Honda’s radical DN-01 to launch in the UK from August 1 …

Honda’s radical DN-01 to launch in the UK from August 1 It’s fair to say Honda is probably the most conservative of the major manufacturers — technology is introduced very slowly, designs are far from radical and quality and reliability rule the roost. So what the hell is the DN-01 doing in its product lineup? The category-busting cruisy sports maxi-scooter is set to launch August 1 in the UK, at which point we’ll learn if the market’s ready for a bike so outlandish. The DN-01 is the first bike to feature Honda’s new infinitely variable “Human-Friendly Transmission” (HFT) which is capable of operating in full automatic ‘drive’ mode or a manual shift 6-speed ’sports’ ...

Honda Motorcycle 2010 DN-01: A Review — Yahoo Voices — voices.yahoo.com

Honda: A Combination Continues On February 28, 2008, Honda announced the advent of the DN-01, a touring bike advocating a type of sporty road trip adventure. Even with a low-styled body, it remained a large sports cruiser, weighing in at 595 pounds dry weight. Honda’s goal was to convince serious riders that it was okay to combine some of the best features of a scooter, such as automatic transmission and more relaxed driving maneuvers, with the best features of a motorcycle: distance traveling, driving skill, and mechanically sound equipment. Aware that appearance is an instant attention grabber, they designed what they hoped would be an optimal choice, naming it the DN-01, after The ...

Drivers Seat Review of Honda’s DN-01 — WSJ.com

Save to Updated Sept. 21, 2009 1:56 p.m. ET Do you ride a motorcycle or a scooter? For some bikers, that’s like asking if you are a winner or a loser, a player or a poseur, a man or a mouse. It used to be an easy question to answer, but Honda just made it harder. With the new DN-01, pitched as a crossover motorcycle, the Japanese motorcycle giant wants to attract new riders by combining the speed, sharp handling and excitement of a sport motorcycle with the stability and ease of a scooter. It is a risky move, however — if riders start calling it a scooter, the company could lose sales. So, what’s the problem with scooters? In the eyes of some motorcyclists, they are too ...

Honda DN-01 Review — More HFT — Fuel economy — Comparison

Last Updated. 05 July 2013 Welcome to the next part of my very lengthy in-depth Honda DN-01 review. The main subject for this page is about the DN-01 fuel economy, more HFT stuff and mass media commentary and comparison with one of the fastest production motorcycles in the world. The DN-01 is a special and unique motorcycle. Not many will consider it purely based on the un-reasonable purchase price when new. Yes, the DN-01 is probably the most unrealistically priced new motorcycle on the planet. You can buy a Hayabusa on road for less in most countries. However the lucky few who can afford a new one or find a used one will appreciate it given a chance. Being the first Honda with HFT they ...

2009 Honda DN-01 Motorcycle- Honda Motorcycle Reviews

Test: 2009 Honda DN-01 Honda makes a case for the automatic motorcycle. The longtime dedicated motorcyclist approaches the scooter with some suspicion. Full bodywork, little wheels, little engines, all designed for ease and economy rather than speed and adventure. But despite its low, plastic profile and automatic transmission, the Honda DN-01is not a scooter. Start by looking at its 680cc V-Twin engine, 17-inch wheels and sport rubber. Realize that it has a gas tank between your legs, not the air of a step-through. Realize that you can’t call something that costs $14,599 a scooter. What to call it? Honda offers the word “crossover” and describes the DN-01 as a “comfortable sports ...

2009 Honda DN01 Review

2009 Honda DN01 Review Honda makes reference to some of its own historical, ground-breaking machines when it discusses the new DN-01 model in its press materials. Icons like the original CB750, the CBX and even the Goldwing are mentioned. Clearly, the company sees this new so-called cross-over model as something to spearhead a new direction in motorcycling. At the heart of the concept is an automatic transmission developed for and borrowed from the Honda Fourtrax Foreman Rubicon ATVa hydro-mechanical system called HFT that provides two fully automatic ranges along with a manually operated six-speed system for sporty riding. This new technology is showcased in a cruiser-type motorcycle, undoubtedly ...

Okay, so it may not “technically” be a scooter, but to dismiss it on a technicality would be a mistake. Words by JEREMY BOWDLER, photography by LOU MARTIN There’s a touch of the USS Enterprise about the new Honda DN-01, boldly going where no one has gone before. And if you close your eyes, you can almost see Captain James T. Kirk and Mr Spock cruising around some newly discovered planet on the DN-01, just before teleporting back to the mother ship. Maybe it’s the futuristic lines of the machine, or the seamless way the new transmission works but riding the DN makes you feel like you’re sampling tomorrow’s machine, today. Certainly that’s what everyone else ...
