What is the difference between Pocket Bikes and Mini Bikes?

Question by Patrick P: What is the difference between Pocket Bikes and Mini Bikes?
I’ve heard a lot of things about “Pocket bikes” and “Mini bikes” but I’m not sure what the difference is between them (if there is any.) Can someone tell me what the difference is?

Nothing besides most mini bikes are home made.

They are 49cc engine, which means they are not street operale like any other mini bike.

Sure they have headlights and a horn and do 30MPH+

But they have no brake lights
no turn signals
and no title registation
and no where to put a plate.

So they are considerd by law enforcment to be mini bikes.

  1. Semantics, possibly just the difference between the generic and brand names we use all the time. Like the differences between “Band-Aid®” and “bandage”, “Kleenex®” and “tissue”, or “ChapStick®” and “lip balm”.

    Defined in California, both “pocket bikes” and “miniature bikes” are illegal to be operated on public streets.

    And the State of Washington created this entire tutorial dedicated to them.
