2017 Honda Ruckus on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Ruck and Roll...
Go on, admit it: You can't help but smile when you see the Ruckus®right? And there's no need to feel guilty about that. After all, the Ruckus is one cool little scooter with an extra dose of attitude. Going with an amazingly economical ride doesn't necessarily mean disappear into the crowd, at least not in the case of the scooter that says it allthe Honda Ruckus.
Nothing on two wheelsor fourhas the rugged, minimalist look of a Honda Ruckus. And thats the whole point. The Ruckus is all about riding down your own road in life, doing things your way, on your schedule. But the Ruckus is about way more than just its unique looks.
It all starts with the Ruckus rugged, minimalistic, exoskeletal frame. Minimal bodywork equals minimal hassles. Then theres the Ruckus tough 49cc Honda engine. Plenty of power, and you just push a button to get it started. Theres no hassle with shifting, either; the Ruckus uses a Honda V-matic® automatic transmission. Grab a helmet, maybe toss on a daypack or a messenger bag, and youre off while your friends are still waiting for the bus.
You got a life to live. And the Ruckus is gonna help you live it.
Nothing Looks Like a Ruckus.
The Ruckus is what it is, with nothing to hide. And thats exactly why so many people dig it. Practically no bodywork, rugged steel tube frame, tough rubber floorboard. Its a true urban warrior!
Power to the People.
Nobody builds engines like Honda, and the Ruckus proves it. The liquid-cooled single-cylinder 49cc engine cranks out all the power you need for urban riding, while delivering incredible gas mileage at the same time.
Dont Fuel Around.
Were not kidding. With the Ruckus, youll spend less time filling up and more time riding around townand save some big coin doing it.
