It's pretty clear on Honda Powersports (USA) that the AT will be: "Offered with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a new DCT transmission with selectable on- and off-road modes, both versions have ABS standard with rear ABS on/off and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). "

"Torque control" is a curious choice of names since TC systems modulate power to the rear wheel to control slippage, or traction. Anyway, traction control on motorcycles uses the ECU (through ignition timing, fuel delivery or throttle position) to adjust the engine speed so the rear wheel is turning at the same or pre-set (per rider choice of level) amount faster, than the front wheel. The AT will probably get a three level TC (as the Crosstourer) plus OFF.

For an excellent discussion of motorcycle TC:
I would imagine Torque control is the perfect name if they're cutting ignition spark to keep wheel speeds in check.
