2016 Honda Ruckus Review
2016 Honda Ruckus on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Nothing on two wheels—or four—has the rugged, minimalist look of a Honda Ruckus. And that’s 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: its tough 49cc Honda engine also gets awesome mileage. And riding couldn’t be more simple: its Honda V-matic® automatic transmission makes for no-shifting, seamless power in and out of traffic. Its electric starter means you just turn a key, push a button, and you’re outta there. So forget about that suit-and-tie world. There’s plenty of time for that later. Right now, it’s time to get on a Honda Ruckus and Ruck out on the rugged side of life.
Lean, Mean, and Ready to Ride
You can’t judge a Ruckus bike by its cover, because it doesn’t have one. Instead, we gave the Ruckus a minimalist design for that urban warrior look.
Plenty of Grunt
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.
Awesome Fuel Economy
We’re not kidding. With the Ruckus, you’ll spend less time filling up and more time riding around town—and save some big coin doing it.
Life’s More Fun When you Start a Ruckus!
2016 Honda Ruckus www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Look Close: There’s Plenty to See.
Sure, the Ruckus’ unique style makes this scooter stand out. The dual headlights. Its oversize tires. The active seating position. The low seat and step-through design. If it looks bombproof, that’s because it is. And if you understand how less can be more, you’ll see that the Ruckus offers more than many of the scooters out there.
