According to Wikipedia, a motorcycle is a two or three-wheeled motor vehicle. Within this definition, we can distinguish between a traditional motorcycle and a motor scooter. A motorcyclist typically straddles the seat and frame and places their feet on footpegs, where a motor scooter rider typically rides with knees together and places their feet on a central floorboard located in front of the seat.
Motorcycle and motor scooter design varies greatly to suit a range of different purposes: long-distance travel, commuting, cruising, sport, including racing, and off-road riding.
There are three major types of motorcycle: street, off-road, and dual purpose. Within these types, there are many sub-types of motorcycles for different purposes. There are also highly tuned racing versions of each type, such as street bikes tuned for road racing, or dirt bikes set up for motocross, or enduro competitions.
Dual-purpose machines like the dual-sport or adventure bike models are made to go off-road but include features to make them legal and comfortable on the street as well.
