Honda XL650V Transalp review

The Honda XL650V has been providing honest transport seemingly since the dawn of time. Revitalized with a bigger motor and a face-lift in 2000, its softly-chuffing charm and easy-going manners have won a devoted audiences. Mostly blokes more interested in getting from A to B than having a giggle buy them up. The SOHC V-twin of the Honda XL650 V Transalp should struggle with a weighty 192kg to cart about, but actually it does it quietly and efficiently.

Honda XL650 V

The Honda XL650V Transalp's motor is very reliable. It’s in a soft state of tune and, provided it’s regularly serviced, should go on forever. The older 600cc should be checked closely for worn wheel bearings, the suspension bearings in the Pro-Link shock, rusty exhausts and loose or broken spokes. The Honda XL650V Transalp’s equipment level is fair – you do get an ignition-based immobiliser, but the bashplate’s plastic not metal and a centrestand’s only available as a factory option. Ideally you’d want the factory heated grips, taller screen and hard luggage in your deal. More specs and user manual of XL 650 V Transalp you can see in next overview.
