At the recent Edmonton show, staff at the Honda Canada booth revealed that the company currently has three Transalps in the country for testing and consumer opinion.
However, a Honda Canada spokesperson replied to our requests for more information by saying "we are not bringing this model to Canada now or any time in the near future". Bugger.
They did however add that they’d be interested to hear from the CMG readership as to what their thoughts are on the Transalp and potential pricing, so please feel free to add you comments in the comments section below.
Also present at the Edmonton show was a new SH125i scooter. Much like the Transalp, the SH125 is "on display for the purpose of gathering public opinion information. We cannot confirm that this model is being brought to Canada at this time either". Hmhh, sounds like a yes to us.
FYI, the SH uses a liquid-cooled four stroke motor, pushing out a claimed 10 kW at 9,000 rpm. The chassis comes with a disc front brake (which is linked to the rear) and larger-for-a-scooter 16 inch wheels.
Total claimed weight is 123kg.
