WELCOME TO DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION

Scroll

EXPERIENCE THE FUTURE

When it comes to power transmission you can enjoy the best of both worlds. DCT is a shifting system that delivers manual drive with automatic convenience. So, you can experience every ride just the way you want it. Need the smoothest, most relaxed and fuel-efficient performance? Let DCT work for you in Automatic mode, with no loss in driving efficiency. Or, if you want to work DCT, select Manual mode and treat it just like a standard gearbox, shifting up or down when and where you please, in the rev-range you want.

TECHNOLOGY WORKING

Hidden away inside the engine, Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) is an extremely clever system that uses two hydraulically-controlled clutches to always have the next gear ready, up or down. You get the benefits of a manual transmission – direct drive feel with better efficiency – plus the smooth, easy riding pleasure that an automatic provides. And, like all the very best technology, DCT is so simple to use; leave it do its thing and get on with your day. Or via the up/down trigger shifters on the left handlebar, instantly shift gears in either direction just as you would with a manual transmission, so you can fully explore the engine’s performance. It’s intuitive to use and auto-blips through rapid down changes.

FREEDOM

Ride without concerning yourself with the clutch lever and shift pedal, for smooth and seamless gear changes. The morning rush hour, an important meeting, or trips out with friends, have never been easier. Simply start the engine and open the throttle. Relax, and enjoy the ride.
