it came to my mind two options why this shifter was enginered this way:
1) In a event of a crash where the throttle is active after the fall, this transference of force from floor to the rod, would disengage the mechanism avoiding an uncontrolled behaviour
2) transference of force to a small part would avoid damage to the clutch system as a whole.
exhibit a:. i had a crash on thursday. the bike went to left side and after sliding 20m it didnt turn off. i turned it off manually after recovering my head, 10-15 min
exhibit b.: on the shop we started with lever pressed as normally to check it. we are not able to select gear as supposed. however a gear is selected because the bike starts to move forward probably 3rd.
rock & roll baby
been there, done that.
