#4 – Honda Ruckus


With its fat tires and brawny frame it’s no wonder Honda’s beefy scooter is a favorite in hipster-friendly urban neighborhoods with their crazy cabbies, crappy pavement, incalculable potholes, and texting pedestrians. But surely the Ruckus (and its Big Ruckus brother) qualifies as multi-purpose beyond getting hipsters to the coffee house. Websites such asTotal Ruckus and blogs likeRuckus Riders demonstrate sincere devotion beyond hipsterians, and YouTube is brimming with videos of guys burning them out, boring them out and riding them off-road. So here’s hoping the distinctive Ruckus continues to prove its worth to real riders besides hipsters. If the hipsters love it too, well, at least they’re using their college degree somehow.
