Futuristic new Honda ‘inspired by Japanimation’

Honda has launched a futuristic-looking machine similar to two-wheelers seen in the anime and manga television and film styles, known collectively as “Japanimation”.
The NM4 Vultus has been created by a young design team and, according to Honda, brings “radical style to the streets, with function from the future for a new breed of rider”. The manufacturer adds: “The NM4 represents a machine capable of crossing traditional two-wheeled lines and reaching out to a wider audience.”

Vultus is Latin for appearance, expression – or face, and Honda boasts that the Vultus, with its LED lights, future-shock style and stealth bomber silhouette presents a look that will not have been seen in any cityscape this side of an anime movie.

The bike has a 745cc twin-cylinder engine which is said to deliver strong low and mid-range power and torque for smooth acceleration coupled with excellent fuel economy. It’s also equipped as standard with Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), giving the rider options between automatic twist-and-go D and S mode – plus trigger-operated computer game-style manual MT mode.
There is no information yet as to when it will be delivered to dealers.
