The world is buzzing on a new Honda Transalp. And if you have been paying attention to the buzz. Then you would know that the bike’s development appears to be nearly over.
The only question we are left with is whether this smaller Africa Twin will make it to the Honda showrooms in some form or other.
Honda seems to be taking baby steps in terms of its adventure bikes. If reports are believed, Honda might show off an adventure bike at the upcoming EICMA show in 2021. The Transalp will battle out with Yamaha Tenere 700 and BMW F850GS.
Some bikes have an appeal that no amount of tech and performance can justify. They speak for themselves.
There is a certain kind of radiance and attractiveness about these machines that you cannot find with others.
And this is the kind of appeal that Africa Twin has managed to attract over the years. Honda knows it too well. This is why the company has now used the smaller off-roader and given it a fresh new avatar – Honda Transalp.
While the bigger version of the Africa Twin has received rave reviews from both the critics and buyers. The new baby version could grab a significant share of the motorcycle market with its qualities.
The bike will arrive with great expectations to deliver excellent performance and have some decent power to back it up.
If Transalp debuts in the coming November, we expect the bike to arrive in India via CKD mode and in the first half of 2022.
