Honda Motorcycles types
Two wheels, two clutches, no waiting.
Although Honda doesn’t yet have a dual-clutch transmission (DCT) in any of its cars, it has just introduced the first-ever device of
that type on one of its motorcycles. The VFR1200F is powered by a 170-hp, 1237-cc V-4 and features an optional, fully electronic, multimode DCT ($1500).
The Honda transmission follows automotive practice, with two clutches and two shafts—one turning within the other, each responsible for half of the six gears. But the constant-mesh, dog-engagement system—selected here by a motorized shift drum—is typical of motorcycles.
