Mechanically, it's not much different from the standard Motoped that debuted last year. It still has a 49cc four-stroke thumper pulled from Honda's CRF50, a custom frame, and off-the-shelf mountain bike parts.

Motoped is calling it the Black Ops Edition, and there's a lot more gear included. What's not included is a price, although just the rolling chassis (sans engine) starts at $1,999.
