Scooters do have gears but unlike in bikes, we cant change the gear ratios (like we do in motorcycles). As we can’t change the Gear Ratios we cant increase the torque, we must simply bear with the torque which the engine provides. ie, in a scooter, we are always running at maximum torque. Unlike in motorcycles, scooter gearbox consists of a x’mas tree like gyro set. There will be automatic gear shift when we throttle up the scooter. That is, there will be a CVT. (Continously Variable Transmission) where the clutch engages and disengages automatically.
