Honda's New 'Batcycle'

The new NM4 Vultus motorbike is inspired by comic books

There's also a 1 litre storage space with an integrated 12-volt adaptor, for charging up smart devices – a sure pull for the 'young, social media-engaged urbanite'  that Honda says is the model's target demographic.

There's no release date yet, so for now we'll just have to dream about owning our own Batbike.
