Oberdan Bezzi, a digital designer with a wealth of knowledge about motorcycle history, has combined the new XL 750 Transalp and the XLV 750R from a Japanese brand to create a modern adventure bike with 80s styling. Although the XLV produced between 1983 and 1986 had a 749cc air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder engine, it was not suitable for off-road riding due to its weight of 219.5kg and 61.1bhp at 7000rpm.

Bezzi's concept retains the blue/white/red colour scheme of the Transalp but excludes the Japanese manufacturer's gold wing logo while adding HRC graphics. He also incorporates the XLV's fuel tank, rally-style seat, rectangular headlight and front mudguard. To maintain the dual-sport or touring style of the 1980s, Bezzi uses classically styled fairings to cover the 755cc twin-cylinder engine from the Transalp, which delivers 67.5 kW of maximum power and strong torque across the entire rev range, with a maximum value of 75 Nm.


Bezzi uses the exhaust system from the Honda CL500 and the chain system from the adventure bike. Additionally, he includes hand guards and silver rims to complete the transformation of the XL 750 Transalp and XLV 750R.
