"A five-speed manual transmission turns the rear wheel via chain drive"

Do they make an automatic transmission for a motorcycle? (other than scooters)

A little off topic but yes IIRC Ridley made a motorcycle that had an automatic trans. And then there is the Rekluse clutch but that just make it clutchless.

Yes. Aprilia and Honda have one. Mana 850 and dn-01 I believe are the models. Also a few other less know companies.

I think what they are trying to tell you is that its a 5 speed as opposed to a 6 speed, which many bikes are, and as mentioned, there are a couple automatics out there.
There are also other types of final drives besides chain as well.
Thats a sweet looking bike but I dont think it looks enough like its namesake (The Great Escape) bike. They need to at least put a number plate on the front fender.
