    It seems to me that I read somewhere that the foot brake can be modified to be manual with the DCT version. Did anyone have any knowledge about this or I am poorly informed.

    Do you mean adding a brake lever, if so then there is a thread on here somewhere of someone who is tackling the conversion. I think this is the one; https://www.crosstourer.com/index.php/topic,9231.0.html

    If your right arm is long enough, you could just reach down there and operate it manually.  Probably not recommended, though. </s>
