I don't know....moped, scooter....it is a 250cc bike, no? If anything a
250cc motorcycle gets better mileage than a 250 scooter due to
better aerodynamics. I don't mean to be nit picky but if the object is green
transportation then isn't a low cc the measure of that, a bicycle being the
greenest at 0 cc? 250cc is better than 500cc I guess.
 I don't mean to put a negative light on something that is clearly worth
doing and will benefit the planet. Maybe I'm getting stuck on small details?
