Unlike those two though, the Transcontinental gets a bolder character with its laid-back riding position, a large windscreen at the top, wider handlebars, a tear-drop-shaped tank, wind deflectors and more.

Power here comes from the same 1,802cc twin-cylinder boxer engine, which puts out 90PS of power and 158Nm of torque delivered as low as 3,000rpm. Along with the 6-speed gearbox, you also get the option of reverse gear.
