Starting your limited-speed motorcycle, or moped
 

Most modern limited-speed motorcycles have a type of automatic transmission called a continuously variable transmission, and start automatically when you turn the ignition key. Most mopeds are started by pedalling first, then turning the ignition key. You must consult your operator’s manual and learn the proper starting technique for your vehicle.
