Recently I've noticed a surge in the number of pocketbikes around here (Philadelphia). Seems like a lot of people are using them to zoom around the city. I'm not too familiar with pocketbikes ... what is the most (mph wise) you can squeeze out of one of those little buggers? The reason why I ask is unless otherwise posted, the speed limit in Center City Philadelphia is around 25 mph. Of course there are a lot of people that ignore that speed limit and drive a lot faster. If these pocketbikes can do around 35 mph then they can hold their own with most city traffic, but if they can't break 25 mph then I wonder why someone would get a pocketbike when they could get a Vespa or similar scooter for about the same amount of money. Anyway I think they look cool, I just don't know a lot about them. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
