Tucson’s Motorized Bike Laws

While looking up crime statistics and flood plane data for Tucson, I came across a PDF file on the TPD’s website that quickly highlights the laws concerning motorized bicycles. Interestingly, you have to keep the bike under 20 miles per hour to avoid licensing, insurance, and emissions inspection and the engine has to be smaller than 48 cubic centimeters if using gas or 750 watts (1 horse power) if using electric. Basically, no peddling fast down hills and you’ll be OK with the police.
