Living with the Honda; its cool, people ask about it, and guys with huge baggy pants, look enviously at you, but not having ANY real storage maybe an issue for some.  It runs on fumes, but isn't so slow that you can't keep up with the traffic.


If you’ve already got a boring practical scooter, and you want to move to the way-out Ruckus, you’ll need to seriously think about having to carry everything around with you. Is that worth it to be cool, for many it maybe, for me it was not (worth it for me. ED (but I do have some issues)) The Ruckus is a blend of the latest styling trends mixed with features from the beginning of scooters. Drums brakes and no storage – camo paint, and liquid-cooled four-stroke motor. It is a mix that although not perfect does a damn good job of doing what it does!

I passed my compulsory basic training in London on a Zoomer (Ruckus by it's European name). I loved it. It has a bit of a cult (yes that's an l not an n) following in London, with a lot of graphic designers and creative types riding them because they look impractically cool and carefree.

It always makes me smile when I see one (the bike not the rider).

In the UK, they cost around £2300, which is a bit of a bloody cheek if you ask me (there's about USD $1.5 to £1).

What's the justification for the price difference Honda?
