Hi guys, just sharing my experience here.
I recently bought a 2018 ATAS DCT, I use the bike for commuting and also for recreation.
Motoz Tractionator GPS are my tyres of choice (50/50 tyres).
I have OEM engine crash bars and plate. OEM hand guards.
Last weekend I tried the bike off road for the fist time.
When going up a hill with loose gravel, the DCT didn't help me much even in Gravel mode or using the G button.
The auto transmission changed gears when we were climbing and it felt strange, it has power but I prefer to control the compression and momentum.
The traction control reduced the power delivery , making me loose momentum.
The bike never stopped, never stalled though, I just felt as if I wasn't in control and the power was going somewhere else.
After few attempts with different settings, I found that if you want to do some off road that includes lose gravel or you need traction or you are in technical territory, turn the DCT to manual (and change your gears properly ) and turn the Traction Control Off. After that, it was a very pleasant ride. Plenty of power and easy to control.
My only other issue (due the lack of clutch to disengage the engine) was emergency breaking. Muscle memory makes me grab the front brake, clutch and press the rear brake (in that order). I never notice this before but I seems to keep the RPM at a higher level when performing an emergency brake. It does not matter when the clutch is disengaged, but when there is no clutch, the rear wheel is pushing and the front brake is stopping, you can imaging how this ended.
So now I need to train emergency braking with no clutch until it's a reflect.
Other than that I love the bike.
