Honda XL750 Transalp (2023 onwards)

The Honda XL750 Transalp is a budget-friendly adventure bike that offers a very good value for money. It is a highly-versatile machine that can be used for both long-distance touring and off-road riding.

It comes with the same parallel twin engine you will find in the new Honda CB750 Hornet. There is plenty of low and midrange power with minimal vibrations to the frame of the bike. The riding experience is super-smooth with an extremely easy and predictable handling. The suspension and brakes work really well together, while the tyres feel safe and reliable on the road.

In terms of equipment, you will get a multi-function colour dash, rider aids, LED lights, etc. Unfortunately, there is no cruise control, which a slight disappointment. The overall finish and build quality is excellent, especially for such an affordable bike.
