Honda files Transalp Name in the US

Here comes the news form the states. The Honda Transalp may be getting a comeback as a fresh model, with Honda trademarking the name in the US.

Honda has registered for the name Transalp in the US as new trademark filings in the US unveil. Reports from Japan and even Europe have been abuzz for last year that Honda is developing something of the smaller Africa Twin, with a 750 cc engine, likely to be named the Transalp.


Now, with the Honda trademarking the name in the States, it looks like those reports weren’t entirely in the air after all, and Honda is likely to restore the Transalp name once again, possibly in a middleweight adventure model, sitting among the Honda CB500X and the Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin.

The Honda Transalp expects to be a middleweight Africa Twin, with a 750 cc engine from the Honda NC750.
Renders published by the Japanese publication Young Machine do give an impression of the design, but the fact is that these aren’t standard designs. So, we don’t grasp what the Transalp will look like or what engine will be powering it.


The previous Honda Transalp was produced between 1987 till 2008, with engine displacement varying from 400 cc to 680 cc in the final Honda XL700V Transalp. And going by the Transalp’s old product positioning, the new Transalp will also be a road-oriented adventure tourer but presumed to sit below the Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin.


The 2021 Honda Africa Twin will be proposed in either a DCT or manual version.
Several reports worldwide reflect that the new Honda Transalp will feature an engine distributed with the Honda NC750 and one of three new models featuring the NC750 engine.

The new Transalp may be named the XL750L, or the CB750X, positioned over the Honda CB500X. With around 50 bhp from the 750 cc engine of the NC750, which can be proposed with a DCT automatic gearbox and offered as an option in the mid-size adventure segment, without bordering on the Africa Twin’s market.
