Thanks to the continuously variable transmission, the operator can continuously vary the speed and direction of the machine using the EasyRider motorcycle rotating knob on the handlebar.

This means an unlimited amount of gears are available for all operating needs.

Specific technical features such as:

  • cascade reduction units of gears in oil bath
  • steering clutches with combined brake control (WS)

they facilitate manoeuvrability and increase adherence even in the steepest conditions.
