Here's More About It:
Original 1990 HONDA Dealer Brochure Ad. (Not actual motorcycle for sale) 1990 HONDA Transalp 600 with 8,200 original miles. Moonstone grey factory color and graphics. Fully loaded. Garaged kept always. Ridden mostly on highway and local backroads. Accurately maintained and cared for. All oil changes during my time were done with Mobil 1 Synthetic for motorcycles. New chain and sprockets were installed in 2014 with less that 1500 miles. Tires (Dunlop Trailmax) are in good shape for another 3,000 miles. The tank has a small ding on the left side which is not easily visible and there is a small scratch on the left cowl by the petcock. No other noticeable blemishes. All factory lightbulbs have been upgraded/updated to LED including the tag light. If motorcycles were tools, the Honda Transalp XL600V would be one of those nifty Leatherman Multi Tool combos we seem to see hanging off the belt of every handyman we know.Styled to look like it was made for cooking across the desert, dodging brush and flying over sand dunes, the Honda Transalp was built to capitalize on the company's Paris-to-Dakar rally victories in the mid-Eighties.Offered in Europe for two years before coming Stateside in 1989, the bike is an unusual combination of parts and pieces that worked better for more kinds of riding than most anyone expected. Thirty-one years later (Since 1987) the bike is still a fun and versatile mount with a short list of limitations.

I am the second owner. Bike had less than 2000 miles on the day of purchase. I used it to go to the HONDA HOOT (Motorcycle Rallies held by American HONDA) in (TN) in 2003, several Annual Transalp Rallies (GA) in 2004 & 2005 and a few Daytona Bikeweeks. Always trailered to the events and ridden short distances as I owned other motorcycles at the time which got more usage. Bike was always meticulously maintained with Mobil 1 Synthetic oil. Garage kept and even when out on trips it was covered with waterproof rain protection. This is not your average Transalp that has been ridden hard and put away wet. The price is based on realistic market values not KBB or NADA. If anyone bought any US Transalp (89 or 90) today with about 35K miles in "fair" conditions, by the time they repaired all the dings and purchased all the accessories needed, they would be close to this asking price or well over it. Parts and accessories are still available from American HONDA, HONDA Europe and most retailers on the internet where you will have no problem maintaining it or adding additional comfort farkles. No rust. No engine, suspension or electrical problems. Bulletproof Old School Honda reliability. Bike needs nothing but a rider and a good home. Frequently asked questions: 1. Were the CDI Modules replaced since they go bad on most Transalps? Yes, replaced on January 2014. 2. Has the bike had the rear suspension links serviced lately? Yes, the pivot links, rear swingarm and rear shock were are serviced on February 2018. 3. How old are the currently installed Dunlop tires? Both tires were installed in 2013. They have about 3,000 approximately miles left on them. 4. How are the brakes? Both brakes where serviced on January 2014. Front pads and rear shoes have plenty of usage left. 5. How are the chain and sprockets? Both chain and sprockets were replaced on January 2014. Plenty of life left on all parts. 6. Why is the bike being sold?No longer have the time to ride it. The bike is ready to go anywhere, do anything and needs absolutely nothing other than a good home and TLC. Asking price is based on the value of the bike in its present condition with all the upgrades and accessories. $3,800.00 Motorcycle Realistic Market Value (not KBB or NADA) $1,000.00 Accessories Feel free to ask any questions if in doubt.
