2009 Honda DN-01

2009 Honda DN-01

Introduction

All-new in 2008, the radical DN-01 is forging new directions in motorcycling, matching futuristic cruiser styling with the most advanced fully automatic transmission ever developed for a two-wheeled vehicle, the Human-Friendly Transmission (HFT).

A wide, low, comfortable seat (with spacious pillion accommodation) back-swept bars and wide footboards accentuate the relaxed riding position and touring capabilities. Weight is distributed evenly for unprecedented stability, especially at high speeds, while the geometry is tailor-made for pleasurable, responsive handling. Add Monoshock Pro-Arm rear suspension and impeccable braking, and you have a cool, confident control.

Every finely honed component benefits from Honda’s ingenuity, expertise and design heritage. The overall result is a motorcycle that looks stunning and performs with outstanding proficiency.
