'Calipso’ is one heck of a Honda Dominator

What happens if you unleash a group of Italian custom bike builders on an unsophisticated Honda NX650 Dominator? Now you can own ‘Calipso’, built by South Garage Motorcycles from Milan…

Custom trailblazer

One of the very first projects to emerge from the Milan-based custom shop in 2013, ‘Calipso’ started life as a dual-sport 1999 Honda Dominator – a model well known for its purposeful, rugged nature. Examining the photographs more closely, we can see that this single-cylinder machine features a flat track-style seat, tail and alloy fuel tank, upgraded USD front forks with twin disc brakes and an entirely reworked set of controls and electronics. Taking into account the custom exhaust and leather-trimmed saddle, this must surely be the most highly detailed NX650 in existence. Currently for sale in the Classic Driver Market, the listing states that the machine is ‘completely restored' and 'like new’.
