Produced between 1988 and 1992, Honda BROS400 was viewed as a heavy, underpowered commuter bike for fledgling enthusiasts. It was the little sister of the NT650, probably a little better known in Europe. But the cheap grey bike was surprisingly nice to ride, well balanced, well steering and with a flexible engine, torquey and characterful, especially given its 33bhp output. Bangkok customiser K-Speed turned it into a full aluminium jacketed future machine. That’s why this project was called Future Storm.
A shortened custom tail section makes Future Storm a single-seater, exposing the beefy rear tire, shock/spring assembly and single-sided swingarm. Unique fabricated shrouds over the front forks lend the bike a futuristic Tron aesthetic. This silver bodywork contrasts to the blacked-out frame, swingarm and engine, which would usually gleam in polished aluminum. Naturally, Motogadget supplies the minimialist lights and instruments.
The best park of Future Storm’s mods is that they are equally applicable its bigger sister NT650, so your version of this rad ride can be more muscular.
Some key features of Future Storm:
– frame, wheels, pendulum: original, repainted
– Subframe: K-Speed
– Body kit: K-Speed, a converted fuel tank, a new tail
