Honda Ruckus

Posted in Page 1 on November 30, 2009 by puffine

So I realize that scooters are not everyones cup of tea, however hear me out before you make any conclusions.

The Honda Rukus (a.k.a. Honda zoomer in japan) is a 50cc, 4 stroke, water cooled motor. It has the ability to reach 60km/h straight out of the box, which is more then enough to ride around town.The top speed can be dramatically increased with some key modifications.It costs about $5 to fill up and gets over 100 miles to the gallon, did I mention that it’s dirt cheap to insure? About every part of this thing is customizable, the only thing that limits your variety is the size of your wallet. Depending on where you live and the cost of the rukus included, it can be cheaper then taking public transit. Check out http://www.totalruckus.com.

The GM LS engine is a relatively compact engine design that outputs substantial power compared to its weight. It also lends itself quite nicely to all kinds of swaps. Check out these crazy contraptions all made with the popular LS engine. Watch out for one of these sleepers on the streets!
