I bought this Transalp shortly after passing my DAS 18 months ago.
It’s had no mechanical issues (or any issues really) – just 23,000
miles. I had a new chain and sprockets fitted around 1,000 miles ago.
I also had a second key cut and programmed as it only had one (£65).
It has some service history, including the last major service (showing
valve clearances checked) at 18,000 miles.
A previous owner dropped it on its right hand side (at low speed) and
it has cracked the right fairing – I’ve tried to take a picture
showing it at its worst.
I had this smaller screen fitted (genuine Honda part from Chiswick
Honda) – the taller one (touring screen I think it’s called) was noisy
for me at my height – this is included in the sale in case someone
wants to switch it back.
There’s a factory fitted centre stand and luggage rack. There are also
two Honda side panniers (factory ones which came with the bike) – the
left hand one is fine, but the right hand one has a broken hinge and
is scratched, presumably from when the bike was dropped as mentioned
earlier. It works fine with a strap tied round it for good measure, I
The front tire has plenty of life in it. My mechanic says the rear
will need changing in 1000 miles, or so.
Tax runs out end of November, MOT end of Feb 2012.
It’s in London, NW11.
I’m asking £1,300.
