  Ducati's 2017 Motorcycles Are Gorgeous and We Can't Wait To Ride Them Ducati's 2017 lineup are works of art, as well as ferocious. Check 'em out.We’ve been test-driving Ducatis since 2002 and they don’t make a motorcycle that isn’t an ode to craft, speed and style; if you didn’t ride yours you would probably hang it on your wall. Here are some of their upcoming bikes for 2017.

Honda will put Scarlett Johansson 's character, The Major, on a futuristic version of the company's NM4 Vultus concept from 2014 in the upcoming Ghost in the Shell movie. That motorcycle went into production, without the Vultus name, as a sort of scooter- motorcycle hybrid thing.

A feet-forward, scooter-motorcycle thing in a futuristic sci-fi movie? You probably can't help but think of Shotaro Kaneda's iconic (and technically, recumbent) red motorcycle in Akira – and perhaps about the live action Akira remake rumors that have been swirling for ages. ScarJo's bike isn't nearly as intense, and it likely won't become the sort of anime keystone that Kaneda's bike is, but you can go buy a NM4.

The Kia Stinger GT Gets to 60 in 4.9 Seconds

  The Kia Stinger GT Gets to 60 in 4.9 Seconds That's 0.2 seconds quicker than what the current BMW 440i Gran Coupe, for considerably less money.Going back to the range-topping GT version, if you think 4.9 seconds is not that impressive, consider that a Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan and an Audi S5 Sportback are only 0.2 seconds quicker off the line, which is marginal on the road, and becomes even less of a factor when you look at the price difference between these cars. The Stinger GT is expected to cost "under $50,000", and it's no secret that Kia wanted to create a budget BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

A feet-forward, scooter- motorcycle thing in a futuristic sci-fi movie? In the original Japanese versions of the franchise, both manga and film, the protagonist is Major Motoko Kusanagi. With Johansson 's casting, that name has been pared back to simply, "The Major".

Scarlett Johansson will ride a futuristic Honda motorcycle in Ghost in the Shell . New Car Buying Guides. Biggest automotive sales disappointments.

As cool as the NM4 Vultus is – the sketch above shows a healthy amount of carbon fiber, illuminated elements, and graphics that'll look great on screen – the star of the film will be Ms. Johansson. And to that point, the biggest talking point so far has been The Major's ethnicity. In the original Japanese versions of the franchise, both manga and film, the protagonist is Major Motoko Kusanagi. With Johansson's casting, that name has been pared back to simply, "The Major". Whatever her name or background, The Major kicks some serious ass in the trailer below. Give it a watch:

The bike will be revealed tomorrow at the Osaka Motorcycle Show in Japan.
