Honda DN-01: powerful and reliable motorcycle with innovative transmission
The opinion that the conceptual bike Honda DN-01and will remain a concept, formed back in 2005, after showing a motorcycle at the Tokyo Auto Show. Distrust was caused by promises of high characteristics of the motorcycle due to the use of a continuously variable transmission and innovative technologies in the production of the main components of the unit, which should have been integrated into the sports bikes of this series.
Although at that time it seemed unrealizable, butexperts from the company Honda, through a long and hard work, came to the goal. They were able to develop a unique working model DN-01 for batch production, which reflected the promised superior performance and style from the concept presented before them.
Honda DN 01 was constantly in the centerattention, almost from its very appearance, and causes a genuine interest to this day. If you look closely at the power of the V-shaped two-cylinder engine, as well as solid seventeen-inch wheels and an elongated low case, then we see a full-fledged motorcycle. But if you take into account the lack of gearbox and clutch, as well as the extraordinary ease in handling, then, by these and some other features, the Honda DN-1 can be attributed to some unusual variant of a super-powerful scooter.
Nevertheless, the Honda DN-01 is a revolutionary oneits kind, a two-wheeled vehicle. In it for the first time in the history of the existence of motorcycles was applied the most advanced, completely automatic gearbox.
Now, thanks to the fully automatic gearbox, the driver of the motorcycle no longer needs to be distracted to switch gears, and this in turn minimizes all possible errors.
Long trips behind the wheel of thisThe sports bike becomes not only safe, but also bringing pleasure from driving. This model of the motorcycle is considered more suitable for a comfortable ride than any other motorcycle of this configuration.
The ability of a motorcycle to instantly adaptto the slightest changes in road conditions, became possible thanks to the innovative transmission, the creation of which the engineers of the company Honda took almost 20 years.
A lot of time was spent on improvingdeveloped transmission. The novelty, which received the designation HFT (Human-Friendly Transmission), turned into a kind of "bridge of friendship", overcoming the differences between powerful motorcycles with their usual transmissions, and scooters with their inherent smoothness and ease of control.
Thus, the management of a sports motorcycleThe new generation Honda DN-01 with an innovative automatic transmission, which provides the same power and acceleration to the bike as in a motorcycle with a manual transmission, is simply fascinating.
And I must say that such a development allowsthe pilot simply does not pay attention to the process of controlling the motorcycle, because the transmission of the new generation will do everything for it, providing a smooth ride and uncontrollable power, which will make you feel like controlling the aircraft on two wheels.
