FIM Classification

This page gives you all the information about the differents records categories. You can find all the specifications about the différents bikes and divisions, in order to understand better what are the references of this sport. 

 

Category

Category 1

Motorcycles propelled by the action of one wheel in contact with the ground.

GROUP

EXPLANATION

Solo Motorcycles

(A1)

Solo Motorcycles

2-wheeled vehicles making only one (1) track on the ground, and:

 

  • Solo Motorcycles - Single (1)cylinder (according to the class capacities, up to 1000cc maximum), Division A and B
  • Solo Motorcycles - Two (2)cylinders (according to the class capacities, up to 3000cc maximum), Division A and B
  • Solo Motorcycles - Three or more (3+) cylinders (according to the class capacities, up to 3000cc maximum), Division A and B
 

Scooters

(A2)

Scooters A2 – CVT type/ A2 MGS type

A scooter is a motorised 2-wheeled vehicle produced in large quantities by the original manufacturer with a minimum of 2000 units registered by the manufacturer and found in the manufacturers' and dealers' catalogues, available for the public market.

 

Scooter specification: A scooter must have its crankcase/ swing-arm constructed as one single, rigid unit. Its transmission must be by a continuous variation transmission (A2-CVT), or originally fitted with a manually operated gear selector (A2-MGS).

 

  • Prototypes are not permitted.
  • Ergonomics: The seat and handlebar are designed for an erect position of the rider’s upper body.
  • The minimum handlebar width: 550 mm.
  • The seat shall have room for the rider and passenger.
  • The area in front of the rider’s seat shall have the typical scooter characteristic that is an ‘open’ space, or step-thru space.
  • The minimum required difference in height measured between the bottom of the seat and the lowest part of this step-thru space shall be 100 mm.
  • The area in front of the seat: The rider’s legs and feet shall be protected by a leg shield with a minimum width of 400 mm.
  • Floor (foot) boards minimum length: 350 mm
  • Maximum rear wheel rim diameter: 16’’
 

Automatic 50 cc (A3)

Automatic 50 cc / Moped 50 cc

Motorcycles driven by an engine capacity of up to 50 cc and having an automatic transmission

Sidecar

(B1)

Motorcycles with a Sidecar

Vehicles with three (3) wheels, making two (2) tracks on the ground, consisting of a motorcycle making one track, and a Sidecar for a passenger making the other.

 

Permanent Sidecar

(B2)

Vehicles with a permanent Sidecar

Vehicles with three (3) wheels making two (2) or three (3) tracks on the ground in the direction of forward travel, with a permanently attached Sidecar forming a complete integral unit.

If three tracks are made, the centre-line of the two tracks made by the motorcycle wheels must not be more than 75 mm apart. A track is determined by the longitudinal centre-line of each of the vehicle's wheels in the direction of forward travel.

A passenger may not be carried. A ballast of 60 kg must be securely fixed to the Sidecar.

 

Cycle-cars

(B3)

Cycle-cars (FW or RW)

3-wheeled vehicles making three tracks on the ground forming a complete integral unit and having accommodation for a rider and a passenger.

A cycle-car is a motorcycle with 3 wheels differing from a Sidecar in that 2 of the wheels are mounted on the same geometric horizontal axis. These may be on the front (FW) or rear (RW) of the vehicle and shall ensure the stability of the vehicle.

The ‘space’ for a passenger can be by the side of the rider but not necessarily in the same frontal alignment. It can also be placed behind the rider. A passenger may not be carried. A ballast of 60 kg must be securely fixed to the Sidecar.

Steering must be by handlebars with a minimum length of 500mm, or by a wheel with a minimum diameter of 300mm.

If bodywork does not enclose the wheels, they must be protected by mudguards.
