Honda XL750 Transalp: Mechanical Details

Honda XL750 Transalp

The new Honda XL750 Transalp is powered by a 755cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree crankshaft, which produces 90bhp of peak power at 9,500rpm and 75Nm of maximum torque at 7,250rpm and is connected to a 6-speed gearbox. The CRF450R and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade are two high-end versions that use the same Ni-SiC (Nickel-Silicon Carbide) coating on their cylinders for increased engine efficiency. It also comes with several technological aids, such as five riding modes (Sport, Standard, Rain, Gravel, and User), along with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) with ABS and an assist slipper clutch.

Coming to hardware, the new tourer has Showa 43mm SFF-CA upside-down (USD) front forks and a Pro-Link rear shock installed for comfortable on-road riding and off-road impact absorption. The braking system consists of two 310mm wave discs with hydraulic 2-piston callipers at the front and a 256mm single disc with a 1-pot calliper at the back, with dual-channel ABS at both ends as standard.

Honda XL750 Transalp: Features

The newest adventure-touring bike from Honda comes equipped with a 5.0-inch TFT screen, which displays a speedometer, tachometer, gear-position indicator, fuel gauge and consumption information, riding modes, engine data, and more. According to the bikemaker, the panel is quite easy to use. The rider can personalise this display to their liking, and they can operate it with either the switchgear on the left handlebar or the screen itself. When connected to the smartphone, the rider can use voice commands for calls, messages, music, and navigation, thanks to the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCs) built into this ADV. It also has an emergency stop signal feature, which flashes warning lamps to warn approaching vehicles about rapid braking, and an automated turn signal cancelling functionality.

The adventure tourer exudes genuine off-roading flair with its aggressive appearance. While it does have similarities to the very first Transalp, which debuted in the 1980s, it also has its own allure and is expected to be well-received by bike enthusiasts. The Transalp 750 has a tiny headlamp and an integrated windscreen to protect the rider on rough terrains. According to the maker, the bike's gold-coloured spoke wheels, measuring 21 inches at the front and 18 inches at the back, are designed to offer a smooth ride and are shod with block pattern tyres.
