The VFR1200FD features dual clutch transmission, the world’s first fully automatic dual clutch transmission for large-displacement motorcycles. This new transmission offers riders the enjoyment of full sports riding capabilities along with effortless and seamless operation, applied in a powerful, large-displacement machine. At the same time, this transmission’s superior efficiency can deliver fuel efficiency equal to or better than a conventional manual transmission. To respond to rider demands through a broad range of conditions and situations, the transmission offers three operating modes: two full-auto modes (D-mode for relaxed, fuel efficient operation and S-mode for sports riding), and a six-speed gear-select mode for full rider control via electronic trigger-shift controls that deliver the same shifting response as a manual transmission.
