This Aggressive Honda Dominator Was Custom-Built For Humanitarian Causes

Produced from 1987 through 2003, Honda’s NX650 has become a go-to donor model for custom motorcycle builders. With its 44hp, air-cooled, 644cc, SOHC, single, on/off-road-friendly 21” front and 17” rear wheels, and sub-400lb wet weight, the urban trailie lends itself particularly well to customization. One of the latest outfits to tackle the Honda “Dommie” is Moto Taccuino — a Sardinia-based shop that uses the proceeds from its projects to fund various charities and other humanitarian causes.

Once rid of its unapologetically-‘90s plastics, the adventure bike was given a bulbous tank plucked from a 1960’s Moto Guzzi Lodola and paired with a new subframe and scrambler-style saddle. Dubbed “Alabama,” the dual-exhaust-port single now ejects spent fumes from a pair of single pipes that sport a drilled heat shield that matches the build’s bespoke bash-guard. Bolstering the Honda’s performance are Brembo calipers pinching petal rotors, up-specced spoked rims with solid ergal FaBa hubs, and custom-tuned vintage Ohlins suspension fore and aft. Other minor details include one-off triples, a grilled LED headlight, custom paint with retro Honda wing logos, a bespoke leather satchel from Moor Design, and knobby Continental tires. Since the build’s completion, it’s been ridden all over the world, helping the Taccuino crew to raise funds for their philanthropic endeavors. For more info be sure to check out the shop’s website.
