You must have checked the slang definition.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Look up motor in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.Motor usually refers to the electric motor, a machine that converts electricity into a mechanical motion:
Servo motor, it is used in robots. It also has an inbuilt rotation sensor
AC motor, a machine using alternating current electricity
Synchronous motor
Induction motor
Electrostatic motor, type of electric motor based on the attraction and repulsion of electric charge
Internal fan-cooled electric motor
Other uses:

Molecular motors, the agents of movement in living organisms
Synthetic molecular motors
Pneumatic motor, a machine that converts the energy of compressed air into mechanical motion
Hydraulic motor, a machine that converts the energy of pressurized liquid flow into mechanical motion
Nanomotor
Actuator, a mechanical device for moving or controlling a mechanism or system
Motor system, the physiological system that is responsible for physical movement
Motor neuron, neurons that originate in the spinal cord and synapse with muscle fibers
Motor skill, the ability of an organism to use the motor system effectively
The Motors, a British music group
Motor language, an extinct language of Siberia

Also from Wikapedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For other uses, see Engine (disambiguation).
An engine whose purpose is to produce kinetic energy output from a fuel source is called a prime mover; alternatively, a motor is a device which produces kinetic energy from other forms of energy (such as electricity, a flow of hydraulic fluid or compressed air).

I rest my case.

I don't see how they are able to sell those in the states. It's got four sheels, so legally it's a car. three or less and they are considered motorcycles by the gov't. Does that mean any yahoo can take his 4 wheeler and make it street legal?

So why can we buy this, but not the hundreds of economy cars produced and sold around the world that don't meet our crash standards?

I'm not saying I want things the way they are, but why does this POS make it to our shores, but lots of eye candy sports cars don't due to our regs?
