Is the Honda Ruckus the Coolest 49cc Scooter?

Starting at $2,699 – plus additional charges (tax, license, delivery etc.) the 2017 Honda Ruckus is not the cheapest 49cc scooter, but it delivers on fun in a big way. Starting with a liquid-cooled single-cylinder 49cc engine and a one-speed Honda V-matic® automatic transmission, the Honda Ruckus has proven itself to be a popular scooter for years. Now, there is a new color selection red and white.

“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.

It all starts with the Ruckus’ rugged, minimalistic, exoskeletal frame. Minimal bodywork equals minimal hassles. Then there’s the Ruckus’ tough 49cc Honda engine. Plenty of power, and you just push a button to get it started. There’s 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 you’re off while your friends are still waiting for the bus. ”

We expect to test this scooter and many other scooters on a new Autowerkz.TV show which begins shooting sometime in late 2017!
