FOUR OR FIVE SPEED

BIKE (UK) - - THE DEALER -

The Ep80/90-oiled five-speed gear­box was in­tro­duced with the Sixty5 model Bul­let in 2003 and was a big im­prove­ment over the ear­lier four-speed Al­bion box. The four-speed gives a slow change thanks to a long lever, whereas the five gives much more of a Ja­panese feel. It was de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Cran­field Uni­ver­sity in the UK. The four-speed does fea­ture a neu­tral fin­der, though. Pull the clutch, press down with your heel on a lever and you’ll be re­turned to neu­tral from any gear.
