With new proofs in certification documents surrendered to the California Air Resources Board (and found by Dennis Chung at Motorcycle.com), the Red Dot winner will finally be able to evolve from time spent in European markets, spreading its “Friendly Toughness” to a welcoming industry with loads of rocks and scads of adventure to be had.
If you need a refresher on the Transalp’s specs, here they are:
2023 Honda XL750 Transalp Specifications
Liquid-cooled OHC 4-stroke 8-valve parallel twin with 270° crank and Unicam
Keep in mind, none of this is confirmed by the company yet; still, Dennis is right – with the Transalp slotted for a 2024 landing date and further certifications also approved for Honda’s CL500 Scrambler, ADV 160 and Grom, “it seems likely there will be an official announcement shortly.”
