Honda has released the details of the new NM4 Vultus, an all new bike inspired by futuristic machines seen in the anime and manga television and film styles, known collectively as “Japanimation”.
Created by a young design team who remained true to their original concept at every stage through to production, the NM4 Vultus brings radical style to the streets, with function from the future for a new breed of rider. The NM4 represents a machine capable of crossing traditional two-wheeled lines and reaching out to a wider audience.
Powering this futuristic model is a 745cc twin-cylinder engine that is canted forward, creating space and a low centre of gravity. The engine boasts of low friction technology. Delivering 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. Intuitive and easy to use, it adds to the futuristic appeal of the NM4 Vultus and is the perfect complement to the engine’s gutsy, usable performance.
