Mobylettes share almost entirely the same engine.  The bottom end, cylinder, head, and exhaust are common to most engines.  Differences lie in the ignition system (6 volt versus 12 volt), the drive system (variator vs. clutch and single speed), and the intake system.  The intake system usually consists of a [[Gurtner]] carburetor and appropriately-sized intake manifold, which differ by model.  Larger [[Converting from stock Gurtner AR carburetor to a Dellorto SHA carburetor | Dellorto carburetors]] are preffered as an after-market performance add-on.  [[Autisa]], [[Airsal]] and [[Polini]] make [[speed kit|70cc kits]] for Mobylettes, the latter requiring the Polini Motobecane racing bottom end.

The Mobylette had recently enjoyed a revival of sorts. Nino Quincampoix, the quirky male lead of the hit film "Amelie," rode one in his cross-Paris hunts for Amelie Poulain, the dotty waitress with a heart of gold.nThe Mobylette was also featured on a set of stamps released by the national post office in March, along with the Concorde jet, TGV high-speed trains, the France ocean liner and the 2CV, the car Citroen stopped producing in 1990. About 400,000 people voted to include the Mobylette in the series.
