In layman's terms, a Honda motorcycle equipped with E-Clutch can shift gears without having to manually control the clutch.

The Honda "E-Clutch" comes in three modes: an automatic mode that doesn't require a joystick and doesn't stall, a mode that returns to automatic control by disengaging the clutch at will, and a fully manual mode.
