I am thinking of buying a Honda big bike with dual clutch transmission, the Honda staff and the Big Wing dealership could tell me many good things about the dual clutch transmission system... but when I ask if any negative points they told me it has none.

So what are the negative points of a dual clutch transmission system?

The Honda Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) has no real mechanical disadvantage. If I really need to say something I would say that a DCT motorcycle engine is less tolerant on service schedule and engine oil.

For a regular transmission it is not that strict if you 1000 kilometers late for your service, if you have a DCT system you really need to service in time to not damage the gearbox.

How do they work on very steep hill starts as there is no way to over-rev the engine and feed in the clutch. to keep the engine at maximum torque at low speed.

The Honda DCT can be switched to manual control, and in that mode you can switch gear by the traditional foot pedal or buttons on the handlebar. In the manual mode the engine will rev as high as you want.

But even in automatic mode the engine will automatically switch back gears and rev the engine higher to provide more power.
