    Trim or no Trim?

    I’m curious why some Crosstourers have a plastic trim piece (circled in yellow in the photo below) but my 2017 manual transmission model does not.  Is this a trim piece only on DCT models?  Another explanation?  Why would Honda only design a trim piece to cover this area on certain bikes? 



    Here is what no trim piece in this area looks like on my bike:

    Trim is only on dct  models.  A foot pedal gear change is also available,  and can be fitted to dct model, and used instead of the manual switch on handle bars.

    i wonder why Honda engineers spec’d a cover in that area only for the DCT bikes.  Is there an especially delicate DCT component that it protects or is it covering something for aesthetic reasons on DCT bikes?
