Much is made in Honda’s promotional blurb of the Transalp being a new concept in motorcycle design, and the term Rally Touring even ends up on the Transalp’s side panels. Despite Honda’s claims, the concept of a Rally Tourer (by which I suppose they mean a triple-purpose bike – street, trail and tourer) is far from new. The Italians and French have been converting big trailers into rally tourers for some Year: s now, although it was BMW who really started it all off with the R80GS back in 1981. (Some would argue that BSA were the first with the Firebird, but basically all that was was a lightly modified A65 Thunderbolt so it doesn’t count.)
