Isn't motor_vehicle used for this? In my experience, the English term
'motor vehicle' does not include sub-motorcycle vehicles, such as
motorized bicycles. For example, Florida statutes define
MOTOR VEHICLE.—Any self-propelled vehicle not operated upon rails or
guideway, but not including any bicycle, motorized scooter, electric
personal assistive mobility device, or moped.
I guess the one difference between this and his change to motorcar is
that the latter doesn't include motorcycles. But in the rare case that
these are treated differently, one could use motor_vehicle=yes
