Motorized Bicycle – A motorized bicycle, motorbike, or cycle motor is a bike with an attached motor and transmission used either to power the bike unassisted, or to assist with pedaling.  Since it always retains both pedals and a discrete connected drive for rider-powered propulsion, the motorized bicycle is in technical terms a true bicycle, albeit a power-assisted one.  However, for purposes of licensing and registration requirements, the type may be legally defined as a motor vehicle, motorcycle, moped, or a separate class of hybrid vehicle.

A motorized bicycle has an attached motor to facilitate the operation of the bike.  Some motorized bikes are intended to be used without pedaling, while other types allow you to use both the pedals and the motor during a trek.  A motorized bicycle has multiple advantages whether it is powered by gas or by electric via a rechargeable battery.
