Honda Hawk GT NT650 Cafe Racer, Simple Appearance But Still Enchanting

The Honda Hawk GT 650 or known as the NT650 or RC31 is a naked bike with a V-twin engine and a single-sided swing arm a la Ducati.

In addition to the Ducati style, the Hawk GT NT650 is also quite attractive and ideal for a cool custom project.

For example , the Honda Hawk GT NT650 cafe racer style produced by Bil Harmer who originally worked as a cybersecurity professional.

The appearance is made simple but charming

For the change process, Bil started by stripping all parts of the 1989 motorcycle, leaving the frame, swing arm, and engine.

Then the legs are upgraded to a maximum with the use of an upside down front fork for the 2007 Honda CBR600RR with the Cognito Moto top triangle which gives a sturdy impression.

Then the two wheels rely on the original default but for braking, they are upgraded to Brembo products.

Done with the legs, the work continued by giving some minor changes to his 647 cc v-twin engine.

Bil installed a filter pod for the carburetor, a new electrical system from Motogadget, and a new exhaust system with short mufflers.
