释义

名词

装有踏板的低座小型摩托车。英语“scooter”的音译。

DEFINITION

Noun

A mini motorcycle installed with a low seat and a floorboard. The term is the transliteration of the English word “scooter”.

由来
这类小型的摩托车,据说是在二战之后于意大利生产。由于战后意大利的许多道路遭受破坏,对使用车子或摩托车为代步工具的人们造成许多不便。为此,业者制造了轮子较小、座椅宽敞、低踏板的史古打,在毁坏的道路上仍能轻便地行驶。
  • 史古打在意大利推出后,才陆续传到新马一带。
  • ETYMOLOGY
    Mini motorcycles known as scooters are said to be manufactured in Italy after World War Two. Many roads in Italy were damaged after the war, which inconvenienced drivers and motorcyclists. As such, manufacturers produced scooters with smaller wheels, spacious seats and a low floorboard for people to manoeuvre the damaged roads easily.
  • Scooters were gradually introduced into Singapore and Malaysia after they were launched in Italy.
  • 例句
    由本地公司制造的史古打,已在公路上行驶,这也是唯一“新加坡制造”的史古打。(《联合晚报》,29/9/2015)
    SAMPLE SENTENCE
    Scooters manufactured by the local company are already on the roads, these are also the only “made in Singapore” scooters. (Lianhe Zaobao, 29/9/2015)
