I think it depends on the appearance of the scooter as well. Vespa/Retro style scooters seem to be less respected. Probably due to the assumption that they're only 50cc scooters that are barely street legal.
On the road I don't think it's just large vs small I think it's high vs low power. Respect being determined by your engine output.
