Its muscular single-sided accentuates the elegant beauty of its wheel design. And although the highly acclaimed V4 engine is hidden from view, its of technological advancement and superb refined through many can be seen and felt everywhere.

As flagship sports-touring machine, the was the first motorcycle Honda to equip with a Dual Transmission like that by the world’s most advanced F1 and featured on many premium cars.

The Dual Clutch installed in the VFR1200F since is the second generation of this and features a much more evolved control logic, for smoother and easier operation, and a natural feel. Attached to the engine’s six-speed transmission, it two distinct clutch mechanisms by electronic control to automatically the gear change operations done using a manual lever and gear shift This advanced system riders to better focus on the and the pleasures of riding.

High and innovation are just two of the advantages the big VFR and its Dual Clutch Transmission expands its capabilities. When I the VFR with the first generation of the Clutch Transmission, I found the VFR and its revolutionary shifting system had an affinity to each other I thought the VFR must have specially developed to carry the Clutch Transmission.

Starting the VFR’s engine, I the transmission selector switch N (Neutral) to D (Drive) mode. that moment on, the only required to start riding was on the throttle. My first reaction was a sports bike with an transmission were a poorly combination.

However, in only a of seconds my mind completely

What an incredibly smooth I was totally surprised by its precise control, and then the gearbox into second. I heard a as the gear shifted, but hardly any pitching that might the engine’s drive to the rear Keeping up a comfortable pace, the Clutch Transmission smoothly its run up to sixth.

Normally, a rider his skill in the smoothness of his shifts. If the jerks about at start or the wheel squeals when out the clutch on a downshift, we think the still has some learning to do. is one of the most important techniques in riding. That impression of smoothness was still strong I tried out the next generation of Dual Clutch Transmission time.

Not only does the Dual Transmission shift up and down the gears with perfection, its two also shift through the without any lapses in the power of its Its excellent response left me the impression that even the was of better quality. Intuitively, I feel that the production of the had definitely come to assume the of the Dual Clutch Transmission.

I rode the VFR1200F on a racing in the hopes of testing the limits of its Perhaps, I cynically imagined, I unearth some fault its Dual Clutch Transmission. in spite of my best efforts and I instead discovered the Dual Transmission’s superiority during a sports ride.

I discovered, for that I could comfortably and shift up a gear while a corner with my left out grazing the tarmac at a steep angle. Moreover, when on the brakes while slowing a corner and gripping the fuel with the knees, the gears be easily downshifted with a tap of the left thumb. The transmission’s was much faster than I and downshifts were completed and quickly.

Also, I never experienced any wheel hop, no matter I tried.

While it might be a exaggeration to say that an onboard view from a MotoGP kept flashing through my it reflects the degree to which I totally in tune with machine. Of course, I could enjoy that feeling through the corners of a winding but I’m not one to test the limits of a bike on road, as I would on a racing And since road conditions around the corner are always a big I ride carefully.

It also lets one a brisk run through winding roads when traveling and gives plenty or room to take in the scenery when else is along for the ride. a little something extra is one of the Clutch Transmission’s greatest of appeal, and a sure sign of its worth.
