Sure, the headline figures grab attention. 67.5kW power and 75Nm torque are strong numbers. But it’s the way the all-new, 755cc 8V parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers you’ll really notice. Honda’s Air vortex intake technology amplifies and smooths low- and mid-range response, while the cylinders use high-specification Ni-SiC plating to reduce friction – and increase power – at high rpm. So, on a dirt track, around town or out on the open road, two-up and fully loaded, this engine is tuned for the versatile performance you need.
Authentic Design Built Tough
Honda designed the Transalp to be the perfect partner for your adventures – wherever they lead. It has a purposeful look and feel, with zero excess and built tough. So, whether dealing with the urban sprawl, covering big highway distance or navigating endless trails the slim proportions of the mid-section combine with sleek fairing aerodynamics to give freedom with wind protection. And, of course, the beautiful Tricolour paint option pays homage to the original XL600V and marks the return of an icon.
City Block To Mountain Pass
This bike is built to go the distance, so genuine comfort – for two – matters. An 850mm seat height and 208kg kerb weight make the Transalp easy to manage from walking pace upwards; the riding position is relaxed yet sits you upright, offering great visibility and natural comfort. Compact and highly functional, the fairing and screen feature aerodynamics carefully sculpted to increase stability and reduce wind noise and buffeting at speed.
The Choice Is Yours
Four default riding modes – Gravel, Sport, Standard and Rain – make it easy for most riding conditions and alter the level of engine power and braking, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), Wheelie Control and level of ABS intervention. User mode allows your custom preference of each parameter, including rear ABS switch off for off-road riding, and management is via 5-inch TFT screen. Honda Smartphone Voice Control system keeps you connected while you ride and full LED lighting features Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology to alert road users behind of sudden braking.
