Features & Benefits
ES model with ESP(tm) (Electric Shift Program)
features push-button upshifting and downshifting.
The rider shifts simply and precisely with the press
of the upshift or downshift button mounted on the
left handlebar. An onboard electronic control module
(ECM) monitors information from four sensors--engine
rpm, countershaft speed, gear position and shift
spindle angle--to control the speed of the electric
shift motor's gear and clutch engagement. Gear engagement
speed varies according to rider style: The transmission
shifts more quickly when riding style turns sporty.
A neutral lockout at speeds greater than 2 mph ensures
available engine braking when descending hills.
To ensure smooth shifting, the transmission cannot
be shifted from neutral to first gear or reverse
gear at engine speeds above 3000 rpm. ESP is not
battery-dependent, operating whenever the engine
is running. Should the rider ever need to shift
manually, the Rancher(tm) ES is also equipped with
an auxiliary shift lever in the tool kit.
