Many people claim that motorcycle, scooter and moped are one and the same vehicle.

 

However, it is unfair to make such claims without understanding vehicles.

 

In fact, both a motorcycle, a scooter and a moped, despite noticeable similarities, have significant differences from each other.

 

The modern scooter has major differences from the motorcycle.

 

Firstly, the scooter engine, and with it the gearbox, is "interlocked" with the rear wheel.

 

Secondly, the scooter is equipped with a plastic edging and has a small platform for the driver's feet.

 

Third, the wheel diameter of a scooter is significantly smaller than that of a motorcycle - from eight inches on fifty cc to fifteen on hyper models.

 

Fourth, the simple configuration and practical structure of the scooter are comprehensively adapted for the regular use of this vehicle by a novice biker. In addition, motorcycles are much heavier in weight and larger than scooters.

 

The motorcycle engine is located midway between the wheels, while the scooter engine is located closer to the rear wheel; the engine of the scooter is lower than that of the motorcycle.

Scooter
Moped

Both vehicles differ among themselves and in the amount of fuel consumed: a scooter - two liters per hundred kilometers, a motorcycle - ten liters per hundred kilometers.

 

The scooter is equipped with an automatic transmission, and the motorcycle is equipped with a mechanical one. Thus, the scooter is ahead of the motorcycle in most parameters. What about a moped?

 

Perhaps the most important structural difference between a moped and a motorcycle is the presence of pedals designed to move with the help of the physical force of the driver or the starter when the engine is activated.

 

However, a modern moped may not be equipped with a pedal drive if its maximum speed is fifty kilometers per hour, and the engine volume does not exceed fifty cubic centimeters.

 

Moped braking is done by pedaling backward, like on a bicycle, while motorcycle braking is done using a petal or disc brake.

 

The lack of a gearbox on a moped is an important difference from a motorcycle: this factor significantly reduces the price of a moped, but makes it practically unsuitable for driving on roads with steep inclines.

 

Thus, the motorcycle outperformed the moped in most of its characteristics.
