Description and History

The moped is a typical single-operator, two-wheel motor vehicle with special design capabilities that allow the vehicle to operate in space as well as conventionally onboard a ship or upon a planet. Unlike enclosed vehicles designed for space, the moped requires a driver equipped with a pressure suit or space suit to operate outside of an atmosphere. Nekki Basara operated a moped when travelling with his band Fire Bomber for a show aboard the Three Star Factory Ship.
