Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd has further expanded its portfolio in India by launching the all-new XL750 Transalp at an introductory price of Rs 10,99,999 (ex-showroom) in Gurugram. The bike will be available in India in two colours – Ross White and Matte Ballistic Black.

The Honda Transalp 750 is powered by a liquid-cooled, 755cc, parallel-twin engine making 92hp at 9,500rpm and 75Nm at 7,250rpm. This is the exact same bike as the international model, unlike some other Honda big bikes which were introduced in India with tweaks.

This mill is mated to a 6-speed gearbox endowed with a slip-and-assist clutch and a bi-directional quick-shifter. Nestling this 270-degree parallel twin (also shared with the Hornet 750) is a diamond steel frame suspended by a USD fork and monoshock setup, both courtesy of Showa and both featuring preload adjustability.

On the tech front, the XL750 features a 5.0-inch TFT console that can either be operated directly from the screen or the switchgear on the left. Honda has also equipped the motorcycle with its Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCs) allowing the rider to link their smartphone to manage calls, messages, music and navigation. In addition to that, it also gets an emergency stop signal feature that communicates sudden braking to the vehicles behind by flashing hazard lamps and there’s an automatic turn signal cancelling function as well.

Speaking to reporters during the launch of the Honda XL750 Transalp, Yogesh Mathur, Director, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, said, “Inheriting the go-anywhere spirit, the XL750 Transalp is an all-round legend of adventure touring reborn in a fresh avatar. HMSI is proud to introduce this true adventure bike in India. The bookings for the Honda XL750 Transalp are now open at our exclusive BigWing Top Line dealerships and its deliveries will begin from next month onwards.”

“Spreading the joy of dreams, HMSI will continue its tradition of conducting exciting skill enhancement activities for its customers, including the new XL750 Transalp buyers, to flourish the adventure tribe,” he added.
