Manual and automatic transmissions for scooters, until recently there were many more options in the world of motorcycling ... But finally arrived dual-clutch changes. What are they? How do they work?
Systems double clutch They are highly developed inthe automotive world but have taken years to reachmotorcycles by typical factors: weight, space andprice.
Sling We went a little crazy a few years ago whenHe presented the DCT (Cluth Dual Transmission) Your systemdual clutch, an automatic transmission that worksAlso in sequential mode and its mechanism it is like a boxrobotized manual gearbox with a little more complexity. As in theThe result is a car faster and effective change onemanual.
He DCT Honda It is very much like a manual transmission, hassix speeds and developments are arranged in two axes,one for the even gears and the other for odd. Each axis hasa clutch so that the transition between a march and another ismuch faster.
Okay, now suppose that circulate in third clutchthe odd gears is selected that speed (isdisengaging) and of the even gears is selectedsecond or fourth depending on the speed and acceleration.If it is logical that we will move to a higher gear becauseWe are giving gas and we're moving up laps, preselect theFourth, if instead we are cutting gas and reducing thenumber of revolutions, pre-selects the second. So it is shortenedthe time when the gear shift is performed. In addition, theto have two clutches, while one begins to engage theanother is disengaging to prevent loss of thrust whilemake the change. That is, if we change to a higher gear isIt produces change but only seen in revolutionsengine keeps pulling the bike without the cuts appear in amanual gearbox to catch and release the clutch.

DCT has automatic change operation but alsoThey can make the changes manually (without a clutch, sosequential) and the conclusion is clear: Faster to changeup (almost immediately), improved performance and ease ofdriving.
