The YBravo appears to have the same engine as the commercial Honda at a much higher price. Maybe I am reading the specs wrong but I'll stick with Honda.

The Ybravo is MSRP price on the website. My 21" ybravo was $795 at the dealer. The best price on the Honda around here is $1099.

I have just got my 38th account in 4 months. In my limited experience, if you must use a 21" your not being productive. I only have 2 of accounts I need my 21" on. Going forward if I can't run a 32" bare minimum I won't be taking that account. Cut is better and less tire tracks, all around better finish. I will put my tbar 32" against the end product of any 21" with it's tire tracks. Can't stand the tracks. Ordered 36" and my 32" will be my small mower.

Ybravo 25...handles like a 21 ...kinda a no brainer....Honda GXV160. If no dealers in your area no biggie ...I'm not about to run to a dealer to hold my hand for some nickel and.dime part swap if an.issue arises. The time wasted in dropping off and picking up from.dealer.

Ybravo has a high vent bag for both 21 and 25. 25 has the edge over their 21 in wet grass. Yes....the high vent bag makes a.noticeable difference when mowing tall soaked fine fiscue grass.

No, haven't received the high vent bag for the 25 yet. It's not showing on the parts list on the site yet either. We mostly bag St Augustine with the 25 so the standard bag works fine. We have some back yards with pools that are bermuda that we use the 21 on, and the high vent bag definitely works better when it's wet.

If you place the Honda and the YBravo side by side the YBravo looks better built. More "commercial" if you will.

Same with me. Though I wish I would have just skipped the 21" and got the 25 from the start.
