Along with a traditional single six speed clutch setup, the 2016 Africa Twin will come with the latest version of Honda's dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

Which one would you prefer to go with?

More on Honda's latest evolution of DCT:

Furthermore, in a first for the category, the Africa Twin will feature the option of a new evolution of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) *** technology, which remains unique to Honda in motorcycling. This latest evolution of DCT has been specifically developed and programmed to provide the off-road ability with which the Africa Twin is synonymous.
Honda has sold over 35,000 DCT-equipped machines in Europe since its 2010 introduction and in 2015 more people (53% of the total) have chosen DCT over a standard manual transmission on the models (VFR1200X Crosstourer, VFR1200F, NC750X and NC750S) which feature it as an option. The Africa Twin comes with the option of a new evolution of DCT which includes specific off-road capabilities.

I thought I read somewhere that you would be able to have DCT and a manual foot gear change option combined. Best of both worlds rolled into one :)

Interested in what DCT is all about?

+1! normally I would agree with @Adventurer I don't like to jump in to new things either, but in this case I fear not and I'll tell you why. Honda is not guessing on this tranny being good for off- road use and they proved it by installing it in two different units the AT1000 and the Pioneer 1000. I'd even put my money where my mouth is and bet on RED!
