Dual Clutch Transmission
Honda Motor Co. was established in 1948 by the innovator Soichiro Honda and in 1959, Saracakis Group of Companies started selling Japanese motorcycles in the Greek market.
Soichiro Honda was always dreaming of the future, and at the same time he was creating it. As he dedicated the rest of his life to making his dream a reality, the phrase “The Power of Dreams” was established as the brand’s slogan.
In 1949, the first fully-fledged motorcycle – designed and engineered by Honda – was developed from scratch and it was appropriately named the “Dream” D-type.
During its long-standing history and its successful co-operation with Saracakis Group of Companies, as the official Importer – Distributor of Honda motorcycles in Greece, the company is a market leader, while it the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, reaching a production of 400 million two-wheelers.
The wide range of Honda Motorcycles models available for the Greek market, with an engine capacity from 110 to 1800cc, can satisfy all sorts of needs and preferences. All models are distinguished for their distinctive design, outstanding quality and reliability, their state-of-the-art technologies, the advanced safety systems and their excellent performance and driveability.
Honda has always been a company that strives to exceed the conventional standards of a motorcycle, implementing a wide range of innovative technologies. Such examples are the development of the first motorcycle airbag system, the first Combined ABS (C-ABS) for superbikes and of course the unique Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
DCT is a technology milestone that is a testament of Honda’s technological leadership. It was introduced in 2010 and since then, more than 140.000 bikes equipped with DCT have been sold in Europe.
DCT stands for Dual Clutch Transmission. There is no need to squeeze a clutch lever or select gears with your left foot. With a DCT-equipped Honda, the riders enjoy every journey in safety and experience a better feeling of freedom, since they don’t have to bother changing gears.
This technology is an exclusive feature of Ηonda bikes and constitutes a serious technological edge over its competitors.
Honda’s racing heritage is amazingly rich and victorious with numerous entries and wins at motorcycle races all over the world, while it is worth noting its dominant presence in MotoGP World Championship. As such, Saracakis Group of Companies maintains its presence in motorcycle racing in Greece, sponsoring contestants at different racing classes.
