Cool little bike. The problem is that for the same $ you can buy a pretty nice used crf 150 or small Yamadog http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Yama...pt=US_motorcycles&hash=item2edd8f5bb5&vxp=mtr and kill the Motoped. If ya want a dirt bike, get a dirt bike. To me ( JMHO ) a motor assisted bicycle is just that. A bicycle with a motor grafted to it. The Motoped is a very small , and under-powered, motorcycle with peddles grafted to it....... Still, it's a cool toy.
