2010 Honda XL700V Transalp: First pics, specs

New colours and graphics for the 2010 Honda XL700V Transalp...

Honda have announced the 2010-spec XL700V Transalp ‘adventure sports tourer’, which gets new colours and graphics and… not much else in the way of changes. The 680cc liquid-cooled v-twin remains the same and ‘delivers impressive roll-on acceleration and strong, torque-filled performance, especially in its wide midrange,’ says a press release from Honda. ‘The PGM-FI system helps deliver high fuel economy, responsive throttle control and low exhaust emissions,’ it claims.

Combined-ABS is now also available on the new Honda Transalp. And the accessories list includes 29-litre pannier kit and 45-litre top box, same key operation for both ignition and top box, a higher windscreen, front and rear fog lamp kits, grip heaters and a motorcycle navigation kit.
