Actually it has, it is fitted with a powershifter which means you can change up through the gears without using the clutch or dropping the revs. It's also got a throttle blipper which allows you to change down through the gears without using the clutch. Great fun and the acceleration feels ballistic.

it looks and sounds like a fantastic bike! out of curiosity, can it be ridden on an automatic licence due to not having to use the clutch?
as you probably know, mines is a twist n go, nippy enough for me though!
my wife doesn't like me riding because she worries too much, hence why she allowed me to get my wind, one of the conditions was that I had to get rid of my scoot, but after a lot of tear shedding (mine!!) she relented and said because I love my scoot she had changed her mind...........thankfully!!  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

No, you do need a full motorcycle licence. It does have a clutch which you do need to use to pull away and stop. You can ride the bike conventionally and use the clutch all the time. I think quite a few of the Japanese manufacturers are selling fully automatic bikes. The new Honda Africa Twin and the NC700 spring to mind, you can get fully automatic versions of these bikes. I do like the big scoots, they are now very stylish and the twist and go is ideal in traffic.
