in English if you say moto for motorbike we would translate bike they are both abbreviations for the same word

Doesn't "i'm selling a motorcycle" fit better?

as we have no context, "eu estou vendendo uma moto" fits better also in Portuguese.

I agree with Leoroschi. The verb"sell" more appropriately describes, for example, what someone does for a living: "I sell motorbikes". If someone has a single motorbike which they wish to sell, they would say "I am selling a motorbike". If someone were to say "I sell a motorbike", this then raises the question of how many times they sell it?

is motorcycle not '''motocicleta''. a motor is also used in speaking language.
