Unique Dual Clutch Transmission Technology by Honda

DCT is an automated clutch and shift operation system that retains the direct acceleration feel of a manual transmission with the ease of use of an automatic. DCT allows the rider to focus on accelerating, turning and braking, rather than gear shifting. This increases confidence and control for the rider. DCT technology takes the joy of riding and controlling your machine to the next level.

Control: Switch between auto and manual mode to suit any riding environment. Eliminate shift shocks like an expert biker. It's the bike's second nature to perform shift transmissions seamlessly, so that you have full control of your adventures every time.
