If they don't qualify for the "bicycle" label, what are they?

Asked by flo (12907points) August 13th, 2019

What does a 2 wheeler have to have and not have, in order to qualify for that label? Edited to remove “electrical, tranditional”.

Two wheels.

Two independent axles

It has to have two wheels on separate axles (bi-), and it must be powered through a repetitive motion (the cycle).

Things that don’t meet that are called other things, like tricycle, scooter, moped, motorcycle.

I’ve seen/heard something else being labeled (in traditional media, but I’m sure it’s in online as well) as “e-bicycle”, or a “scooter”, when it’s neither. And it’s not a moped, or a motorcyle, or a tricycle. So, what is it, that’s being mislabled? Edited for typo.
