Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

It's a motorcycle.check your state laws. In north carolina if it has gears that you have to shift then it's a motorcycle. Hope this helps.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

it's a scooter.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

By law...Motor Driven Cycle in CA.

It's not a scooter, and it doesn't have pedals.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

Motorcycle someplaces, moped in others. Depends on your state's laws

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

manual clutch/gearshifter + non-stepthru + big wheels

+ not a dirtbike = motorcycle.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

The Ohio Revised Code defines a moped, or motorized bicycle, as any vehicle with two tandem wheels or one front and two rear wheels which is capable of being pedaled and is also equipped with a helper motor. The helper motor may not:

have a piston displacement of more than 50 cubic centimeters

produce more than one brake horsepower

propel the vehicle at a maximum speed greater than 20 mph on a level surface.

from the wiki

MB5 is probably a motorcycle in ohio

No, you can't. It's a motorcycle. Besides, I'm looking at that one you probably see on craigslist, seeing that we're in the same area. Let me buy it ;_;

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

What's the deal with MB5's anyway? With all of the 50cc motorcycles out there, what makes these stand out?

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

Russell Cullen /

i think the short answer to that is that they're gorgeous (the black ones anyway). also, they were apparently only imported to the US for a year or two.

You can register pretty much anything in Michigan as a moped. And yeah what are you talking about with "all of the 50cc motorcycles out there"? There really aren't any in the states :/ people didn't find them practical.

I call mine a mopedicycle....

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

I dunno, maybe I phrased that wrong. I've seen other 50cc motorcycles, but they don't seem to get the love the MB5s get. I have 1.5 Suzuki A50 motorcycles, which could actually come with pedals in some places! Maybe they're too enduro-ey, but I prefer the look rather than MB5s.

ThAt blue Suzi is awesome Adam! Seems to me like it would be more rare than an mb5 though, at least I've never seen of around here. I assume that the mb5 gets more love because it's more common, it's a Honda, and it has a decent amount of performance upgrade optios.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

No but there is only a handfull of 50s that shift. I think one of the more popular bikes in the past was the mb5 and they still are today. second seems to be maybe an ar80. other than that, not too many mentions on here.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

I would rather have a dt50

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

I don't know, I saw one today, and chased him down, cool bikes, I would call it a motorcycle.

50 cc motorcycle

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

I was thinking a little more about this when I excitedly told my non moped riding friend I saw an mb5 today. He was like, whats that? I told him its like if a moped and an 80s motorcycle had a kid, and the motorcycle was a good father to it.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

Jimmy Cincinnati /

I had an MB5 and an RX50. I vote RX50 any day.

MB5's are dogs. That RX50 would smoke it and is shares alot of stuff with YSR's.

Re: honda mb5 moped or motorcycle?

MB5 is definitely still a motorcycle TECHNICALLY in CT.

This is solely due to it's HP output. Either way, I ride mine like a moped and if anyone asks it's 49cc... of course it's a moped.
