Transalp 600 (2-UP prep'd) UK Registered - Buenos Aires in March
We are due to finish our trip in March in Buenos Aires and are considering selling our beloved Transalp instead of flying it home to the UK.
The bike runs brilliantly and has not missed a beat. It will have approximately 55,000kms (34,000miles) on the clock when the trip has finished (barely run-in for a Transalp)
It's setup for 2-up touring with the Autocom system and uprated suspension and it'll tour comfortably all day fully loaded.

As you can see, it has had a lot of time and money spent on this bike. It'll go anywhere and keeps up with bigger bikes no problem even when loaded.
The side boxes are not included but the Givi Monokey topbox is.
Loads of spares and tools supplied including new CDI unit. Currently carrying new DID X-Ring Chain and Sprocket kit but it maybe fitted before the end of the trip if necessary.
I've done all of maintenance myself and all bearings/seals were checked or replaced at the start of the trip and servicing is done on time or before it is required.
The engine is strong as you would expect, has no leaks and only uses a small amount of oil if used at prolonged highway speeds. (I have just finished a 1L container of semi-synthetic oil while riding for 2 months and 5 countries later in South America)
I'll throw in two HJC fliptop helmets (1 x Medium 1 x Small) with Autocom headsets for the asking price (can be removed and refitted into new helmets) and have 2 new spare microphones for the new owner.
Please contact me if you need any other info. US$2750
