A motorcycle clutch is typically multiplate and wet (oil) and a automobile clutch is typically a single plate and dry.

Also, the transmissions are different. A motorcyle transmission typically does not have syncho's, instead it is a sequential transmission, more like those used in serious automobile racing.

Hence, the clutch/transmission on a motorcyle and a car have very different characteristics.
