Bike inspired by Japanimation

Bike inspired by Japanimation
HONDA has revealed the new NM4 Vultus, a ground-breaking superbike inspired by futuristic machines seen in the Anime and Manga television and film styles, known collectively as Japanimation.

Created by a young design team, 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.

Vultus is Latin for appearance, expression or face. The NM4 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. Underneath the brooding menace is a rock-solid chassis and engine. Packed with low-friction technology, its 745cc twin-cylinder engine is canted forward, creating space and a low centre of gravity. It is also equipped as standard with Dual Clutch Transmission, giving the rider options between automatic twist-and-go D and S mode — plus trigger-operated computer game-style manual MT mode. This adds to the futuristic appeal of the NM4 Vultus and is the perfect complement to the engine’s gutsy, usable performance.
