Honda Press Release

TOKYO, Japan, March 21, 2014 – Honda held its press conference at the 30th Osaka Motorcycle Show 2014 today and unveiled the world premiere of two types of its new production model “NM4″ as an exhibition model (planned for production).

The NM4 was developed under the keywords of “the neo-futuristic” and “cool,” pursuing new, unique styling.

This NM4 was designed to realize two points; the design concept “the Front Massive Styling” and “the cockpit position” focusing on the sense  of unity with the rider, that the rider can smoothly get into the vehicle. The low-setup cockpit position and adjustable backrest provide an enjoyable new riding feel. The instrument panel was designed to provide clear readability and the fun riding, as if the rider was experiencing part of a movie scene.

LED lamps are used on the headlight of the powerful-looking front fairing, the tail lamp and the turn signals. In addition, the utility boxes are set up on the right and left sides of the front fairing for small articles.

Two NM4 types were unveiled at the motorcycle show; the simply-configured “NM4-01″ which emphasizes its wide, dynamic rear tire and attractive low silhouette, and the “NM4-02″ which emanates a unique presence and features a prominent rear design (containing utility boxes on each side of the rear body).

    Ugliest thing I have ever seen. If I wanted a poor handling recliner I already have one in front of my TV.

    What I gave seen out of Honda lately makes me think they want out of the motorcycle business.

    It’s inviting – I would like to test ride it. Why not – “get in” the bike.
