You know what's brilliant about living in 2014? All the futuristic gadgetry and general cool shit from our favourite films are now becoming a reality.

Last week, Honda unveiled their NM4 Vultus motorcycle. It has a 745cc parallel-twin-powered engine, future-ready shock absorbers (obviously we have no idea what this really means) and it looks like it's rolled out of Bruce Wayne's garage.

It's even got storage space in the front bodywork to keep spare batarangs in.

Inspired by 'Japanimation', the collective name for Japan's famous anime and manga television and film styles, it's pretty much the most badass thing we've ever seen on two wheels.

It's also conclusive proof that if you want to make something absolutely awesome, you should take note from pop culture. Now where the hell are our hoverboards?
