Honda NM4 Vultus is an anime-inspired dream bike

With just one view of the Honda NM4 Vultus, anime images race through the mind faster than the sport bike would race through the streets. The bike looks like it launched from the pages of a manga trade.

It did. Honda said as much.

The motor company called the NM4 “a ground-breaking machine inspired by futuristic machines seen in the anime and manga television and film styles, known collectively as ‘Japanimation.'” Japanimation is not a block on Cartoon Network. I checked.

The Honda Japanimation machine features an ergonomic riding position and comes fitted with a rider backrest which can be flipped into a pillion seat. These features alone prove the new NM4 Vultus from Honda was designed with long distances in mind.

More specs from the Top Speed gang:

The new motorcycle is propelled by a 745cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 8-valve, SOHC parallel 2-cylinder engine which generates a maximum power of 40.3kW at 6,250rpm and 68Nm of torque at 4,750rpm. The engine’s power is kept in leash by a standard Dual Clutch Transmission system.

They’ve also got an extensive review of the 2014 Honda NM4 Vultus.


Still no mention of the actual price of the Honda ride but expect Bruce Wayne prices from the bike with the Batman look. Is there an anime Batman?
