What is a Scooter, Moped or Motorcycle?
- Apr 28, 2018 -


The engine of the motorcycle is installed in the middle of the frame, and there is an oil tank on it. The rider sits on the engine and the tank is in front. Motorcycle wheels are usually larger than small scooters (more than 16 "diameter), and the other is that the motorcycle engine is mounted on the frame, and the scooter is usually part of the rear suspension. When the motorcycle's rear wheel is lifted, the engine stays stationary, and when the rear wheel of the minitype motorcycle rises and falls, the entire engine and gearbox rise and fall.


Now, 99% of the scooters have "CVT" gearboxes, which means you don't have a clutch to control, and you don't have to change the gear. 99% of the motorcycles are equipped with a manual clutch and you have to shift the gear manually (with the left foot). This also means that 99% of the motorcycles use the left rear wheel brake, while 99% of the motorcycles use the right rear foot brake. Although there are also some manual motorcycles and several motorcycles, they are exceptions, rather than rules.

These differences lead to better acceleration and high speed control for motorcycles, but small motorcycles are usually more maneuverable at low speeds and are easier to ride, especially for novice.


Scooters usually have a small engine, from 50cc to 250cc, although there are 400cc and even 800cc scooters, so the size of the engine does not define them. Although most of the speed is limited, a motorbike with a larger engine can be more than 100 miles per hour and can be cruising easily on the highway, so the speed is not an obvious feature.
