Slotting between the CB500X and Africa Twin, the 2024 Honda Transalp is a new adventure bike powered by a 755cc parallel-Twin. The original Transalp was sold in the U.S. for only two years (1989-1990), but the model continued to evolve in Europe. The iconic bike returns to America to compete in the red-hot middleweight ADV segment.

We put the Transalp through its on-road and off-road paces during a two-day, 250-mile test amidst the vibrant autumn foliage of central Pennsylvania. Our route included the rugged Section 4 of the BDR-X PA Wilds and challenging twists near State College.
