The optional Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) automatic gearbox adds 10 kg to the weight. One clutch handles 1st / 3rd / 5th while the other handles 2nd / 4th / 6th then the clutch not currently engaged gets the next gear ready for a really quick change.
There are two automatic modes, one a bit sportier, or the rider can pop it in manual mode and shift using buttons on the handlebar. It will even revert back to automatic if needed and blip the throttle when automatically changing down.
As with Honda's other C-ABS systems the rear brake lever also operates the third pin in the front calipers. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
Accessories include a centre stand, colour coded 29 litre panniers, 31 litre top box, 3 position screen extender, 25 mm lower seat, 3 level heated grips and satnav.
