Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

You tell me...What is the greatest common factor here between the two...?? hmmm... and i thought "I" was a noob... here is a hint... one has pedals from the factory and the other clearly does not.. (edited)

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

Yikes. Negatory. How do you plan to get home when your scooter breaks down?

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

Damn i got Trolled.

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

Its just a reason for people to hate each other.

Scooters, mopeds, motos, or even pocket rockets. Ride what ever is fun and to hell with the rest.

If you hate scooters with a passion, feel free to have an aneurism over this...

"SCooTER trasH!!!" you might want to yell, but look closer, folding floor boards with what underneath? PEDALS.

In a couple of the MOPED newspapers they use to run ads where there would be one with the floor boards down sitting next to one with the floor boards up and it said...

"Its a moped!

Its a scooter!

Its a moped!

Its a scooter!"

Who cares, just ride.

Not the same, however I don't have a problem with them like some folks do.

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

they think theyre the same because in a lot of states they are clumped together by the law because of similar engine size / capabilities

So far it seems to me like this is like a white guy going into a black jazz club. sure when you enter everyone will look over at you and maybe even wisper to friends, but if you have a jazz spirit, your cool.

now replace jazz with moped

eg honda express, those yamaha things.

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

here's the difference, when I ride my mopeds I get positive comments and feedback and people asking where can I get one.

when I ride a scooter, I get treated like shit and people try and kill me.

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

if you really wanna get weird, check out a derbi gp1

looks to me like the frame is most similar to a sportbike,

motor looks like a scooter,

but where the rear wheel should attach is a sprocket that chain drives the rear

Re: Scooters and Mopeds are the same.

derbi's often pushed for chain drive to give the option to regear, and also keep a really solid more traditional swingarm. it's great.

it's funny too approaching this topic from the other direction, vespa/scooter kids get equally or more pissed off when their bikes get referred to as "mopeds"
