Your query words produced no direct results for Germany, so maybe these classification names, as such, are not used in Germany. In Germany there are also other terms such as Moped, Mokick and Mofa.

Possibilities for Austria could be: motorcycle - small motorcycle (<50 cc) - moped (<50cc - <45km/h)

motorcycle or motorbike, moped, and motorized bicycle


Explanation:
I believe there is no single-noun term for Mofa in English, you might be best off to define it like motorcycle above 100 cc, moped below 100cc but above 50cc and moped below 50 cc.
