SEAM­LESS GEAR­BOX R1?

Performance Bikes (UK) - - MONTH IN BIKES -

You can’t read too much into man­u­fac­turer patents; they’ll nail down any idea worth nick­ing. But we hope Yamaha’s re­cent patent, show­ing a seam­less Mo­toGP-style trans­mis­sion in a road bike, will go some­where. It has a nor­mal sin­gle clutch, but gear/shaft de­sign al­lows an over­lap of gear en­gage­ment to en­sure there’s no let-up in drive.
