I've just ordered the new Transalp and thought that there must be a forum for this bike. I'm based in Shropshire (UK) and been riding for 50 years. My current bike is a 2007 VFR800 which I've enjoyed immensely but it was time for a change to something lighter and more suited to rambling around the Welsh hills.

Delivery for the new bike is sometime in May. Can't wait.

I've had the VFR 10 years would you believe. I bought it to tour around Europe and it was ideal for that. Times change and my riding is now mostly local and I wanted something more comfortable and a lot lighter. Previous to the VFR I had two Suzuki SV's which I loved, a gen 1 and then a gen 2. The Transalp appealed to me as it's light, practical, better egonomics and far better looking than most adventure bikes and is a lot less complicated than the VFR. I've had a number of bike in my 50 years of riding but I won't list them all, but they include an Yamaha RD350YPVS, Suzuki GT750, Honda CX650, Suzuki GS550e, Suzuki GSX750esd.
I'm sure the new Transalp will be available stateside eventually. I recall when the Suzuki SV650s was first released, the faired version wasn't available in the US and frustrated riders had to import it from Canada.
