Am I right in thinking that you have a choice on whether to choose DCT or not ? Or will all Crosstourers have DCT  :087:

Yes DCT seems to be optional. It adds 10kg + to the bike weight  :084:

Been talking about DCT with some friends today. Sure an interesting feature to look at. Not sure yet if I wanted it ... found some great infos about the system as it is on the VFR 1200F, have a look at the "details" on how it works:

DCT is great when you are on the open road bit a bit** in a traffic jams.... Lots of pros and cons in this so be minful when choosing.... For me, a standard clutch control is the way to go....  :031:

.... cons of DCT:
-weight  ... +10kg that's a LOT
-price (+ <1000 Euros ? ) ... that be ok
-more bits and electronics "to fail" within the years (which i'd hate)

Well in Italy this will be:
Crosstourer standard = 14200 euros
Crosstourer DCT = 15200 euros

I tried DCT on VFR1200 and my Crosstourer, for sure, will be with DCT gear!  :031:

Hi Giovannino.... you have any idea when to expect the CrossTourer?

Why you prefer DCT? Can explain as i have not tried it before.

Thanks
