What is the Dual Clutch Transmission?
Dual Clutch Transmission is a motorcycle transmission that automates clutch and shift operation while retaining the essential structure and direct acceleration feel of a manual transmission. Since clutch operation is not required, the rider is free to focus on operating the throttle and brakes. Moreover, Dual Clutch Transmission offers acceleration and shifting while minimizing the power gaps that occur during shifting with a manual transmission.
As the name suggests, Dual Clutch Transmission features two clutches: one for off-the-line acceleration and 1st, 3rd and 5th gears, and one for 2nd, 4th and 6th gears. The use of this technology in a motorcycle is a world’s first.
Dual Clutch Transmission offers AT Mode for automatic shifting and MT Mode for rider-controlled shifting. In addition, AT Mode comprises D Mode for daily riding and S Mode for sporty riding.
