Last I checked there were not many negative reviews of the auto in the VFR (other than cost).
From what I read if there wasn't a huge price premium I would sport that DCT in a heartbeat but then again I am a sucker for technology.
From what I read it works well, but costs much $, and adds weight. I just don't know who is asking for it, who wants it, and last of all who has bought a VFR1200 with auto?
I've only seen three VFR1200 on the road, don't know if any or all were autos.
