Tokyo 2007 Preview: DN-01 motorcycle features transmission

Automatic transmissions in are not new, with Ridley one manufacturer currently producing In fact, back in the 1970s, and Moto Guzzi both motorcycles with automatic each with two forward Honda called its system and the bikes are still in demand because of their shiftless

That older machine an automatic transmission quite to the one that came with the complete with a torque Honda has also used an centrifugal clutch on many of its play-bikes from the 1950s on. So not too big of a surprise that Honda is to be introducing the DN-01 at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show, with an automatic of its own called the Transmission (HFT).

After the we’ll give a brief of this new transmission. As you’ll it’s a very different from what has been before.

Those who motorcycling news closely may that almost two years Honda first showed the concept at the 39th Tokyo Show. That bike a 680cc V-Twin engine and an version of Honda’s still-in-development HFT Looks like they’ve gotten the development work because they are now saying the DN-01 with its HFT is “a new motorcycle for market launch”.

We think pretty darn good considering that Aprilia is about ready to start its 850 Mana, which also a V-Twin and an automatic transmission.

like the result of a Vulcan meld between a Honda and the new CBR1000RR, the DN-01 concept ’05 kept the floorboards and low seat from the scooter and added the engine and exhaust from the We’re not sure if the production will keep this look, but the low seat height at least stay put. If you the looks of the DN-01, consider the 850 Mana, which looks more traditional.

We’ve got to hand it to Honda because it has come up with pretty creative for production in the The engine powers a hydraulic which in turn powers a motor. By varying the speed the two, the transmission can either the output torque or the output making for an infinitely variable

Honda believes that the will be the world’s first hydraulic transmission that lockup, which should cut the losses of the hydraulic system for efficiency and better fuel

Here is a picture from which might help what’s going on here:

If still not making sense, a look at the following diagram:

Any If not… that’s OK just so as you accept the fact that it right? Here’s the press

Honda Develops HFT, a New Transmission System for Motorcycles

Japan, October 4, 2007–Honda Co. Ltd. announced that it has the Human-Friendly Transmission (HFT), a new transmission system for motorcycles Honda’s own infinitely variable mechanical transmission. Easy to the HFT realizes outstanding relaxed comfort, riding feel direct response and excellent efficiency.

The HFT will be installed on the a new motorcycle scheduled for market to be introduced at the 40th Tokyo Show.

With Honda’s own infinitely hydraulic mechanical transmission, HFT realizes the lightweight and compact required for motorcycles. To meet the range of rider needs, HFT a selection from two fully shifting modes-D mode for riding and S mode for a sporty experience-or the 6-speed manual which gives riders the of riding with a manual feel.

The HFT creates a unique feel through easy ranging from relaxed and riding to nimble and sporty direct throttle response. the aim of providing products useful in the day lives of customers, Honda has and sold motorcycles equipped easy-to-operate automatic riding

As a pioneer in the era of automatic systems, launched the Super Cub C100 in equipped with an automatic clutch mechanism, which riding without the need of operation. The Eara (750cc), in 1977, was a first large-sized featured a torque converter in In 1980, Honda put the Tact on the a machine equipped with the original continuously variable the V-Matic, and Honda has continued to a variety of new mechanisms up into the

A transmission system with a range of functions in a single the HFT is a compact and highly efficient variable transmission system functions for starting, power and shifting, all on a single shaft. The configuration of the system consists of an oil for converting engine power hydraulic pressure, and an oil motor for the hydraulic pressure back power for output. Both are up of multiple pistons, a distributor and a swash plate for piston while the cylinders are integrated the output shaft, forming the structure of the HFT.

The HFT also features the world’s lockup mechanism for an infinitely hydraulic mechanical transmission. cruising, this lockup works to minimize transmission losses, contributing to improved economy.
