IF you turn the ignition off while going down the road the clutch is still engaged so will restart., The clutch will not release until some where around 5 to 10 miles per hour. When setting still and the clutch not engaged it will not matter how fast you push the scooter the clutch will not engage with out the engine running.

It's impossible to roll start a scooter with CVT, there may be an exception but I don't know what it is.

Clutch won't spin no matter how fast you roll it. The bell just spins not the clutch. The reason it continues to spin the engine after the ignition is killed is because the centrifugal force keeps the clutch pads in contact with the bell. Once you get below a certain speed(5-10 mph) the clutch springs overcome centrifugal force, you loose that contact, and the clutch disengages. The engine, clutch, belt, and variator all come to a stop. Impossible to practically reengage the clutch without starting the engine again.
