Automatic Motorcycle? - August 7, 2007, 11:16 AM

Does anyone know of any Automatic Motorcycles? (NOT SCOOTERS)

If you know of any please post up the name or website where I can get more information about it.

No this is not for me...I'm looking for information for my work.

Search for 'hondamatic' - there were a few bikes Honda made with these automatic transmissions (I think they were all 2-speeds).

There is a local company that builds a Harley style V-Twin in automatic.
I can't think of the name -- hopefully Google knows it.

Riddley also makes automatic transmission bikes

Their bikes:

Would make sense -- with some button shifters to override when you want to.

umm I doubt people would buy it.... the hondamatic was tried with the very popular cb750 and it was NOT a good seller... The fjr with it's version is only bought by a very few - mainly older/diabled folks - it's more of a niche bike... I know I wouldn't get one....

I know that there is a drag kit that will allow you to shift with a button - but I think it's a speed shift and will kill whatever clutch you have and/or burnout transmissions sooner - etc...

Lastly I seem to think the CVT transmissions are larger (ie add weight) and require allot of juice, and bikes have no where near the same output of bikes - but I might have heard it wrong...

i don't know bout most folks - but I don't buy a sports car with a CVT - I get the manual... etc.... I might consider it in a commuter car, mabye.. If you don't like to shift much for commuting - get a big vtwin... they will go in just about any gear...

I was just thinking about how nice it is to drive my girlfriends Altima and to constantly be at peak horsepower and torque when accelerating. It goes to redline and stays there unless you let off.

errr.. i may have mispoke... I didn't mean to imply that it's a bad idea... I think that more people buy sportsbikes to get a sport style machine/fix... Thus, something that relegates a bike to just another means of tranportation, would NOT sell in the same numbers as sportsbikes with the regular manual transmission...

I think there would be more people riding if they could purchase an automatic motorcycle. I have several friends, both women and men, who say that they can't drive a manual tranny car and wouldn't even try a motorbike.

Not everyone needs to ride a sportbike ... so if someone wants an auto trans bike I say good for them.
