First off, should we call the non-DCT a manual or clutched. I read somewhere the DCT is a manual transmission that shifts itself (seems to defy the definition of manual). Obviously, the DCT is clutched as well... twofold.
My dealer ordered the non-DCT version for their first 2018 model even after I went into the shop several times remarking that I wanted the DCT AS. I went to the boat/motorcycle show where I live and told the same dealer there that I wanted the DCT AS. But typically dealers have their excuses.... they already had 2 DCT bikes on the floor and the guy who orders the bikes isn't on the floor but up in an office somewhere with no communication to the sales team. So they set out to find one in my area only to find out that all the DCTs had been presold. Hence I'm still waiting for mine for a couple weeks. I heard somewhere that the DCT was outselling the non-DCT 3/1. ??
