Scooter is a
motorcycle with step-through frame and a platform for the operator's feet. It has a platform for the operator's
feet or has integrated footrests, and has a step-through architecture.
The classic scooter design features a step-through frame and a flat floorboard for the rider's
feet. This design is possible because most scooter engines and drive systems are attached to the rear axle or under
the seat. Unlike a conventional motorcycle, in which the engine is mounted on the frame, most modern scooters allow
the engine to swing with the rear wheel. Most vintage scooters and some newer retro models have axle-mounted
engines with a manual transmission and the gear shift and clutch controls built into the left handlebar. Most newer
scooters use a continuously variable transmission.
Scooters usually feature bodywork, including a front leg shield and body that conceals all or
most of the mechanicals. There is often some integral storage space, either under the seat, built into the front
leg shield, or both. Most scooters have small engines, 50 cc to 400 cc with a single cylinder, although
maxi-scooters might have twin cylinder 400 to 800 cc engines.
