in Thailand-based K-Speed to create a custom version to mark the launch of the new model. Now, come on, tell me that you guys aren’t even a bit impressed. Continue reading K-Speed’s Custom Super Power Cub Is What 2018 Honda Super Cub Should Be

Honda’s Iconic Cub EZ 90 Got Upsized In This Modern Homage Example

What you see here is scooter that is not quite a scooter. Underneath the custom body that (almost) completely concealed the innards is Honda’s quirky X-ADV, an “adventure scooter” (but not really quite). Yep. It is in fact a XXL size of the cult-classic from the 1990s, the Honda Cub EZ 90. From Italy custom bike maestro, Deus Milano, with some help from another Milan great, Kaos Design, this upsized “Cub EZ 90” is the homage to the original and yes, it is actually the X-ADV. The result is stunning and with a glance, you are transported back in time… to 1991. Continue reading Honda’s Iconic Cub EZ 90 Got Upsized In This Modern Homage Example

Honda Will Now Sell You A 306HP Civic Type R Crate Motor For $6.5K+

I think the new Honda Civic is shit-ass ugly and if you ask me, I’d stack it up along Apple AirPods in the ugliness department. Sorry, but not sorry. If you are on the same page as me (yay, high-five!), but are like me, totally drawn to its inner beauty, i.e. its fast and furious 2L i-VTEC DI Turbocharged motor that makes the Type R the fastest front-wheel-drive production car in the world, well, here is a piece of very good news for you. You need not to put up with an ugly shit car for the engine because Honda is selling you one. The engine, I mean. Yes. Really. Honda North America has announced at this year’s SEMA the availability of the Civic Type R Crate Motor, designated K20C1.

Honda’s Cute Robot Vehicle Is Basically Your Autonomous Food Truck

Autonomous cart isn’t new, but the one Honda recently showed off, called RoboCas Concept, at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show is worthy of a mention, just for the cuteness alone. Honda refers RoboCas Concept to as “a unique form of electric mobility,” but it really is a smart cart. It looks like vehicle straight out of Pixar animation. It has a cargo space which is customizable as you see fit and oh, yes, it can carry people too. You know, it ain’t tiny as you can see from the images we have here. It can be everything you imagine it to be, ranging from a cargo hauler to mobile DJ console to a curry shop. Yep. That too. In short, it can be a food truck of sort.

2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

While I agree the new Honda Civic is sporty-looking by nature, I am not all for the looks. I don’t know. It looks to me like there are just way too many things going on the exterior that makes it looks so… messy, but my perception could change if it has a 2L i-VTEC DI Turbo motor with 306 horsepower and a hefty 295 lb-ft (400 Nm!) of torque like the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R has to offer, which, btw, is happens to be the most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever. Now, you see why the leeway I had for the look that I wasn’t that impressed with? Continue reading 2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

Honda’s Riding Assist Technology Self-balances A Bike Without Gyroscope

Apart from the threat from other road users, motorcycle riders have another big concern: keeping the bike from falling over when coming to a rest or in slow traffic. That has been a problem that riders of past and present learned to deal with, but thankfully, it won’t be pass on to the future (or perhaps even near future) – thanks to Honda’s innovative Riding Assist. As of now, technology by the way of gyroscope is one option to keep a two-wheeler, or even single-wheel, vehicle upright without the rider performing circus act, but that, to Honda, is just way too cumbersome and could potentially alter the ride experience. So, instead, the Riding Assist leverages on the company’s robotics technology originally for Honda UNI-CUB self-balancing personal mobility device.
