Yamaha TDM 900 vs Honda Transalp 650
I'm a 2002 Transalp 650 owner for the last 5 months.
Bought with 6000km, has 10500 know, all days to work.
Allaways wanted a Transalp 650 or F650gs.
I'm happy with it, it's my first motorbike, even if I have my license for 11 years...
Drawbacks... weight, low power, very high gravitacional center...
Very weak with a passenger...
Another trail (I only like trails), no more weight, more power.
Suzuki Vstrom 650... seems very good... I hate it...!!!
Same dry weight (190kg), better road handling, much better engine, and EFI.
Allways loved the TDM and the new one is awesome!
A few days ago I've seatted my self on a TDM 900 and it felt much lighter than the Transalp and I loved the engine working, very nice.
Will this my next motorbike in a year or so?
I think so... any opinions guys?
