Honda has officially revealed the XL750 Transalp at EICMA in Milan, Italy.

TOKYO, Nov 8, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Having already announced the return of the celebrated Hornet name to its line-up for 23 year model, today at EICMA in Milan, Honda unveiled its full European motorcycle range for the upcoming season.

Highlights include the return of another Honda legend, a totally new urban naked machine, and the unveiling of Honda's first European EV two wheeler.

Headlining the unveiling is the return to the Honda line-up of the evocative Transalp name in the shape of the XL750 Transalp.

Inheriting the spirit of its illustrious predecessor, the XL750 Transalp is designed to be at home anywhere - from the rush hour commute to an extended touring trip, from a dusty trail to an Alpine pass.

This all-round ability is derived from Honda's brand new 755cc parallel twin engine that combines a substantial top end punch with mountains of torque in the low to mid rpm range plus engaging character and sound from its 270 degrees crank and new exhaust. Peak power of 67.5kW arrives at 9,500rpm, peak 75Nm torque at 7,250rpm.

Electronic aids running via Throttle By Wire allow the rider to choose between 5 riding modes to select their preferred combination of Engine Power, Engine Braking and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) with integrated Wheelie Control.

The new engine is housed in a lightweight steel diamond frame to offer light, nimble, confidence-inspiring handling in any situation. For supple on-road performance and off-road bump absorption the Transalp is equipped with Showa 43mm SFF-CATM USD forks and rear shock operating through Pro-Link. A 21in front wheel paired to a 18in rear delivers versatility both on or off-road.

The Transalp's rich specification list is headlined by a 5-inch TFT colour display which vividly supplies all the crucial information and allows management of all systems. Connectivity is available for both Android and iOS devices via the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system. All lighting is LED; the indicators auto-cancel and also include Emergency Stop Signal technology to warn other road users of sudden braking.

Styling for the Transalp has been led by Honda's Rome R&D centre, under the guiding principle of 'Friendly Toughness'. The long-legged stance makes a strong statement of adventurous intent, while the fairing and screen work together to deliver wind protection without bulk. The overall look is sleek, simple and clean.

The Transalp will be available in three striking colours: Matt Iridium Gray Metallic, Matt Ballistic Black Metallic and a modern interpretation of the classic Ross White Tricolour.
