Think we will see more and more manufacturers going down the DCT route as it becomes more popular and certainly appears to be reliable so far

Yamaha beating Honda to the punch. Always saying the big H need to put the DCT gearbox on a sportsbike for it to become acceptable to us narrow minded Brits.

R1? Meh! I'm still waiting for Yamaha to put that gorgeous sounding cross-plane crank engine in a Fazer style bike, half faired or naked. Yes please.

Cant believe DCT Gearbox in a sportsbike cause its weight is to high (appr. 10 kg) - but can imagine a seamless gearbox, the way it is used in the Motor GP (see pictures 5 and 6 --> http://www.motorradonline.de/testsfahrberichte/getriebetechnik-im-rennsport/507900#1 )

I think the R1 they are talking about is already in and on sale my mate has one, no DCT on it though if you look at when the article was written. Its one fast thing but still cant keep up with the CT over the moors. :001:

You need both bikes the R1 for a quick blast just like any other superbike more than a hour and my arse has gone to sleep and the CT for the serious all day riding in shear comfort.
