A moped is a motorized two-wheeled vehicle subject to local speed regulations. Typically, mopeds are restricted to 30-35 mph (about 50-55 km/h). Some localities require pedals, thus making them hybrid transport using both human power and machine power.

In the United Kingdom the term "Moped" describes any low powered motorcycle with an engine capacity of less than 50 cc.

Mopeds are like motorcycles and motorized scooters.
