New to motorcycling? Or been riding bikes for years but just never knew what some of those abbreviations we use in our Motorcycle brochure means?
Well look no further & check our ultimate guide to Honda Motorcycling Technology:
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) is an automated clutch and shift operation system that retains the direct acceleration feel of a manual transmission with the ease of use of an automatic. It basically allows you to forget about the gear changes and concentrate on steering, turning, accelerating and enjoying your trip.
Anti-Locking Braking System reduces braking pressure by monitoring the wheel speed, preventing the wheels from locking up.
The Honda Electronic Steering Dampener minimises sudden steering changes at high speeds for enhanced riding ease and comfort.
Programmed Fuel Injection is a map-type computerised system that maintains strong power and responsive performance in
If the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system senses an imminent loss of rear wheel traction it reduces torque to allow the tyre to grip.
The Combined Brake System actuates both front and rear brakes when the rear brake pedal (or lever) is engaged, for a smooth and confident balance of braking control.
The Idle Stop System automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle and restarts it instantly with a twist of the throttle, helping to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
The Honda Ignition Security system only allows the bike to be started by its original encoded keys to effectively protect against theft.
LED lights featured on Honda are a brighter and more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, with no time delay and a longer life.
V-Matic Transmission is a belt-converter transmission with advanced three-stage operation provides seamless shifting throughout a wide range of speeds delivered with twist-and-go ease.
Öhlins Electronic Control Suspension is a Öhlins Objective Based Tuning Interface adjusts both the compression and rebound damping force of the front fork and rear shock.
Big Piston Fork
Offers more sensitive damping than a conventional fork, improving control in a wide range of riding situations.
Honda Evolutional Catalysing System
Oxygen-sensing system maintains an optimal air/fuel mixture for the most effective catalytic reduction of exhaust emissions.
This innovative technology improves both convenience and security. As long as your key is in your pocket or bag, you can release the seat and start the engine. with the press of a button
Complies with latest EURO 4 emissions regulations.
Honda Multi-Action System
Cartridge-type front fork and rear damper design ensures a confident balance of compliant damping and precise handling.
Triggered by a switch on the instrument panel, G Mode improves traction and machine control by reducing clutch slip during gear changes. Only available on the X-ADV & Africa Twin in 2018 range.
Available on Automatic (DCT) bikes, S- for Sport is a more relaxed driving style.
Available on Automatic (DCT) bikes, D – for Drive is for relaxed city and motorway driving.
Pro-link rear Suspension
Monoshock rear suspension utilises a triangular linkage system to progressively increase damping force through range of rear swingarm movement.
Showa Dual Bending Valve forks improve ride comfort and handling by delivering proportional rebound damping with firmer compression damping.
And that’s a wrap! As you can see our Honda Motorcycles are dripping with the latest technology. If you want to get your hands on any of our Honda Motorcycles you can visit one of our Honda Authorised Motorcycle Dealerships.
