Honda NM4 Vultus motorbike to appear in “Ghost in the Shell”
Honda has supported the production of the feature film “Ghost in the Shell”, produced by Dreamworks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, and provided its highly-acclaimed large motorcycle model “NM4 Vultus”, whose futuristic style has been very popular, as the base model for the hero bike in the film.
Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese manga, “Ghost in the Shell” is set in the near future and stars Scarlett Johansson as Major, the first of her kind, a human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. Beat Takeshi plays her boss, Aramaki. The film is directed by Rupert Sanders.
The NM4 Vultus was developed under the keywords of “Neo-futuristic” and “Cool”, and was launched in April 2014. The ideal fit between the concept and styling of the NM4 Vultus and the worldview of the film led to the provision of the vehicle for filming. The vehicle in the film was based on design sketches provided by Honda, finessed by the film production team, and subsequently placed in the film as the hero bike ridden by the lead character. The vehicle helps to make the futuristic world depicted in the film more realistic.
