Specifications of license M

Hello,

As you know, all holders of driving license B also have a license M automatically.

I was curious about what this M license allowed you to drive so I checked all the information about it online in the official websites.

No specifications at all, basically it just says something like "small motorcycles", but what the hell does it mean small?

In all other categories like B, A1, A, etc. they specify the maximum weights of the vehicules, as well as the maximum power they can have or the cc.

However, nothing specified at all for category M.

I went to the office of the traffic authority in Zurich to ask about it. they could just told me "very very small motorcycles".
Then I replied.. good, can I have with my M license a really small motorcycle with 500cc ? They replied me "noooooo not so powerful"
Then I replied "so, which is the power/speed/weight limititation?"
They couldn't answer.
Then I asked, "Can I have a really low power small motorcycle, weighting 1000 KG?"
They answered "Nooo not so heavy!!" but no clue what is the maximum weight.

Of course I know what kind of vehicules this license is intended for, for those really small motorcycles, ok, fine, but why aren't there specifications as for the rest of vehicules? You could drive many different kinds of vehicules due to the lack of specification.

Does anyone know more details about it?

Anyway, they should also specify somehow the maximum power and weight.

A quick look round the internet shows the category is something like mopeds or those motorini things.

Yes, that's what I know, however no definition of what kind of vehicule is that... I could say a 600 cc is a mofa..
