Honda VFR launched in India is the standard model without dual clutch. The dual clutch is an optional features and one will have to pay more for the dual clutch.
The Honda Dual Clutch Transmission on the VFR1200F is a computer controlled transmission system featuring a coaxial main shaft with two mutually independent clutches. The two clutches are employed independently for the odd gears (1st, 3rd, 5th) and even gears (2nd, 4th, 6th) respectively, and operate alternately to effect gear changes. For example, when changing from 1st to 2nd gear, the computer detects the up-shift and engages 2nd gear, then releases the 1st-gear clutch while engaging the 2nd-gear clutch to achieve a quick and seamless gear change.
