Ruckus Scooter
By W. Joe Smith(Owner), May. 31, 2009
Great scooter! Very reliable. This rugged scooter is made with tough looks, and it backs it up all the way. It's got a cool image. No plastic molding or flimsy attached parts here - just the real deal. It's an eye catcher. I'm a grown man weighing about 180 lbs and have no problem taking it to... Read Full Review

Ride and Comfort are great for a tall person.

It's Nice!
By Wheelworks(Owner), Jun. 1, 2009
All that I could hope a 50cc scooter to be minus the storage. Takes me to 37 mph effortlessly and 43+ mph with a little effort.



Great thing about this scooter is that in rush hour the scooter keeps up with traffic easily and in light traffic, while it is a bit slow, it does not hold up traffic b... Read Full Review

2009 Honda Ruckus 50
By Patrick(Owner), Oct. 31, 2009
My official opinion of the 2010 Honda Ruckus 50cc scooter is, "come on, Honda, are you kidding me... an MSRP of $2149 for this?". My personal opinion is, "Alright, Honda, you tried (sorta), now I can make it better myself".



My primary dislikes of this scooter are the underpo... Read Full Review
