Written by Kanad Kalasur

According to a media report, Honda is planning to bring the Transalp 750 to India. The adventure bike will head against the likes of the BMW F859GS and the Triumph Tiger 900.

Pricing of the Honda Transalp 750 in India

It is estimated that Honda might launch this bike for around INR 10.50-11.50 lakh, ex-showroom. In comparison, the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport retails for INR. 11.95 lakh while the BMW F 850 GS costs INR. 12.95 lakh. While the Honda Transalp would be priced closer to the higher-up rivals, in terms of power output, the Japanese bike is close in numbers and it weighs lighter than the aforementioned bikes.

Honda Transalp XL750 : More Details

Honda showcased the XL750 Transalp first at the EICMA 2022. The Transalp name was revived by the bike maker since almost a decade. Earlier this year, Honda has also filed a design patent for the motorcycle for the Indian market.

After the popularity of the Africa Twin in India, the next logical step is to introduce a smaller Adventure bike that would sit below the flagship Africa Twin. Thus comes in the Transalp.

The XL750 Transalp equips the same engine as the new CB750 Hornet. This is a liquid-cooled, 755cc, parallel-twin unit. The performance figure reads as 92 HP at 9,500rpm and 75 Nm at 7,250rpm mated to a 6-speed gearbox. As we have seen with most parallel-twin engines these days. This engine too has a 270-degree firing order. This gives it the ‘pulse’ that’s a hallmark of a V-Twin engine.

The motorcycle gets a new steel diamond frame supported by a 43mm Showa USD fork and monoshock. Both of these setups feature only preload adjustability. With 210mm of ground clearance, the motorcycle wears 21/18-inch tubed wire-spoke wheels and block-pattern tyres. Weighing 208 kg the weight is quite a bit less than its immediate rivals such as the Tiger 900 Rally (196 kg dry) and the BMW F 850 GS (233 kg kerb).
