    How would the average owner even know.......it’s not like your cell phone where the current version of software is easily checked.

    Over the years and models Honda may  have made 100 of minor changes with no notice to the dealers or owners.  This would almost be certainly be true on the emissions/ engine management  side.

    Can’t stay away eh Bampy? :038:

    I think in 14 there were some changes then as you probably know 16 year model onwards the DCT has the 3 Stage sport mode.

    Other than that I don’t know.

    Curious as to why you ask that?

    Used to own a 2012 DCT and was wondering if the software update and different sport modes are an improvement over the original bike

    I'm no expert - Hartley knows far more - but I believe there are three generations of DCT. The first you mentioned was on the original machine when launched. The second generation improved substantially on the first, allowing you to change gear with the buttons to override the auto mode, but with the system then returning to the automatic mode soon after. So dropping a gear for a corner, for example. This second generation came in in 2014, I think. Then there was a big alteration with the third generation on the 2016 model as part of a big upgrade including a hand adjustable windscreen. I'm sure there more accurate information if you use the search facility on this website.
    Just love my HONDA Crosstourer dct, and my manual TDM900.
