I see. In that case, I'm pretty sure it will have to be registered to ride it on the street, and you'll need a title to do that.
It's a different animal from a motor bicycle because, since it doesn't have pedals, it's self propelled. In FL and most other states, any self propelled vehicle is considered a motor vehicle.
Still, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to title it, but a lot of times that's going to be a expensive and time consuming proposition.
One problem you could face getting a title is if it turns up as stolen, or having a old lien against it.
