    2020 DCT top gear

    Took my new Crosstourer DCT out for its first proper ride today and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant .

    I have a question though. In sport 3 setting, I couldn't get the bike to select 6th regardless of speed. (Sport 2 kicks 6th gear in about 70 mph)
    So I am wondering, does anyone know what speed the bike will select 6th gear in the sport 3 setting?

    Obviously this will be manufacturers info or track data, as just like me, I'm sure nobody here ever breaks the speed limits.  :001:

    Any info gratefully received, thanks.

    Hi Lifeboat,
    My (older) DCT does not use the 6th gear in sports mode.
    When I drive in 6 in “ normal” drive setting and switch to  sport,  gear changes to 5.

    (BTW: I visited Wales and Llandudno several years ago with my bike: beautiful in all aspects !!)

    I guess like me, you weren't going fast enough for it to engage.
    Which brings me back to my original question.  :027:
