They are the same thing.
You use the shift kit to move your power output to the right side and use the bicycles gears.

Doubtful bicycle parts will handle a 212cc engine.

If you want to put motorcycle power on something, put it on a motorcycle frame.... with pedals to stay kinda-legal ;-}

That was just an 86cc 4-stroke semi-auto 4-speed engine and it was a rocket.

The point is, all the parts are deigned for motorcycle engines and their power, most bicycles are not.

That MotoPed frame is rated for 250cc if memory serves, but a moot point, your engine wouldn't fit it and it was ~$2500 delivered completely disassembled.

If you are bound and determined to use that engine please put it in a sturdy bikes with great brakes.
