An icon of modern motorcycle engineering, the 2013 VFR1200FA DCT brings the latest Honda technologies to the street, and this model's most important feature is obviously the Dual Clutch Transmission. This transmission can be set up for manual "pad" shifting, or can be allowed to shift gears on its own accord.

Dual riding modes are available, as well. The D-mode is a mapping for relaxed, casual rides, bringing a nifty all-round-purpose feel to the VFR1200FA DCT. However, if you feel that you need some canyon-carving thrills, just switch to the S-mode and prepare to hold on to the bars.
