Motorized Bicycles are not considered to be mopeds or motorcycles.
By current MVD practice, motorized bicycles are considered to be bicycles (not mopeds or motorcycles) and are not subject to the titling and registration requirements of the Motor Vehicle Code.

I wonder if that means motorized bicycles are unregulated

If the engine size is less than 50cc and the maximum speed is no more than 30mph then it is unregulated. But the rider must have a valid license or permit. Go over 50cc or 30mph, it looks like it is considered a motorcycle.
