One of the newest fad is spreading so fast and causing one HELLUVA Ruckus! We ran across these cool bikes also at the Revue Show in LA a few weeks back. Tonight we had the chance to hang out with some cool Honda Ruckus owner tonight, most of them are on www.totalruckus.com
Again that's why we love the world wide web, what better way to meet owners and find out info.
Its really starting to pop up here in the Hawaiian Islands. People usually take a double look and ask themselves what the heck are those things! Some what a cross of the "putt putt" from the 70s and a Honda Aero that's was stripped of its body. They don't sound like a bunch of bees like the mopeds we have come to know, but sound more like the moped just grew up with more deep tone to it, sort of like a mini Harley.
Its made by Honda and called a Ruckus. Is it a moped or scooter? Its registered as a scooter and has licence plates. When its stock you wouldn't think much of it. But add a few thousand dollars and what you have is one Helluva Ride. Tossing all the plastics, lowering the seats, custom paint jobs, engine swap carb and exhaust for more HP, and most of all what gives it that stance and gangster look, you cant getaway not stretching it a few more inches in the rear and slamming it with a 7 inch wide wheel in the rear. Sounds pretty simple but when you look at these modified bikes each one has its own personality ands style to it, you can see the build were well executed and attention to detail was into check.

Being an car guy, you get influenced very easily after a night of hanging with these guys. I'll just have to get one soon! I have owned my fare share of 2 wheeled transportation back in the days from PUCH's, Spree's Aeros, YSR 50s. but these are by far sick!
We like to thank the 808 Ruckus guys and the guys at Wrench Werks for one cool night!
Come down to the show on June 6 and check these Helluva Rides out. If you like these Rides please place a vote on your favorite in our rides section. Who knows maybe a Ruckus might win the Best of Show
