2016 Honda Ruckus

Rugged Runabout

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: its tough 49 cc Honda engine also gets awesome mileage. And riding couldn’t be more simple: its Honda V-Matic automatic transmission makes for no-shifting, seamless power in and out of traffic. Its electric starter means you just turn a key, push a button, and you’re outta there. So forget about that suit-and-tie world. There’s plenty of time for that later. Right now, it’s time to get on a Honda Ruckus and Ruck out on the rugged side of life.

Standard Features

  • 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.
  • MAKE YOUR OWN STYLE: 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.
  • LIQUID-COOLED ENGINE: The Ruckus’ liquid-cooled engine offers exactly what you'd expect from a Honda: power, reliability and great fuel economy.
  • AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: One-speed automatic transmission means no shifting ever—not even into park or neutral.

Warranty

  • One year, transferable limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan
