Honda Unveils Futuristic NM4 Concept For Scarlett Johansson’s New Film

Honda will debut a futuristic motorcycle concept for Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming film Ghost In The Shell this weekend.

In the film, Johansson will play the role of Major, who is miraculously saved from a severe crash and then cyber-enhanced to become the perfect solider fighting against criminals.

Throughout, a very special Honda motorcycle concept will star in various scenes. Based around the intriguing NM4 that was introduced in early 2014, the bike should be right at home when being ridden by Johansson.

As images of the bike show, its front end and front fairings are very similar to the road-going NM4 but the mid-section and tail end of the bike are totally bespoke. It includes a very sharp and seemingly very uncomfortable seat, a single-sided swingarm and fully-covered carbon fiber wheels with appropriately fat tires.

The film will be released globally on March 31st and the new Honda NM4 concept will debut at the Osaka Motorcycle Show this weekend.

    OH NO!!!!!!
    I DIDN’T KNOW THEY ARE GONNA DESTROY ANOTHER CLASSIC WITH A REMAKE
    THEY ARE GIVING THE PART OF MAJOR TO THIS CRACKWHORE???

    that’s the single worst decision you could make!!!!!

    • Jay

      you’re correct they do destroy a lot of classics with remakes.

      • TheHake

        Basically all of them. I can think of only 2 remakes that were ok, and that was Gone in 60 secs (With Cage) and Vanishing Point (with Viggo). The WORST remake OF ALL TIME must be Point Break.

        • Shelby GT500

          Ben Hur and Magnificent Seven are also one of the worst remakes…

          • TheHake

            Haven’t seen them and I’m not going to bother.

          • Tumbi Mtika

            Ben-Hur sucked ass!

          • Tumbi Mtika

            And I thought Mag 7 was received well.

          • Shelby GT500

            Original Mag 7 is itself a remake of Akiro Kurosava’s Seven Samurai… So the new Mag 7 is a remake of a remake))

          • Tumbi Mtika

            Wow.

        • TotallyDisqusted

          The Point Break remake was terrible, but it did have some stunning visuals.

          • TheHake

            I didn’t even notice it because they raped what was one of the best movie character of all time: Bodhi.

  • Mill0048

    Yes, Major should be asian, yes it’s a remake, yes it’s an manga/anime adaptation. All these things point to a crap-tastic movie. But I’m drawn in by the visuals on the trailer and I can’t wait to see it!

  • i,m glad they make the movie after the great Ghost In The Shell ,biut the bike is nothing like the one in manga series !!

  • Marvin Manhertz

    No, don’t make the NM4 a sport bike concept, go full Akira. Wider wheels with covers that incorporate Buell like brake caliper. I’m not a biker but if I do decide to get a motorcycle it will be an NM4.
