So here we are in 2015, the year of Back to the Future Part II, and alas, there are no hoverboards, dehydrated pizzas or dog-walking leashes, even. That said, we’re pretty sure that if the movie had featured a mind-melting motorcycle scene, there’s no way they could have come up with something sleeker, cooler or more futuristic than the bike you see here, the limited edition Honda NM4.
Even better news: As badass as it looks, the NM4’s features may be even more irresistible. Start with a 670cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine. Add automatic dual-clutch transmission, ABS and PGM-FI. Yes, PGM-FI, a.k.a. Programmed Fuel Injection, which continuously monitors numerous variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for current conditions, thereby delivering optimal performance and crisp throttle response at all times.
Oh, and then there are a bunch of clever and charming little extra touches, such as built-storage front and rear storage pockets, a comfy, low seat (just 25.6 inches off the ground) and a meter display that can light up in (fuscia lovers, rejoice!) any of 25 different colors.
And if that’s not enough for ya, there’s yet another feature we love: a handy adjustable backrest that can be folded down to make room for the criminally underrated Jennifer Parker, er, a second rider of your choice.
Dunno about you, but we’ll take that over a hoverboard any day of the week. Starts at $10,999, powersports.honda.com.
