  • 2015-2016 Honda NM4

The Honda NM4 is a touring motorcycle with “futuristic” dimensions. The machine is powered by a 670cc parallel-twin, a sophomoric powerplant tuned for relaxed riding and not hard-core hammering. Honda’s six-speed dual-clutch gearbox allows fully automatic or electronic “manumatic” shifting via handlebar-mounted paddles. The Honda NM4 is as radical as radical gets in street bike styling and absolutely an extremely bold design overlaying proven engineering.

About the 2015-2016 Honda NM4

As sporty looking as the NM4 is, the cruise-tastic rider triangle puts the rider deep into windsock territory with an upright back and feet well forward. The liquid-cooled, parallel-twin actually runs with a 73 mm bore and 80 mm stroke that leaves it a smidgen under-square. Compression is reasonable at 10.7:1, and a SOHC times the eight-valve head.

The bones set the tone with a long and low build that leaves us with a 64.7-inch wheelbase and 25.6-inch seat height. The steering head layout gives us 33 degrees of rake and 4.3 inches of trail for a ride that trends more toward the stable.

Suspension components are something of a yawn with standard, fixed-parameter forks up front and a Pro-Link mono-shock in the back with 3.9 inches of travel all around.  This is definitely sufficient for street work, it ain’t a dual-sport after all, but the lack of tune-ability in the suspension cuts into the NM4’s versatility and comfort on long trips.

The NM4 rolled for a base MSRP of $10,999 in 2016 but comes back in 2018 for $11,299. You can get it in any color you want as long as you fancy Matte Black Metallic. The NM4 comes with Honda’s one-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.
