My recent post on the Honda Transalp raised some interest from my readers, to whom I am always grateful, so I thought, I need to add some more information on this model.
The Transalp is a dual-sport motorcycle by Honda. Different models have been in production from 1987 to present. It is a polyvalent motorbike, with capabilities for both long road trips and limited off-road. It features a liquid-cooled, six-valve, four-stroke 52 degrees V-twin engine, and is closely related to the Africa Twin and Honda Bros 400
Our good friends Dave & Linda over at
travels with my motor bike have just completed a round trip from Turkey to Scotland on their Honda Translap and have posted an excellent account of their trip on their blog Dave & Linda . It is a most enjoyable read and I encourage you all to have a look at this blog as it will give you an idea of what riding in Europe can be all about....
Honda Transalp is popular especially in Europe and Japan. It has been used in several around the world adventures, such as The Tokyo to London Trip that was made from July to December 1994 by Australian bikers Walter Colebatch and James Mudie.
