Its two independently actuated then smoothly transfer speed from one gear to the without zeroing out the drive transmitted to the rear wheel.

greatly minimizes the shock of engagement, even when gears during hard or deceleration, thus realizing precise gear shift and smooth, seamless riding Also contributing to a smoother the Dual Clutch Transmission ECU is programmed to minimize unnecessary changes by monitoring riding on curvy roads like passes.

This allows the to better concentrate on the road and more fully enjoy the of acceleration and braking, as well as the scenery. As a result, since the mechanism is virtually the same as a six-speed transmission, its smooth, advanced control delivers gear shifts that expert riders will at, and a higher level of smooth and riding capability that can fully enjoy.
