Wonder what all the ruckus is about when it comes to the Honda Ruckus? There are probably some folks (like those born into royalty) that will never get it. But for the rest of us, the Ruckus is a breath of fresh air—a rugged, minimalist scooter that you don’t have to polish like grandma’s silver, and that doesn’t need a staff of servants to keep it running. Best of all, you don’t need a trust fund to afford one, either.
It all starts with the Ruckus’ tough, tubular frame. Minimal bodywork equals minimal hassles. Then there’s the Ruckus’ dependable 49 cc Honda engine. Plenty of power, and you just push a button to get it started. There’s no hassle with shifting, either; the Ruckus uses a Honda V-matic® automatic transmission. Brush your teeth, grab your daypack or messenger bag, and you’re on your way—while your friends are still waiting for the bus or some rideshare driver.
Maybe it’s nice to live on an estate out in the English countryside. But for real-world transportation, we’ll take a Honda Ruckus every time.
