The Japanese motorcycle maker, Suzuki is reportedly working on the new generation Hayabusa that is expected to make its debut next year. Interestingly, Suzuki has filed several patents for semi-automatic transmission in each country including Japan, the U.S. and in Germany. The new patents are credited to Hideaki Takahashi, who has a past of several patents related to Suzuki transmissions.

The new semi-automatic transmission will not be highly different when compared to a manual transmission. It will use actuators to control the clutch engagement and shifting through gears, instead of the mechanical way of gear shift. The new semi-automatic transmission will allow the rider to normally shift through the gears via foot controls, on the other hand, position of the shifter is read by a sensor which passes the information to the ECU indicating the bike to take the shift action. To keep the things interesting, the company has integrated a simulated clicking mechanism to make this transmission feel like a manual.

Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the most famous superbikes in the Indian market, with the integration of new semi-automatic transmission, the company will surely step up the level on the new bike.

Stay tuned for more updates.
