AHEAD OF THE CURVE
Honda’s finest craftsmanship that ‘Excites the World’, are 5 segment first
Segment First Honda Selectable Torque
Control (HSTC) helps in maintaining rear wheel traction by detecting
difference between front and rear wheel speeds, calculating the slip ratio and
further controlling engine torque via the fuel injection. HSTC can be turned
ON/OFF using a switch on the left side of meter. A ‘T’ indicator in the digital
display flickers when the system is engaging.
Segment First Honda Smartphone Voice
Control system (HSVCS) allows riders to remain in touch with the world
