What are the similarities and differences between these two. I've always wondered what it would be like to drive a car with either the BMW or Audi System. Does the BMW Sequential Manual Gearbox or Audi Dynamic Shift Gearbox require a clutch?
I know that the Audi is supposed to be the world's fastest production gearbox (in terms of upshift speed). How does the Sportbike gearbox compare shifting w/ or w/o the clutch.
And I haven't read too many articles regarding sportbike gearbox updates. Are we still generally using transmission technology from the 80's/90's?
This site is great for picking up info :thumbsup

I know the BMW is a true manual transmission with an electronic, computer-controlled clutch. Even though, I doubt any is as fast as a proper, clutchless upshift on a bike. Do it right and it is almost instantaneous.

I wasnt aware of any other tiptronic gearboxes besides the BMW and Audi... maybe Ferrari....

Most tiptronic gear boxes are just automatics that let you control when it shifts... which is completely different.

I've heard the Audi box is supposed to be pretty revolutionary as it can actually be in 2 gears at one time. Sorta just switches between the two when it's time for a shift rather then moving everything. Or something like that...
