“Our intention was to make something that makes every moment feel cinematic,” says project leader Keita Mikura says. “And we want riding it to be an event.” The bike was just unveiled at the Osaka Motorcycle Show.

Underneath the jet fighter-like bodywork is a drivetrain pulled straight from Honda’s parts bin. Its 745cc twin-cylinder engine is from the the NC750X, as is the dual-clutch transmission. Riders can choose between fully automatic shifting, or manual gear selection using triggers mounted on the grips.

"Make every moment feel cinematic" is every marketing person's dream.

The design, matt plastic, very angular and, aerodynamic. Most likely both inspired by US furtive planes.

Ah! I see it now. Thank you!
