Scooters

The scooter category, for the most part, uses a distinct drivetrain that puts it apart from the rest of bikedom: the swing-mount drive. It uses the engine and a constantly-variable transmission as stressed units that replace the swingarm you'd find on a motorcycle. Many use an underframe as the main structure with sheet metal body panels, but some of the top-end machines have a stressed-skin monocoque structure instead. Displacement can range from 50 cc at the bottom end all the way up to around 700 cc for a maxi-scooter. Scooters can be set up for basic transportation, commercial use or even touring with windscreen and top case. (Piaggio/Vespa, BMW C 650 GT, Suzuki Burgman.)
