Lot 102 - 2000 Honda Transalp XL600V '50th Anniversary'
|Odometer reading||2,970 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,754|
The XL600V Transalp ably represents the uniquely focused machines that Honda has designed, as much to venture off the beaten path as to travel in comfort along the highways and byways of the urban jungle. Based, in part, on the Paris-Dakar racers, the Transalp looked like a rugged desert stormer but it offered superbly comfortable ergonomics and the ability to cruise motorways with remarkable ease. The 50th Anniversary Edition of the Transalp harkened back to its original silvery blue colour, to provide a nostalgic 'retro' look for older customers who remember its astonishing debut, while at the same time provided a fresh 'new' look to appeal to younger riders for whom the Transalp is an old standby.
This rare Transalp XL600V anniversary model is one of the last of the desirable 600cc twin disc models. Having covered just 2,970 miles from new, it is completely original and unmolested, including its anniversary key and finished in Winter Lake metallic blue with stripes and graphics. It is supplied with the commemorative emblem, a complete, full Givi luggage kit, original handbook and service book, a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in June 2020. This is an opportunity to own a highly competent and rare, limited edition Honda.
