A moped is a bicycle that is powered by a small motor (typically sized around 50cc engine, topping out at speeds around 30mph), where pedals are used to start the motor, which can power the bike to move at faster speeds than just man powered peddling.

A motocross bicycle (or a BMX bike) is simply a bicycle which ONLY uses man powered peddling to move. With a tighter and more rigid frame than regular bicycles, and with off-road tires, BMX bikes are typically used for racing across motocross trails and performing stunts.

And one last thing, motocross bicycles are NOT motocross motorcycles (motorcycles do NOT have peddles). Motocross motorcycles (better known as dirt bikes) are equipped with greater suspension, off-road tires, and larger motors (anywhere from 80cc-250cc sized engines), solely being powered by the engine.
