Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission ensures seamless and even smoother gear changes – in any of its three riding modes – making the Crosstourer a supremely versatile motorcycle. Using two electronically controlled clutches, the system offers the choice of manual gear shifting and two fully automatic modes, one for general use (D-mode) and another for high performance riding (S-mode). The Crosstourer's Dual Clutch Transmission also features new software logic with added functionality.
The Crosstourer is equipped with Honda's Traction Control System (TCS). This system monitors rear wheel speed, looking for fluctuations that could suggest an imminent loss of traction and, subsequently, machine control. If the system believes wheel-spin is imminent, engine power is momentarily reduced, maintaining traction. The system can be switched off in accordance with the rider's preferences.
