Gorm’s Dominator Is A Purist Adventure Moto More Than Five Years In The Making

Most custom motorcycle builds have concrete start and endpoints, with projects that are classified as complete and finished with no future plans for further modifications. This, however, isn’t the case for Gorm Taube’s ongoing Honda NX650 build, first going under the grinder in 2015, before seeing a slew of additional alterations bestowed upon the Dommie over the next half-decade.

Intended to be an adventure bike in its ‘purest form,” the latest iteration of Gorm’s Honda—dubbed the “Chappie” version due to its Denali D4 headlight arrangement—sports an extended-range 23L Acerbis tank and handguards, Renthal bars, upgraded suspension, TrailTech instrumentation, and a guarded Yoshimura RS-2 is paired with a K&N filter and a custom ECU tune. A blacked-out livery with bespoke “GORM” decals also help to visually transform the dual-exhaust port single. Now riding on a set of Excel rims shod in TKC80 tires—with a dirt-ready 19” front and 17” rear setup—the Japanese dual-sport was recently featured in an ad campaign for noted adventure brand, Kriega. Collectively, the changes make for an incredibly lightweight and rugged adventure machine, capable of handling just about anything short of a full-blown rally raid.
