Hi Dave:
Yes! When you release the blade control (Roto-Stop) the blades stop spinning, but the engine continues to run, and if you have the SmartDRIVE engaged, the mower will continue to self-propel.

The walking speed is determined by how far you depress the control on the handle. But also note that the control handle can be adjusted so that the mower doesn't go too fast.

Answer: 
Yes. I've used it only one day so far, but the speed is easily controlled with the thumb paddle, although it took me a few minutes to get used to that type of paddle. The harder/further you push, the faster it goes. Speed range is from STOP (although you can still push it) to quite fast.
There is also a throttle with slow and fast but the difference is minimal. The instructions say to leave it in fast

Answer: 
Yes, the one I have has 3 options: Bag, Mulch, or Discharge. For the discharge option, you simply need to set it to the Bag option, but don't attach the bag. The clippings will drop out the rear hatch.
I personally haven't used this option, as the mulching works really well, even in tall grass that is a bit moist.

I am not familiar with all models, but the "Three in One" one Honda that I have has "rear discharge". Seen in the photos is usually a mower with the bag attached. On top of the bag is a large, black plastic guard which flips down when the bag is removed. Clippings can be discharged to the rear when the bag is removed, if the "Clip Director" is set to the "BAG" position. Not having a side discharge chute allows the mower to cut close to a wall or fence in either direction. The mower can also be used as a rear discharge mower with the clip director set to partially mulch and partially discharge to the rear. When strictly mulching the bag serves no purpose and can be removed if desired. Read Less

Hi Marty:
HRX and HRR models have REAR discharge built-in. There is no option to covert either to a side-discharge design.
Honda HRS models DO HAVE a side discharge design built-in. HRS models are "no-frills" basic mowers, but feature the same GCV160 engine found on many other Honda mower models. Included here is a link to the HRS216SDA, which is a single-speed self=propelled model.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 262 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little mower For a basic mower you couldn't ask for better quality and performance. It starts on the first pull every time, and the bag always gets stuffed to the max! My only complaint, which is minor, is that the grass clippings build up in the hooks that hold the bag in place. This doesn't affect the performance at all, just needs to be cleaned out each time you empty the bag. Overall I am very happy with this mower and would recommend it to anyone. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower and quality!! I have done some research on several different mowers and it was between Honda and Toro. I owned a Troy Bilt before and Honda mower before. So, I'm fully aware of the quality. Also, I read a lot of the comments and negatives ones too. I believe some people either good a bad mower off the assembly line or they didn't investigate and read the directions. I'm satisfied with Roto Blade stop and it works great. I saw the advantages of the feature because I have to stop a lot with my yard, with sticks and stuff. If you can deal without that feature then honda mower below this one is the one to go with it has the most amount of reviews. My experience is great! This is a real review, I own it and bought the mower. April 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wheels fall off Bought this mower for the spin blade and the brand name. Runs OK but about a month after purchasing, the wheels started falling off. Front left falls off every time I use it regardless of me tightening it. Back tire fell off once and has been OK since. Had to apply thread lock to make them stay on....have never had anything like this happen, especially to a Honda. The mower I bought right before getting this one was a Craftsman and ran one time before blowing up. Guess I don't have much luck with lawn equipment anymore:) July 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good mower! Starts just every Honda I've own before! It's I one pull dream. It has plenty of power to mow tall grass. The blade stop is must if you have younger kid with toys. It allows you to stop and pick up things as you go with out shutting off the mower. It's also nice being able to use the self-propelled feature without the blade spinning. The one flaw that I can agree with some of the other reviewer's. The height adjustment tabs are too weak and will pop out if you're mowing on rough terrain . This can be quite annoying . All in all it's a good mower and seems like it will last for a long time . June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Choice in a Lawn Mower I ordered this lawn mower because my previous one broke. I ordered via the internet since it was not available at my local store. I ordered it on a Tuesday and it was ready for pickup on Friday. Great service. The mower is awesome and does a fine job of mulching the grass. Highly recommend. July 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Mower Of all the mowers that I've used, in past years, this HONDA, MODEL HRT216VYA is by far the best. I am an Invalid due to having a stroke during heart by-pass surgery that has affected my right leg. I am also a survivor from pancreatic cancer and this HONDA has made my day This HONDA LAWNMOWER was: A). Easy to assemble B) 3asy to operate C) Easy to control D). Finished the front yard in half the time as with my past mowers E). I was able to mow my front lawn in half the time that it took me in the past. Thank you. June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Great mower, easy set up from box to my first mowing (I only needed help lifting it from box). So far I'm please with the ease of using and the way my yard looks when done. This mower is lighter than my previous one ( a good thing for me) except my backyard is plagued with tree roots and I'm finding I need to adjust for them so the mower doesn't bounce too much. That being said I am happy with my Honda mower and would definitely recommend it. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for the old I purchased this thinking because it was a Honda I was getting the best. Well I could not walk fast enough "it did wheelies". I ended up getting the toro with the Honda engine. If you are older and not wanting to run mowing the lawn. To bad I can't give zero stars. July 5, 2016
