I found this post on a website.

Dear 50 cc fans:

As far as i can tell a moped is considered a bicycle with a helper motor in the nutmeg state provided:

a. goes no faster than 30 mph

b. displaces less than 50 cc

c. has an automatic transmission

d. less than 2 brake horse power

e. and after 7/1/97 the need for pedals is deleted from the requirements.

However the operator of this vehicle must possess a valid motor vehicle operators license or a motorcycle license. It would seem then that many 50 cc scooters would qualify under this amended rule.

There is no need for a tag or insurance or emissions testing and i would assume no personal property tax.

Being a bicycle of course they are prohibited on limited access highways and turnpikes.

so i dont need pedals on my ped. Sweet
