Honda DN-01 650 CC Automatic.


It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen on two wheels. And for good reason: Honda’s stunning new “650cc DN-01” is in a class of its own—the world’s first crossover bike. Its styling and seating position alone set it completely apart, showing influence from the world of our sportbikes, sport touring machines, and cruisers. But underneath that bodywork the DN-01 is even more revolutionary, offering Honda’s radical new Human Friendly Transmission. Yes, it’s an automatic—but an automatic unlike anything you’ve ever seen. You can shift it into six preset ratios, or you can let it function as a stepless, no-shifting Constantly Variable Transmission, or CVT. The DN-01 is a perfect choice if you’re looking to get into motorcycling, if you’re a long-time rider who wants to be on the most cutting-edge bike out there, or if you’re just looking for something completely different. This bike is going to turn heads like no other for a while to come. By simply swopping the throttle over from right to left this could be ridden by someone with only the use of their left hand, well we will just have to see what Father Christmas brings me.
