A CVT ( continuously variable transmission ) is a type of automatic Transmission that can change through an infinite number of gears. An Automatic Transmission has 4, 5 or 6 speeds while a CVT can constantly change the relationship of car speed or engine speed. While driving a vehicle with a CVT Transmission you will not hear or feel the constant gear changes it simply raises and lowers the engine speed as needed, calling up higher engine RPM ( Revolution per minute ) for better acceleration and lower RPMs for better fuel economy while cruising. A CVT Transmission delivers more usable power, better fuel economy & and a much smoother driving experience compared to an Automatic transmission. Finally a CVT Transmission does not strictly require a clutch in some motorcycles there's no clutch.
