Scarlett Johansson rides Honda NM4 Vultus

Well, someone's got to. 

Scarlett Johansson rides Honda NM4 Vultus

YOU may not have seen many on the road but you will soon be able to see one in a film.

Honda's weird, futuristic, manga-style NM4 Vultus is the basis for a bike ridden by a weird, futuristic, manga-style cyborg played by Scarlett Johansson in the forthcoming film Ghost in the Shell. Obviously. 

Honda released the above rendering this morning.

The machine itself appears briefly in the trailer for the film, although it’s very much upstaged by Ms Johansson as a clothesless robot.

Ghost in the Shell is due for release on March 31, while the bike is to be properly revealed at Japan's Osaka Motorcycle Show tomorrow.
