The 2500 rpm engage speed is the speed at which most engines begin to produce useable power. If it engaged below that engine speed the engine would get bogged down and your dead stop acceleration would be terrible.
Most any clutch can be tuned though by the use of different tensioned clutch shoe springs.
Softer springs = a lower engage rpm.
