India-bound Honda XL750 Transalp: Details explained

Honda has unveiled its new middleweight adventure tourer motorcycle, the XL750 Transalp at the 2020 EICMA in Milan, Italy. This new model should arrive in the Indian market, however, its launch details are not available yet. Meanwhile, here we explain the top details about this motorcycle.


The styling cues comprise a single-pod headlight that looks very similar to the unit on the CB500X. The sleek unit is flanked by black-coloured panels. It does, however, miss the beak-style front that is a typical styling trait on adventure-style motorcycles. Other styling elements on the motorcycle comprise semi-fairing, tall windscreen, single-piece saddle, and side-slung exhaust. The off-road persona of the XL750 Transalp is further enhanced by wire-spoke wheels on both ends.

In terms of electronic rider aids, this motorcycle comes equipped with ride-by-wire throttle, five riding modes four levels of engine power (EP), three levels of engine brake (EB), two levels of ABS, and five levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). The HSTC and rear ABS can also be switched off. Other features on the XL750 Transalp include full-LED lighting and a five-inch TFT colour display with support for Android and iOS devices via the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system. The motorcycle also comes equipped with auto-cancelling indicators and Emergency Stop Signal technology.


The motorcycle is powered by a 755cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that features a 270-degree crank. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, this motor produces 90bhp of maximum output at 9,500rpm and 75Nm of peak torque at 7,250rpm. We expect to see similar numbers on the India-bound model. Meanwhile, the European markets will get the A2 variant which has a maximum output of 47bhp.

The hardware on the motorcycle comprises a lightweight steel diamond frame. The suspension tasks are handled by Showa-sourced 43mm SFF-CATM upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock. As aforementioned, this off-road-biased motorcycle rides on wire-spoke wheels. These include 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels that can be had in two tyre options – Metzeler Karoo Street and Dunlop Mixtour. Meanwhile, the braking setup comprises twin discs at the front and a single rotor at the back.


Internationally, the XL750 Transalp will be sold in three colours – Matte Iridium Gray Metallic, Matte Ballistic Black Metallic, and the Ross White Tricolour. The details about its Indian launch and the availability of colour options are not available yet. However, we may see it arrive in our market in mid to late 2023 with an ex-showroom price tag of around Rs 13 lakh. Once launched, it will rival the likes of the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport, BMW F 850 GS, and Ducati Multistrada V2.
