I’ve been eyeing up the Onyx RCR and the black tea.
However, I’m also considering the Huck cycles stinger 3000w motorcycle for the sake of easy registration. But, I am leaning towards the black tea because it can do some off-road shit (and frankly, seems more off-road capable than the Onyx) and you can expand the battery pack. The onyx is just sexy, and I can still go off-roading with it, but it doesn’t come with a VIN.
I live in a rural area, and want to navigate these country roads 15 miles to work. When I lived in a city, I would commute by moped and miss it. I also want to get into commuting by battery, and electric cars are substantially more expensive. My problem is, I don’t want a legal grey area, and I want to use the moped to it’s absolute Limit. Living where I do, having the capacity to go over 40mph is awesome, and to have something under 5k that will allow me to do that is sweet. Also, I can cut my commute down by navigating some atv trails, making the black tea a fun way to commute to work, making the black tea more awesome.
The black Tea’s website states that it has to be registered as a moped only. In my state of Pennsylvania, it meets most of the requirements to be street legal(even though, I’m not sure the tires have the DOT stamp). So I wonder if it would be similar to registering a dirt bike as a street legal motorcycle?
Does anyone have any experience registering a higher powered moped to allow you to go vroom vroom legally? Could use some insight.
Thanks y’all. (edited)
