Honda has unveiled the new 2023 XL750 Transalp in Europe, its 750cc adventure bike, which takes its name from the original iconic 1986 bike for a new generation of riders.
With premium specifications, the XL750 Transalp arrives with a lot of embedded technology such as the Throttle By Wire, 4 riding modes, 5 levels of traction control ‘Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)’, Wheelie Control and 3 levels of Engine Brake and Power.
Furthermore, the design of this new model is based on the classic design of the original Transalp, the XL600V, with characteristic colors and graphics, and smooth, clean lines. But it also brings modernity, with an LED headlight reminiscent of the CB 500X and NC 750X, and a color TFT digital panel.
Ready for the most extreme adventures, the XL750 Transalp features spoked wheels (21″ front, 18″ rear), dual purpose tires, and Showa SFF-CA USD front fork and Showa Pro-Link rear suspension.
In addition, it has double disc brakes at the front with 2-piston calipers and an ABS brake system, for excellent stopping power and, at the same time, maintaining the lightness of the set.
In terms of engine, the XL750 Transalp is equipped with the same unit that equips the ‘naked’ Hornet 750, that is, a 750 cm³ twin cylinder with liquid cooling, and which is capable of generating up to 67.5 kW (91.7 hp) of maximum power at 9,500 rpm, and 75 Nm (7.6 kgfm) of torque at 7,250 rpm.
As you would expect on an adventurer, the seat is quite high, at 850mm, but the company says that height is low for the class and that an optional low seat is offered, for a maximum height of 820mm.
Finally, the 2023 Honda XL750 Transalp hits stores in Europe in 3 color options: Ross White Tricolor, Matte Iridium Gray Metallic and Mat Ballistic Black Metallic. There is no price information, but as it will be positioned between the NC 750X and the CRF 1100L Africa Twin, we can estimate it to be something close to US$ 11,000.
