Is there information that I need before I buy a moped, scooter or motorcycle?
Mopeds and scooters both use small motors for propulsion. However, a moped's motor is designed to assist the rider when pedaling and provides only a portion of the power.
Scooters share all the positive traits of mopeds and none of the drawbacks. They're very fuel efficient, lightweight and easy to drive, but unlike mopeds, plenty of them have larger engines ranging from 50 cc all the way up to 850 cc.
All motorized two and three wheeled vehicle's engines are measured in cubic centimeters (cc). The larger the cc, the more powerful and faster they travel.
Note: Insurance is recommended for these vehicles, especially theft. Safety training and wearing a helmet is also important.
