2024 Honda Ruckus: RUCK AND ROLL!

Introducing the 2024 Honda Ruckus…

While a diminutive stature is one of the most noticeable attributes of Honda’s Ruckus, discounting it on those grounds would be a mistake. After all, this character-rich model has launched an entire subculture of scooter customization and group rides. Its exposed frame, dual round headlights, affordable price and ease of use make it a great option for unique around-town transportation, with some owners content to leave it in stock form, while others opt to personalize it to their desired look and application. Either way, the Ruckus is guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes.

The Honda Ruckus doesn’t look like anything else on two wheels because it’s not like anything else on two wheels. A mashup between a scooter, a skateboard, and mini motorcycle, it’s the perfect example of riding your own ride. Plus, it’s a legendary platform for customizing. Tough, minimal, proven, it’s a great way to get around. Because it’s so small and light, it’s a joy to ride in congested urban settings or on places like a college campus. And once you get to where you’re going, its small size lets you park it just about anywhere. The dependable liquid-cooled engine offers awesome fuel efficiency, and with plenty of underseat storage it’s practical too. Two stealthy color choices this year keep it fresh. Once you’ve landed on planet Ruckus, there’s no going back!

DRIVETRAIN

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
One-speed automatic transmission means no shifting ever—not even into park or neutral.

FAT TIRES
The Ruckus is built to be rugged, and its fat tires play a big part. They can handle bad pavement, help give you a smoother ride, and just plain look right on a bike like this too.

STYLE
A STYLE ALL ITS OWN
What you see is what you get. With its minimal bodywork and rugged overall style, nothing on two wheels (or four) looks like a Ruckus.

DUAL HEADLIGHTS
Sure, the dual headlights on the Ruckus look cool, but they also provide plenty of illumination and conspicuity when you’re out on the street. And like the rest of the Ruckus, they’re not hidden by any bodywork or plastic.

CONVENIENCE

ELECTRIC START
Turn the key, press the button and go. Getting started on the Ruckus is that simple. An electric choke makes getting started in cold weather a snap, too.

UNDERSEAT STORAGE
One of the big design elements on the Ruckus is its generous underseat storage area. Skateboard? Backpack? Gym bag? Go ahead—take it with you when you Ruck out.
