    Underbone refers to a type of motorcycle design or frame structure where the engine and other components are mounted underneath the main frame. This design is commonly used in small to medium-sized motorcycles, characterized by their compact and lightweight structure.

They are widely popular in countries throughout Southeast Asia and are known for their practicality, fuel efficiency, and affordability.


  1. Underbone

    An underbone motorcycle uses structural tube framing with an overlay of plastic or non-structural body panels and contrasts with monocoque or unibody designs where pressed steel serves both as the vehicle's structure and bodywork. Underbone may also refer to a class of small light motorcycles that use the construction type, known variously as step-throughs or scooters. An underbone cycle may share its fuel tank position and tube framing, along with fitted bodywork and splash guards with a scooter while the wheel size, engine position, and power transmission are like those of larger motorcycles. Underbones are popular worldwide, especially in East Asia and Southeast Asia.
