My Kathmandu Hybrid had a noisy shift at brand new. I immediately took it to my mechanic who had to tighten the gear cable and take a link out of the chain. Since then, excellent, crisp and quiet.

My wife and I have travelled many thousands of KMs on e-bikes equipped with the previous-gen Bosch mid Mount system. They have both been perfectly reliable. 
 

To avoid clunkiness when changing gear, simply back off the pedaling a bit. The assistance drops and the shift is smoother. It's called 'mechanical sympathy'.
