I can't stand hydraulic clutches personally,but my Yamaha has one and I make do with it. It's not near as bad as the clutch on a mid 90's GSXR a friend of mine used to have. His was either in or out almost like direct drive and it sucked. I would change my over to cable it in a New York minute if I had the funds.
Both hybrid & likebikes are right.
They also save some wear and tear on the clutch,because it's harder to slip them.
The manufactures like that idea.
