Assist slipper clutch

The new CBR1000RR is fitted with an assist slipper clutch with the same specifications as its predecessor, of the same type as that loaded in the RC212V, making smooth engagement possible. By assisting with clutch capacity at times when even greater transmission capacity is needed for the clutch such as when accelerating, the assist slipper clutch allows smoother shifting and even lighter clutch operation with no need for a powerful clutch spring. In those instances when excessive back torque from engine braking is generated such as when decelerating, this back torque is reduced, contributing to a decrease in the burden on the rider.
