    Clutchless Sport Shift system

    The Sport Shift (SS) system is similar to the design used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The left paddle controls down shifts, while the right paddle controls up shifts, giving you the ability to power rapidly through the 5-speed gearbox using only your fingertips!

    Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)

    The intelligent Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) is the key to the Sport Shift system. Developed from the high tech design used on Yamaha’s Sport Touring motorcycles, the sophisticated YCC-S monitors a series of sensors and instantaneously disengages and engages the clutch when required to give seamless acceleration.

    Launch control system

    The launch system (LS) allows you to accelerate from a standstill and power through the 5-speed transmission at full throttle where conditions permit. Initiated by pulling back both paddles simultaneously while holding the footbrake, this YCC-S controlled system can be launched by releasing the brake followed by both paddles.

    Auto shift down and engine brake control

    For added convenience this high performance SxS is equipped with an auto down shift control that selects a low gear when the vehicle comes to a stop, preventing stalling. And when coasting downhill with the throttle and brakes off, the engine brake control automatically modulates the clutch to keep the speed to around 10 km/h.
