2016 Honda NM4 | Buyer's Guide & Specs
2016 Honda NM4

There’s someone inside Honda who loves to throw curve balls. The 2016 Honda NM4 is an anime-inspired motorcycle that Honda classifies as a tourer. It may look like a scooter at first glance, but it has integrated sidebags and a six-speed automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (rather than a CVT that you traditionally find in scooters) for its 670cc twin-cylinder motor.

Audacious in its appearance, the 2016 Honda NM4 has a massive fairing (with storage) and a bright LED display that allows you to switch between 25 color. The backrest folds down into a passenger seat and the low seat-height will attract new riders, even if the price is dear.

As is typical of Honda, despite its unusual appearance, the Honda NM4 is fun and easy to ride, with good handling and suspension.
