A transmission or gearbox is the gear system that transmits mechanical power from the engine on your moped to the rear wheel.

Depending on the type, some transmissions can have multiple gear ratios. Multiple geared transmissions are typically automatic, meaning the transmission will shift on it's own, but, while rare in the United States, a manual shift transmission can be found on some mopeds.

Included in the transmission on some mopeds is a variator setup allowing for continuously variable shifting.
