Honda Miimo mower gets Type R and Fireblade sports models
This year sees the 25th anniversaries of the Type R and Fireblade performance ranges.
The fully functioning special-edition Miimos have been created to celebrate a quarter of a century of Honda’s halo racing marques.
Miimo Type R
If you’re going to do it, do it right
Both models were subject to their own custom paint job rather than a vinyl wrap.
However, the iconic graphics were made of specialist cast wrapping film. This was then applied and sculpted around the Miimo 520’s curves.
The centre section was then wrapped in carbon fibre vinyl to match the Type R look.
In a further effort to replicate the finest detail of each model these special editions are lit.
The Fireblade model features 45 working LED head and taillights, whereas the Type R uses 40. These are all powered by USB power banks.
Introduced to the UK in 2013, Miimo is an autonomous lawnmower perfect for those wanting a beautiful lawn every day, but would rather not or cannot mow it themselves.
Self-charging, and powered by a high-performance lithium-ion battery, Miimo navigates the garden through an intelligent combination of controls, timers and real-time sensory feedback.
It stays where it needs to be thanks to a boundary wire installed under the ground or in the grass around the perimeter of the garden.
It cuts little and often. As it goes it leaves the tiny clippings to be dispersed into the lawn root system. This then acts as a natural fertiliser contributing to healthy long-term growth.
I really want my own Miimo Type R. I wonder if they’d hook me up with Type R-ing my little Honda Mobilio Spike?
