    Why can't we have epicyclic gearboxes on bikes? Having three planet gears there are always two sets of teeth in contact so next to no backlash. More money? Maybe but with no force trying to separate the parallel shafts there are likely to be savings along the way.

    Sounds like the same effect as a DCT gearbox, bendy.
    Seamless changes in auto or manual. Takes a bit of brain re training to keep the throttle open when changing.
    Now, a K1600GT with DCT transmission, that would be awesome.
    Bit frightening when out of warranty though!
    Unless they bought them from Honda...
