Honda Ignition Security System (HISS)

Like most of Honda’s larger displacement motorcycles, the new Transalp is also fully equipped with the highly capable Honda Ignition Security System (HISS), which features a fail-safe electronic interlock to prevent the engine from being started by anything other than the machine’s two original keys, thus providing effective protection against ride-away theft. Designed to totally disable the engine at the very heart of its ignition system, the HISS system cannot be bypassed by hot-wiring the ignition or exchanging the ignition switch module.

 Optional Equipment

Honda Access Europe NV will supply the new Transalp with a wide assortment of optional accessories designed to extend its riding range and versatility. These accessories include:

  • A locking 45-litre top box in matching colours designed to carry two full-face helmets and more with security and ease. Features integrated pillion back rest and handy, quick-detach locking mounting system.
  • A set of two black polyurethane armrests, which attach to the sides of the 45-litre top box lid for enhanced pillion riding comfort.
  • A set of specially designed, aerodynamic and fully integrated 29-litre capacity panniers.
  • A set of decorative brushed aluminium pannier panels.
  • A ruggedly constructed, deluxe finish expanding inner bag designed to fit inside the top box which greatly facilitates packing, with carrying handles and shoulder belt to ease transport.
  • A set of two strong light grey nylon inner pannier bags designed to protect their contents while offering handy straps for carrying ease. 16-litre capacity with front pocket featuring embroidered Honda Wing logo included.
  • An easy-to-use Honda Motorcycle Navigation kit that finds towns, addresses, POI (Points of Interest) or Honda dealerships across Europe with 2D and 3D onscreen guidance accompanied by handy voice prompts. Integrated Bluetooth wireless technology provides inhelmet voice guidance while permitting mobile phone operation with both hands safely on the handlebars. Comes with specially designed mounting bracket and wiring.
  • A motion and vibration-sensitive anti-theft AVERTO security system that warns off potential tamperers and thieves with a piercing wail. Low-consumption sleep mode protects the battery from drainage.
  • Front and rear fog lamp kits that improve visibility in foggy conditions.
  • A 17mm taller clear polycarbonate windscreen with deflectors that improves overall wind protection at higher speeds.
  • A 20mm lower replacement seat for enhanced ridingcomfort and an easier reach to the ground for shorter riders.
