Is this engine still good as put on a new trike? It was stored for a long time and has 25 hrs on it. What's the downsides of using this engine and expected reliability issues due to long storage

It all depends on how it was stored.
If it was "Pickled" and stored in a controlled enviroment, it might have a chance.
If it has been sitting above a concrete floor without any heat, The outcome may be in question.
22 years is a long time and a lot of service bulletins ago!

That might be an engine that you may want to give a pass. You could be in for a complete overhaul. About $12K
Lots of SB's and dried "O" rings.
