Motopeds Survival Bike is the Ultimate in Pedal-Power Adventuring

Motorcycles May 19, 2016

Want to go 400 plus miles (650 km) without stopping? That’s the proposition put forward by Motoped with this Survival edition moto. I’m not sure exactly how they figure that, but the give a few more details about it:

“A primary fuel tank plus the added fuel from two optional red side-mounted fuel tanks will take you 250 to 300 miles without a fill-up. That’s a good thing when you’re traveling through the desert on a horse with no name. . .”

These are 49cc bikes, but you can apparently also mount slightly larger bike engines to them. Top speed is 25mph, so they would be mostly city block cruisers, I’m guessing, but on the other hand they are light: 132 pounds. I wonder how they would be on sand, dirt, or climbing mountains?

Of course, the other feature of these is the ability to pedal them, something you can’t do with motorbikes.
