There is no such thing as a 4-wheeled motorcycle.

It's a 4wheeler... or a car.

I concur.

3 wheels = trike...is a trike

2 wheels = motorcycle - even if it has a sidecar.

Well, since you brought it up, a motor typically does not use combustion to make its power. Our bikes all have engines, but enginecycle just doesn't sound as catchy.
