Honda?s automatic bike

Published: 14 October 2005

Honda has launched a fully automatic concept bike at the Tokyo motorcycle show, which it promises will make it to full production.

The DN-01 concept is a sports-tourer based around the Deauville v-twin 680cc engine, but Honda has taken out the standard motorbike gearbox and inserted a scooter-style continuously variable automatic system.

The rider will be able to choose between two different automatic modes - presumably one for sport and one for normal riding – and a fully manual option so the rider can choose when to change gear via the bar mounted buttons.

Although currently a concept Honda has said that it aims to put the bike on sale in the near future.
