Honda came out with a new bike recently. It's called the NM4 Vultus. It runs on a 745cc twin-cylinder engine, and its weight to power ratio should come out to about 225 bhp per tonne, and that's good.

The design of the bike was inspired by anime and manga, which I think is obvious by looking at the bike.





I think this bike is going to cost a lot more than the F6C, but its kinda fun to compare the two.

I take it that this is not geared towards the American market though. It still just doesn't seem like it is going to be a big money maker for them. The design looks like more of a concept than a production bike. This design just seems too extreme to me to have much appeal to people.

Maybe it looks better in person or something. Who knows?

Looks like the Vultus will also be offered in white. I actually think that it looks better in white. What do you guys think? Does the color make it any more palatable to you?

If I was him i'd try to get a road legal version made of the bat bike which is truely badass

Did you ever think about how it was probably pretty dangerous to wear that long cape while riding a motorcycle? I'm surprised that didn't end up killing Batman accidentally.

Surely bruce Wayne would want to spend more money on a bike than the Vultus costs though. This is Batman for beginners.

i'd like to see batman doing a top speed run, might end up seeing him fly off the bike and catch some good air time
