Honda's Automatic DCT Transmission

Enjoy the Ride

Honda’s revolutionary automatic DCT transmission will transform your riding experience. It eliminates clutch levers, stalling, and the need for you to shift, while also giving you complete control to select gears if you want to. And in certain conditions, it offers better power delivery than any conventional manual transmission can. Freedom of choice, freedom from shifting: DCT is the transmission of the future, available today. And only from Honda.

SEE WHAT DCT IS ALL ABOUT


Our Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission eliminates the clutch and shift levers. Shifting by itself, it makes riding simpler and rewards you with a smooth power delivery. Paddle shifters and selectable ride modes give you as much control as you’d like.

HOW DCT WORKS


On the inside, the automatic DCT looks similar to a manual transmission with rugged steel gears. But this transmission has a brain. In automatic mode, it shifts up and down by itself. More importantly, it shifts smoothly for a seamless, uninterrupted power flow with no fear of stalling.

WHAT IS DCT?


Honda's Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) is a breakthrough feature that makes riding easier and more fun.

PROVEN Honda DURABILITY


Because our DCT is built with steel gears inside, there are no drive belts to slip, break, or burn up, and there’s no torque converter. They’re as tough and efficient as any manual gearbox.

SELECTABLE RIDE MODES


Programmed Ride Modes like Drive, Sport and Manual allow you to select the kind of ride your DCT delivers. Many models even feature a mode you can customize yourself.

LOW-SPEED MANEUVERING


DCT’s seamless power delivery is a big benefit on steep hills or when you’re riding in a low-speed situation.

STEEP HILLS


Eliminate the drama that comes with stopping and restarting on a steep incline. DCT lets you twist and go.

AVOID THE CLUNK


Ever knock helmets with your passenger when shifting? That won’t happen with a DCT.

REAL-WORLD CONVENIENCE


No clutch means no hunting for neutral, and a left hand that can use a garage-door opener or pay at a toll booth.

WELCOME TO DCT


Honda's Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) is a breakthrough feature that makes riding easier and more fun.

PROVEN Honda DURABILITY


Because our DCT is built with steel gears inside, there are no drive belts to slip, break, or burn up, and there’s no torque converter either. They’re as tough and efficient as any manual gearbox.

SELECTABLE RIDE MODES


Programmed Ride Modes like Drive, Sport and Manual allow you to adjust the Africa Twin’s ride character. There’s also a special G-Switch for off-road riding, that helps you slide the rear tire under throttle input, to help steer with the rear.

TRUE ENGINE COMPRESSION BRAKING


Engine compression braking is key to bike control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills off-road. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals, you get genuine compression braking—and control.

REAL-WORLD CONVENIENCE


DCT means no hunting for neutral or reaching for a shifter when you’re standing on the pegs. Plus, your left hand is free to activate a garage-door opener, find a parking key card or pay at a toll booth.

RACE-PROVEN TECHNOLOGY


Supercars and Formula 1 use paddle-shift transmissions because they offer the fastest, most efficient shifting and deliver consistent power to the ground.

LOW-SPEED MANEUVERING


DCT’s seamless power delivery is a big benefit on steep hills or in low-speed situations.

STEEP HILLS


Eliminate the drama that comes with stopping and restarting on a steep incline. DCT lets you twist and go.

THE DCT DIFFERENCE


This is more than just an automatic. It’s technology that gives your ATV some huge real-world advantages.

SELECTABLE SHIFTING MODES


Choose between automatic shifting, or shift for yourself using manual mode and fingertip paddle-type shifters.

DCT EQUIPPED RANCHER SHOWN

BETTER POWER DELIVERY


Intelligent power delivery helps keep the driving wheels from breaking loose, offering a smooth, continuous flow of power without the shifting interruptions that can cause momentary traction loss. It’s a huge advantage in rocky or muddy conditions.

TRUE ENGINE COMPRESSION BRAKING


Compression braking is key to control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals and not some add-on system, you get genuine compression braking—and control.

DCT EQUIPPED RANCHER SHOWN

BETTER TRACTION, EVERYWHERE


By constantly monitoring power delivery to the drive wheels, you get the most of all available traction. Predictable, smooth power comes in handy in areas where traction is at a premium.

EFFICIENT AND DURABLE


Because our DCT is so efficient, more power gets to the ground. Plus, there are no belts to slip, break, or burn up.

PADDLE SHIFTING


Every DCT offers a Manual Mode where you can shift on command with a pair of paddle-type shifters mounted on the handlebars.
