Classification of motorcycles

Apr 14, 2020

For the classification of motorcycles, different countries have different classification methods. According to speed and weight, motorcycles are divided into two categories: dual-purpose motorcycles and motorcycles. There are basically two classification methods for Chinese motorcycles: one is divided into mopeds and motorcycles according to displacement and maximum design speed. The working volume of the moped engine does not exceed 50 milliliters, and the maximum design speed is not greater than 50 kilometers per hour. Motorcycle refers to a two-wheel or three-wheel motorcycle with an engine working volume greater than 50 milliliters and a maximum design speed of more than 50 kilometers per hour. The other is divided into two categories: two-wheeler, side tricycle and regular tricycle according to the number and position of wheels.

It is generally customary to classify according to usage, structure, engine type and working volume. If it is only used for short-distance travel tools in the city, the miniature motorcycle or moped with a compact structure of not more than 50 kilometers per hour is selected. It is necessary to travel between urban and rural areas frequently and can ride two people. It is advisable to use an ordinary motorcycle with an engine working volume of 125 to 250 ml. If the road conditions are poor, high-speed driving or general competition is required, use off-road motorcycles.
