Jorge Lorenzo: The Lawn Mower – Video
If you thought only Honda made lawn mowers, think again. Little known fact: Yamaha makes a limited supply of uber high-end grass cutters every year, and they even come with an operator. In this case, none other than former MotoGP champion, Jorge Lorenzo, seen here landscaping the grounds at the Valencia circuit.
As with any limited production item, good luck trying to find one. And when you do, operating costs are quite high, which explains why very few have been spotted in your neighborhood. Of course, Yamaha’s lawn mower operates slightly differently than your average lawn mower. The latest model is powered by a 1000cc four-cylinder with six forward gears. And instead of blades in the traditional sense, the operator’s knee does all the trimming.
Let Lorenzo give you a visual demonstration in the video below.
