New model delivers all-around mid-size ADV Performance

CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP returns

In an announcement today, American Honda revealed that the highly anticipated XL750 Transalp is coming to the U.S. market for the 2024 model year. Originally introduced in 1986, the Transalp touts a rich heritage in the adventure category, where it is renowned for its ability to perform on the pavement and explore past the road’s end. Carrying this same ethos, the new-generation Transalp has been a hit in the European market over the past few months, and now U.S. customers will be able to enjoy this versatile, middleweight ADV platform.

“As the adventure category continues to thrive and evolve, customers are more eager than ever to get out and explore,” said Brandon Wilson, American Honda Manager of Racing & Experiential Marketing. “The all-new, midsize XL750 Transalp joins Honda’s iconic Africa Twin and pocket-adventurer CB500X to complete our popular True Adventure lineup, ready to deliver unforgettable outdoor experiences to U.S. ADV enthusiasts from coast to coast.”

In addition to announcing the new Transalp, American Honda confirmed that the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP returns for the 2023 model year. With countless racing accolades to its credit, the Fireblade represents the pinnacle of Honda’s sport-bike range. Purpose-built for circuit racing, its highly refined engine package and cutting-edge technology are a testament to Honda’s commitment to racing and performance.

2024 XL750 Transalp

Around town or around the world, Honda’s brand-new XL750 Transalp carries the adventure forward from the iconic original, ready for a fresh generation of riders looking to travel wherever the road leads. The new-generation Transalp is friendly but tough—perfect for extended touring trips, as well as the urban cut and thrust, and all points in between. It’s at home slicing through a mountain pass or kicking up dust on rough dirt trails, and it adds to the formula a high-performance engine, all-new design and the equipment level that modern riders demand. The versatile Transalp can be fine-tuned for specific applications with Honda accessory collections that include Adventure, Touring, City and Comfort options.

2023 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP

So rich is the lineage of the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP that its name is practically synonymous with racing success: The words “CBR,” “Fireblade” or “triple-R,” literally evoke images of top-level circuit-competition glory. Designed and developed with zero compromises when it comes to track use, and drawing upon a record of continuous accomplishments since the introduction of the original, game-changing CBR models, the Fireblade SP boasts ultimate technology including a powerful inline-four-cylinder engine, elite electronic suspension and highly advanced rider aids. That being the case, it should be no surprise that this is the model that has topped the last two editions of the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race.
