What's the prefix "service:vehicle" good for ? Does it add any information ? Why not just use motorcycle:* bicycle:* car:* (etc.) as a prefix ?
Also check Namespace and change the meaning of a tag already in use

How does it fit with existing tagging schemes ?
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/service%3Avehicle%3Amotorbike

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!

Compare with
shop=motorcycle

This adds another different syntax

to the already existing mess.
And it's not really designed following the KISS principle.
