Honda has announced a new motorcycle – the limited edition NM4. It combines Japanese manga styling with existing Honda underpinnings.
“The NM4 Vultus exists because of a passion from deep within our company. We wanted to create something special, not just in the two-wheeled world, but truly unique in the whole world – a machine that engages a human soul like no other ” , says Mr Keita Mikura, NM4 Vultus Project Leader, Honda Motor Company.
Honda’s 2015 NM4 is powered by the NC700X’s 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine.
The bike also features a digital LCD dash with a gear position indicator, full LED lighting, plus a wide 200mm rear tire and an instrument display that can be illuminated in 25 different colors and the NM4’s mega comfortable seat is a super-low (25.6 inches). The rear pillion seat flips upright when not in use, locking to provide the rider with a secure backrest and almost fighter pilot riding position. Its angle can be adjusted through 3 positions and it slides back/forward 25mm through four settings, to fine-tune cockpit comfort.
There are also three modes of operation:
- MT mode gives full manual control, allowing the rider to shift with the handlebar trigger control buttons.
- Automatic D mode is ideal for city and highway riding, and achieves optimum fuel efficiency.
- Automatic S mode is sportier and the ECU lets the engine rev a little higher before shifting up, giving greater performance.
Honda has announced that it will begin selling a production version called the NM4, priced at $10,999. Only one paint option will be available – matt black.
