Honda NX4 Custom Tracker

You might not have heard of the Honda NX4 Falcon. In 1999, this 400cc dual-sport replaced the NX350 Sahara in a number of markets, including Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Portugal, and Chile.  The 30-ish horsepower motor is derived from the Honda XR400 — a great bike which has never been made road-legal from the factory. Riders rave about the NX4 as a strong little performer, as this ADV Rider thread attests. These smaller displacement bikes rarely enjoy the attention of their larger siblings, such as the NX650 and even the Africa Twin, but they are battle-proven in some of the toughest commuting conditions on the planet.

Enter Hernan Smith of Home Made Motorcycles — a new garage in Argentina. The country has quickly become a hotbed of custom trackers and scramblers, with Herencia Custom Garage being the most visible builder. But there are loads of smaller garages turning out knobby-tired rippers that can jump the curbs of Buenos Aires or burn the dirt roads of Mendoza’s wine country.

Hernan and crew wanted to built a street tracker with an enduro touch, and the NX4 proved the perfect platform.  The 400cc motor punches above its weight class, and the middleweight size is perfect for carving through city streets. We love the red and blue accents, which nod toward the retro glory of the 80s and 90s Honda liveries. All in all, a sweet first build from a new garage. Below, we get more details on the build straight from the builder.

Honda NX4 Custom:  In the Builder’s Words

Honda NX4 Custom Tracker

This is the first project of Home Made Motorcycles garage in Argentina. For this project we selected an on-off motorcycle like the Honda NX4. It was a very good base to build a Street Tracker with an enduro touch.

The main changes that this bike underwent were the frame modification to create the style, the exhaust system and the oil container were totally created with INOX steel.

The exhaust system and the air filter increased the power that give to the rider an incredible sensation on the highway and off road.

All the aspects of this machine were solved thinking in a motorcycle to be enjoyed and durable. The first project shows where we are going, and the next one will confirm who we are.
