Vultus is Latin for “expression” or “face.”

The motorcycle has a 745cc twin-cylinder engine and dual-clutch transmission with a backlit dashboard display changing color depending on the drivetrain mode selected or customizable to one of 25 colors.

The Honda NM4 Vultus was designed with novice riders in mind, but its 54 horsepower and 50 pound-feet of torque should appeal to beginners, commuters, and experienced riders, said Digital Trends. It includes canted floorboards and a passenger seat that flips up for use as a backrest.

No formal announcements about production of the Vultus have been made.

The new design drew attention on Twitter.
