It's even better on the DCT being a bit like using a quickshifter (not that i have ever used one  :745:)

rather than power its the TORQUE that gets it up and away

I agree, it is one rapid motorcycle, even if I do have to change gear now and again.

It' heavy+probably not that aerodynamic+127bhp isn't colossal+ the shaft must sap some power..yet...whoosh!
It must be the torque, yet i was told that it's bhp that dictates the speed.
I should have tried the DCT cos i now wish i'd bought the DSG Scirocco.

A toast  :031: to all CT riders!

After 10 years of riding Beemer GS I`m switching back to Honda and damn, I will need to get used to the accelerating abilities of this bike. I still own a 1150GS and it`s like a tractor compared to the Xtourer.
