3.12 Motorcycle Classification by Type
3.12.1 introduction: The purpose of this classification is to describe the type of motorcycle involved in a motor vehicle crash.
3.12.2 categories: Categories of motorcycle include:
• Large motorcycle (See 18.104.22.168)
• Motor-driven cycle (See 22.214.171.124)
• Autocycle (See 126.96.36.199)
• Speed-limited motor-driven cycle (See 188.8.131.52)
Moped (See 184.108.40.206)
Other speed-limited motor-driven cycle

3.12.3 general: Motorcycles include a broad range of transport devices. To support traffic safety programs, it is desirable that motor vehicle crash records permit distinction at least between large motorcycles and motor-driven cycles. Where distinctive license plates are used for motor-driven cycles, speed-limited motor-driven cycles, or mopeds, they facilitate accurate identification of these vehicles.
