Cutting the lawn can be a tedious chore, so no-one wants to be doing it for longer than they must. The bods at Honda obviously feel the same way. The Honda Mean Mower has broken a Guinness World Record to become the world's fastest lawnmower.  Read More

Honda estimates its smart home will generate a surplus of 2.6 MWh of electricity

With homes and light-vehicles accounting for roughly 44 percent of total greenhouse gases emitted in the US, neutralizing these emissions would certainly go a long way towards a clean energy future. What if these sources of pollution could not only be nullified, but play an active role in reducing our environmental footprint? Such is the thinking behind the Honda Smart Home US unveiled last week, which generates enough solar energy to power both car and home, with a little left over to feed back into the grid.  Read More

The front-wheel-drive pocket rocket market is likely to become all four-wheel-drive in the...

If you were compiling a list of the world’s sportiest front wheel drive cars, you’d no doubt start with names like the MINI Cooper S, Volkswagen Golf GTI or Scirocco R, Ford Focus RS500 or Taurus SHO, Honda Integra Type R, Vauxhall/Opel Vectra or Astra VXR models, Peugeot 205 GTi, Alfa Romeo 147 or 156 GTA models, Nissan Altima Coupe, Mazda speed3, one of the Renaultsport Meganes, or if you’re a little older perhaps the Lotus Elan, Lancia Fulvia, Fiat Abarth or Volvo S80 T6.

Hero MotoCorp CEO Pawan Munjal called the slew of new motorcycles his company showed at the recent New Delhi Auto Expo "the dawn of a new era," and it wasn't just PR speak.

Hero Motocorp suddenly seems more than capable of replacing Honda's technology, it also se...

Hero Motocorp’s RNT hybrid turbo-diesel-electric motorcycle prototype might well begin a new phase in the development of the motorcycle as an all-purpose utility vehicle offering life solutions well beyond just mobility, particularly in rural areas and the developing world where the scooter is both the family car and an all-purpose haulage vehicle. Its 150 cc diesel engine produces 35 Nm of torque at just 1600 rpm, with an optional turbocharger which will double both those figures. A 1.3 hp electric front wheel motor gives the bike two-wheel drive. The RNT’s generator can output 1500 W of 230V electrical power continuously, making it ideal as a portable power source, and the LED headlight unclips to offer a portable and powerful light source. Large flat loading surfaces front and rear plus numerous mounting handles indicate a long overdue rethink of how the scooter is used in many parts of the world.  Read More

The Honda UNI-CUB β has no conventional accelerator, brake or steering mechanism, yet it i...

“It has a top speed of 6 km/h, it balances itself, and you couldn’t crash it if you tried. How can you possibly see that as one of the biggest thrills of your life?” That was the response from an automotive journalist colleague at the Tokyo Motor Show after I eulogized riding Honda’s UNI-CUB β personal mobility device. After a lifetime of journalism covering every form of technology, cars, motorcycles and "boys toys,” from driving and riding exotica worth a decade's wages, this was one the greatest thrills I had experienced – being one of the first to ride a landmark personal transportation device as important as Henry Ford’s Model T.  Read More
