The categories the Motor Warp is covering
a. To define "the Automobiles" and "the Motorcycles"
The Motor Warp defines "the Automobiles and the
Motorcycles" as being "the motor-powered vehicle which runs in the
ground (not running on the orbit)." Therefore, by our
definition, Construction machineries, Agricultural machineries,
Military vehicles, ATV, Snowmobiles, Racing-cars, Racing-karts and
so on are "Automobiles and Motorcycles." However, by our definition,
Railroad-vehicles, Monorails, Lorries are not "Automobiles and
Whether a vehicle belongs to "Automobile" or belongs to
"Motorcycle" depends on the definition shown by the brand which
produced the vehicle. If such a definition isn't shown from the
brand, Motor Warp judges the vehicle's category.
b. To define "the Brands"
The Motor Warp defines "the Brands" as being "trademarks
and names which manufactures the Automobiles and the Motorcycles
regardless of the mass or single-part production." Here, the
Manufacturers, the Factories, the Complete car tuners, the Racing
car constructors, the Developers, the Carrozzerias, the Designers,
and the Projects are "the Brands."
We also link to the related sites, worldwide network and
useful homepages to each brand (including extinct brands).
c. Other categories to link (In the future,)
In the Motor Warp, in addition to "the Brands of the Cars
and the Motorcycles", there are links to Motor shows, Race series,
the public organizations and so on. Links will add depending on
interests of the administrator of the Motor
Warp. Incidentally, each link may sometimes remove without
Our policy of managing the Motor Warp
a. In principle, our managing is a non-business activity.
Motor Warp is a hobby of the administrator and the cooperators.
Specifically, we make an effort to keep our agreement as
- To our readers, the Motor Warp sends all contents of our
server ("motorwarp.com") for free,
- The main purpose of obtaining incomes for the Motor Warp JAPAN
is to secure the upkeep expense of our server. Our income means
will be to introduce some banner-ads in our site and to sell in
part with our personal belongings.
"motorwarp.com" is a server rented by us and "motorwarp" is not a
commercial company's name. The server-renter is substituting for the
possession of "motorwarp.com." Therefore, the information which is
gotten from the NIC does not show the Motor Warp JAPAN.
b. Our stance on linking
If you want to link the Motor Warp, please link for the
destination URL-address to show always at an address-bar of a
browser. Here, you do not have to get our approval. As the reason,
the administrator understands to linking as follows:
- The nature of WWW (World Wide Web) is "the networking of
knowledge by linking."
- Publishing homepages to WWW is able to anticipate to be linked
by someone, that is to agree to the nature.
- For the homepages not to want to link, to limit reading is the
responsibility of the administrator.
We create links based on above understandings. When we understand
that our linking is improper, we stop the link. We should
fulfill responsibility as for the contents contained in the server
of "motorwarp.com." However, as for the contents which are not
contained in the server of "motorwarp.com," we can not accept
- We hope you find it informative. (in Japanese):
c. The copyright

"motorwarp.com" are inhering in the Motor Warp JAPAN. However, the
Motor Warp doesn't have originality except "the name of Motor Warp,
" and "the sentences written by us." Therefore, we don't concern
even if the links like the Motor Warp increase because anyone can
gather a link.

may not announce it.
|Q. How many brands are found in the Motor Warp?
A. It find in the Motor Warp is 1015 automobile's brands and 370
motorcycle's brands (as of January, 2005).
Here, we are
counting in running-number (cumulative, gross) for the dual
(motorcycles and cars) manufacturing, each brand in the enterprise
group and each name before and after name change.
Q. Describe the criteria for classifying "the Motorcycles" and
"the Automobiles" a little more.
A. We call the vehicle to define below "the Motorcycles."
- Motorbikes: Wheels are only on usual going direction line.
- Trikes (3-wheeler): Trikes are Motorbikes-based vehicles. To
usual going direction line, two wheels are in the symmetry for one
- Sidecars: The vehicles which equip utility-space-voiture in
the side of motorbikes.
- ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles): The vehicles using over two
tires, where the tire is balloon tire (low pressure tire).
In the Motor Warp, we link the brands supplying "the Motorcycles"
as "Motorcycle Manufacturer." We link the brand which supplies a
vehicle except "the Motorcycles" in "Automobile Manufacturer." For
example of 3-wheelers, Campagna
T-REX is a Motorcycle (Trike) by the maker's definition. Grinnall Scorpion III is an Automobile by the
judgment of us.
|Q. Why is the encoding UTF-8?
A. It is correctly as much as possible to write brands name in
the of 2 bytes code areas.
|Q. Would you establish a BBS?
A. The administrator wants to establish. However, we do not
discuss to establish. It is difficult for us to response quickly to
the posting at present. And the prime reason, the administrator is
afraid that a reader writes, "The administrator's English is
difficult to understand." and the writing remain at the BBS for a
