My state has weird laws regarding mopeds, is the Vortex 50 a "moped?"
All states have different laws regarding mopeds/scooters. Call your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or Highway Department regarding any "moped" legalities.
My State's Department of Motor Vehicles needs to know some specifications of the Vortex 50 before they can answer my question above, what are some?
The Vortex 50 moped's
MSO/MCO states that it is equipped with a 49cc 2-stroke motor that produces
1.5 brake horsepower and is not capable of more than 30mph. It is also equipped
with an automatic transmission, turn-signals, headlights (low/high with no
off switch), brakelight, tail light, and both front and back brakes. Furthermore,
the Vortex 50 is certified to be compliant with all Federal DOT,
EPA, and California CARB regulations. Thus, the Vortex 50 is Street
Legal in all 50 Sates!
I have an RV, is the Vortex 50 too heavy to lift?
The Vortex 50 is not very heavy compared to most adult-sized scooters, however we still recommend that you buy the Tilt-n-Load moped carrier (Item# 013-70-1001) . It makes the job of loading and unloading a snap.

I had an old moped that I had to "pre-mix" the oil and the gas together in a gas can before I could pour it into the gas tank- Do I have to hassle with that again with the Vortex 50?
No, you pump regular gasoline into the gas tank and the Vortex 50 does the rest! It's a "No-Brainer!"
