2007 Honda XLV650 Transalp

Honda XL650V

The Honda XL650V Transalp has been providing honest transport seemingly since the dawn of time. The range of accessories for the HONDA TRANSALP 650 includes aluminum panniers, soft luggage, top boxes, engine guard , crash bars, center stands, heated grips, HID (Xenon) advanced headlamp systems, spot lights, Sena SMH 10  motorcycle communication system and handlebar risers.

The Transalp is a very difficult bike to dislike. The styling, while unlikely to win any awards, stopped grating after a short time, and the effective fairing and screen were very welcome when the weather turned a little nasty. The smooth and amiable engine was easy to live with and the handling was better than expected. However, the Transalp is very, very easy to ride and is incredibly practical. It is also cheap, at just over five grand on the road.
