Just wanted to mention how much I like this APTC clutch. The motor brake on that V2 is so strong that you can go down a mountain pass almost without using brakes. I was wondering how the **** they made downshifting so docile on that bike, until I read about the APTC clutch. Fact is that you can downshift two gears and almost let the clutch snap and you don´t feel as much as a stutter in the rear, followed by a sound motorbrake deceleration (Without this clutch that would block the rear wheel with nasty consequences when in a curve). Back torque is massively reduced after downshifting and then that feeble hand force, just: Wow! A little miracle of modern motorcycle engineering.
