2024 Honda Transalp is Coming to America
XL750 adventure-touring model gets certified by CARB
The California Air Resources Board has issued an executive order for the Honda XL750 Transalp, certifying the mid-sized adventure-tourer for the 2024 model year.
Honda presented the Transalp at EICMA, introducing a new ADV to slot in below the Africa Twin. Deliveries for the Transalp have reported started in Europe, but until now, there has been no indication that it would be coming to North America.
That has now changed, with the Transalp getting CARB approval.
The Transalp is powered by the new 755cc Parallel-Twin engine that debuted on the Honda Hornet, which has as of now is still not available for North America. With the XL750 adventure bike now confirmed for the U.S. market, that does renew hope that the standard CB750 Hornet will also be imported.
There is no indication about when American Honda will formally announce the Transalp for the U.S., but with the CL500 Scrambler, ADV 160 scooter and an updated Grom also recently getting certified, it seems likely there will be an official announcement shortly.
