To the people pretending this gearbox is fine and smooth, I might advise you to try a Triumph Tiger 800, since my switch to the Brits, I did 3000Km and that is a freaking smooth and flawless gearbox, it's really in another league there's even no need of the slipper clutch to do clutchless downshifts, I've never ever experienced such an enjoyable gearbox before.

The AT is a fine bike with lots of qualities, but the gearbox is not on par with what some other manufacturers do.

Yamaha XJ6 : the one who started it all (sold)
Kawasaki Versys 650 : 1st trail and sportbike predator (sold after accident)
Yamaha FZ8 : sexiest of them all (sold )
Yamaha MT-09 : waking the hooligan in me (sold not to die...)
Africa Twin : taming the hooligan slightly
Fazer 8 : the every day jack of all tades
