Any repossession will negatively impact your credit. Organizations using the credit report do not differentiate between voluntary and non-voluntary. Rather, the organizations see that you were not responsible with credit and what you purchasd needed to be taken away.

I have a car for 2 yrs now and is not fully paid but i want to return it will returning it affect my credit?
That is called voluntary repossession. You will be required to pay the difference in what the lender sells the vehicle for and the balance on the note after that amount is applied to the loan. You did avoid repossession fees by voluntarily turning the car in. Your credit will also show this repossession for 7 years.
Can you just give your vehicle back to the lender if you can no longer afford payments and are totally upside down on the loan?
Yes, it is called a voluntary repossession. It is not much different then when they would come take it except you will save on the costs associated with a normal repossession. You will still owe the difference between your loan balance and what they dispose of the car for, so you are much better off trying to sell it privately if you can.
What will happen when a loan on a motorcycle has been defaulted and the finance company will not reprocess it?
The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.
