Its a Blast
By Indiana Dave(Owner), Oct. 25, 2008
Come from the 53 year old male I can say that the Ruckus is a great little scooter. I have 500 miles on mine now and have enjoyed every minute of it.

Its a go... Read Full Review

By Dave Voyles(Owner), Oct. 25, 2011

Still, they charged me $700 + to rebuild the engine. We have another Rukus that they said to bring in and have checked for a loose nut o... Read Full Review
