    Well they need to think up a new name. Moped is already taken by motor/pedal combo machines.

    it's not a powered bicycle, it's a motorbike. Get over it.
    Absolutely agree - the French made thousands of the things...

    Unfortunately NZTA use "AB (power-assisted pedal cycle)" for what sidecar bob calls a "mo-ped" and the expression "moped" for what Crasher describes - under 50cc, under 50km/h under 2kw...

    Like you sidecar bob I consider a 50cc twist-and-go a motorcycle and that you should have a motorcycle licence to ride it. As for the thinking behind the Yamaha Tricity being registered as a car... Makes one wonder if the whole registration/licencing of small powered two/three wheelers needs to be re-evaluated...

    3. You need a motorcycle license, having a drivers license only required is more friendly to the market.

    If I could make it a moped, its a steal. If it is classed as a motorcycle more $$$$$

    Read the "moped" section of this: Mopeds (classes LA and LB)

    Only if you can add pedals to it to make it go faster...

    Couldn't agree more. It's a fucking stupid name, and the cunting things should need reg wof checks.
