Let’s take a look at how Dual Clutch Transmission automatically operates the clutch and performs shifts during acceleration and deceleration in the VFR1200F.
With a regular manual transmission, the rider changes gears with the left shift pedal. This action rotates the shift drum, and shift forks slide the gears into position. In Dual Clutch Transmission, the shift control motor performs this same function, turning a gear shift spindle. (With the optionally available shift pedal, the mechanism is identical.)
