The Money is now a 125cc with a larger wheel base than the original Mini Trail/ Monkey 50cc.

Would be great of the Cub and Money could be legally ridden on bicycle paths.

Neither are freeway legal for commuting are they?

You need 150cc for freeways in California, I believe. I wonder if you could put a big bore on it, and then go on the freeway. Not that I'd want to - I can't see them being much faster than 55-60. The Monkey looks to use a lot of Grom parts, so hopefully there are interchangeable bits there - I think that's why it's so much bigger than the old 50cc Monkeys.

Per the CHP (https://www.chp.ca.gov/programs-serv...lar-vehicles):

A motor-driven cycle is a motorcycle with a motor that displaces less than 150cc per CVC 405.

A Grom isn't legally allowed on California freeways.

If you claimed it was big bore and therefore legal I bet you'd get a ticket for tampering with emissions equipment
