Kiddo Dos

1991 Honda NX650 Dominator.

This bike was commisioned by Luca.

We completely rebuilt the motor, adding a Keihin FCR carb from a Honda CRF450R. That was a nice improvement comparing to the Uno. A custom 2-into-1 exhaust feeds into a SuperTrapp muffler. He’s also reworked the frame to create a stubby, purposeful scrambler, with a comfortable custom gel seat for the rider. The aluminum tank is from a Yamaha XT500 and the bars and risers are from Easton, with Renthal grips and new switchgear. The tank now hides a lot of the new electrical system, including a Ballistic li-ion battery. The headlamp came from a Rieju Tango. Excel Takasago rims—19” front and 18” rear—are shod with Continental Twinduro rubber. Hyperpro supplied the rear shock, and also a set of progressive springs for the rebuilt forks. The front fender is a modified Harley and the rear fender is a one-off custom fabrication.

It clocked in at a mere 143kg, a drop of 25 kilos over a stock NX650.

Last seen in Milano, Italy.
