Motorized Moped Bike

Please note that these are ILLEGAL in New York City. NYC Administrative Code says, in pertinent part:

Ҥ 19-176.2. Motorized scooters. a. For purposes of this section, the
term “motorized scooter” shall mean any wheeled device that has
handlebars that is designed to be stood or sat upon by the operator, is
powered by an electric motor or by a gasoline motor that is capable of
propelling the device without human power and is not capable of being
registered with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. For the
purposes of this section, the term motorized scooter shall not include
wheelchairs or other mobility aids designed for use by disabled persons,
electric powered devices not capable of exceeding fifteen miles per hour
or “electric personal assistive mobility devices” defined as
self-balancing, two non-tandem wheeled devices designed to transport one
person by means of an electric propulsion system.
b. No person shall operate a motorized scooter in the city of New
c. Any person who violates subdivision b of this section shall be
liable for a civil penalty in the amount of five hundred dollars…”

This is the same law used to outlaw SEGWAYs from NYC streets. I WAS going to buy one, and then decided to look up the law first…

Buyer beware - they may also be illegal in your jurisdiction. If you can’t use a SEGWAY, you PROBABLY can’t use these either…
