1996 – Yeah sure, a ‘tiny’ Transalp. This is the model that Honda sells in Japan. Why not a 600cc ? That has to do with the driver license categories. In Japan you can get a license for a ‘small bike’ up to 400cc, or one for a ‘big bike’ over 400cc. Kind of the same as in The Netherlands and other parts of Europe. And because it is easier (and cheaper) to get your small bike license Honda sells a 400cc Transalp. Just because that model has more market potential than a 600cc model.
Except for the Engine: the Transalp 400cc is identical to the XL600V. The mileage is better (33km/l @60kmph), power (37hp @ 8500rpm) and torque (3.5kgm @ 6500rpm) are less compared to the TA600. Weight: (183kg) is the same. Pay attention to the cooling design of the Engine: . Bit different from the 600.
