Check out this Honda Monkey’s bigger brother, the Honda Gorilla with a 250cc inline-4 engine swap from Japan!
Last week we showcased a few Honda Super Cubs with crazy engine swaps; there were three different builds with 250cc inline-4 four-stroke and 250cc 2-stroke engine from both Honda and Kawasaki. So for this week, we decided to post another crazy build with yet another crazy engine swap.
In case you never heard of Honda Gorilla; both the Honda Gorilla and Honda Monkey are under Honda’s leisure models, however, the Honda Monkey’s concept is to be transported in a car, whereas the heavy-duty Honda Gorilla is made to be ridden to the location. As for the differences, unlike the Honda Monkey, the Honda Gorilla comes with a bigger tank (9L), non-foldable handlebar and thicker seat.
So, we came across this crazy Honda Gorilla build with a 250cc inline-4 engine swap from Japan some time ago and we decide to show it off to our readers this week. Given it’s an inline-4 250cc engine, it appears to be from the old Honda CBR250RR (MC22). The engine isn’t the only thing that has been swapped out in this bike! Everything from suspension, exhaust, handlebar, rims to brakes have been swapped out with either aftermarket or custom parts. The owner states in Japanese that this tiny monster puts out around 45hp! Can you imagine 45hp on a bike that weighs roughly 120 Kgs with the engine swap?!
Are your hands feeling itchy? Well, the owner put up a whole playlist to showcase what he has done to his Honda Gorilla from stock. Check it out!
The Honda Super Cub build was cool but this Honda Gorilla with the 250cc engine swap is equally nuts! We really love these unique builds with mindblowing swaps; got a bike with a cool engine swap?
