A suede-wrapped custom Sparco steering wheel controls the Kelgate-sourced steering rack. There’s no power assist, so be prepared to use some muscle to get the Mean Mower turning at parking-lot speeds. Get some speed however and steering effort becomes minimal with a direct, calculated feel. Small movements net big direction changes, if you desire. Since there’s no suspension you feel every crack, bump, and ripple in the road and the Mean Mower delivers a visceral riding experience. From the scream of the engine to the whine of the drivetrain, it all works together to make you feel like you’re moving faster than you probably are.
