GO AHEAD. START A RUCKUS!
2019 Honda Ruckus:
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 all—the Honda Ruckus.
The Ruckus keeps it simple and never lets you lose sight of what’s most important: having fun.
It all starts with the Ruckus’ tough, minimalist, tubular frame. And at the center is a dependable 49cc Honda engine with a healthy dose of power. All you need to get started is press a button, twist the throttle and go. That’s because the Ruckus also features a Honda V-Matic® automatic transmission.
So hop on. And let the fun begin.
Looks Tough, Rides Smooth.
Forget about a bunch of PR propaganda: the Ruckus is what it is, with nothing to hide—what a breath of fresh air! Practically no bodywork, rugged steel tube frame, tough rubber floorboard. And built to survive in today’s world.
Not Just Tough—Powerful, Too.
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.
Fuel Efficient and Then Some.
Who needs an electric car or a hybrid when your Honda Ruckus gets such great fuel efficiency? Add in the potential to save on parking too and this awesome scooter can pay for itself in no time.
