THE HISTORY OF KLIKTRONIC
Introduced in 1997 after 18 months of development work the Kliktronic system is the result
of a design partnership between Bob Sirett and Keith Holland. Both keen bikers, they have been involved in Engineering
and Electrical development work, between them they have over 60 years of experience. gallery pages
The system was originally designed to overcome a disability problem, Bob's son Carl was paralysed in a motorcycle accident, determined to get back on a bike the system gave him a new found freedom which has now benefited many hundreds of disabled riders who never thought they would ride again. The simple push button gearshift format makes fitting the unit fairly straightforward on virtually any machine see the
gallery pagesfor some examples.
The unit has also become very popular with the racing world, it is quicker (typically 50
milliseconds) and more consistent than a manual shift and has therefore found favour amongst racing and track day
riders - the system is also particularly well suited to
Using their own engineering facilities they are constantly improving and developing the system. Currently the system is in its MK.VI version - much smaller, lighter, faster and more powerful than the earlier versions. All components used are of the highest quality, all electrical assembly work is carried out in house ensuring that the highest standards are maintained - each unit undergoes a rigorous test procedure at various stages of manufacture. Go to our Technical page to see the kit components in detail.

Also available is the Techtronics ignition interrupt system which enables full-throttle clutchless push-button
upchanges - a particular advantage in competitive use. This has further been
enhanced by a ground breaking new development - a clutchless downshift module
For UK based clients there is an in house fitting service available, along with approved fitting centres across the country. Recently established in the USA, Australia, The Netherlands, France & Denmark - there is now a growing network of worldwide distributors - see our links page for details.
Kliktronic Ltd continues to work in partnership with bike manufacturers, motor research establishments, racing teams, disabled bikers organisations and individuals seeking to improve and develop the system to cater for specialist requirements. As the 'original' motorcycle push-button gearshift system, we have seen in the recent past various 'copies' of our system - however, none come close in terms of quality, reliability, performance and value - beware of imitations!
