Mountains are calling
An all-round legend of adventure touring is reborn. With class-leading power and torque, in a chassis that delivers light on-road handling plus off-road control. A fairing and screen built for aerodynamics and wind protection, with the optimal riding position for all-day touring comfort. The new XL750 Transalp asks only one question. How far do you want to go?
Power and Torque Tuned for Versatility
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. Our 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
We’ve 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.
Optimised Wind Protection and All-Day Comfort
If you’re spending all day getting somewhere reduced fatigue matters; the Transalp slips through high-speed airflow efficiently, for more relaxed highway cruising.
Advanced Technology for Riding Confidence No Matter the Conditions
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) monitors front and rear wheel speeds to instantly detect loss of rear traction or front lift, and adjust engine output accordingly. Each riding mode uses a specific HSTC setting, with a set amount of Wheelie Control integrated.
35kW A2 Licence Option Available
You can choose your Transalp with 35kW from new – so it’s A2 licence compatible. And, once you have your full motorcycle licence, a Honda dealer can re-write the ECU to put the full 67.5kW power in your throttle hand. How’s that for planning ahead?
Ready To Ride Rough
It’s good to be prepared. From dirt tracks to green lanes long-stroke Showa suspension absorbs bumps, while the 21/18-inch front and rear wheel combination roll smoothly over rough terrain.
Lightweight Nimble Steering Chassis For Intuitive Handling
At just 18.3kg the steel diamond-style main frame is light and integrates a sturdy rear subframe to support long-range touring loads. A forged aluminium top yoke ensures steering precision, while the aluminium swingarm operates through Pro-Link for supple control.
Colour TFT Display & Full Smartphone Connectivity Loop You In
Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCs) through the Honda RoadSync app allow you to access your android or iOS device via Bluetooth headset for navigation, calls, messages and music. The 5-inch TFT screen is also customisable with 4 distinct types of display.
