"Wet clutch provides excellent durability and has excellent feathering characteristics".

Normalmente suele ser "biselado", pero aquí hace referencia a algo relacionado con el embrague.

embragado/desembragado parcial ?
Explanation:
The motorcycle’s clutch is known as a wet-disc clutch, and that permits “slipping the clutch” to help with using the motorcycle engine’s power to move around those tight turns with limited power instead of full, or no, engagement of the clutch. The term feathering the clutch conveys a sense of lightness and delicacy that’s required for low speed maneuvering. In feathering, power is delivered to the drive wheel when the clutch is neither fully engaged nor fully disengaged, and movements of the clutch lever are smooth and slight.
