2018 Honda NM4 Buyer’s Guide | Specs & Price

2018 Honda NM4

It may look like a scooter to you, but Honda places the 2018 Honda NM4 in its cruiser category—and with good reason.

Instead of a fully automatic belt CVT, which is standard on scooters, the NM4 has a six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. That means you can operate it in fully automatic mode, or in the manual-shift/auto-clutch mode.

Also, the 670cc twin, which we also see in the CTX700 and NC700, is a larger motor than we expect in a scooter. The recumbent seating is unusual, but more cruiser-like than scooter-style.

Put it all together and you have a peppy motorcycle that is easy to ride, even for novices. The seat height is low and all you have to do is twist the throttle.

Being a Honda, the 2018 Honda NM4 handles better than it looks like it would. For all the plastic on the NM4, unfortunately, storage is limited.

Also, if you do not like interacting with strangers, the Honda NM4 is not the motorcycle for you. It’s an attention-grabbing machine and wherever you go, people will come up and ask lots of questions.
