    I've been following that thread for a while... Sounds like fun.

    My friend is selling his 50cc Ruckus, and he's right down the street from you. It's heavily modified and actually MOVES.

    I want a Big Ruckus for touring. That's a touring capable machine.

    Cool. I just started looking into Ruckus' and saw one at school yesterday. How do those compare to the Zuma?

    the Zuma is the new Ruckus. Ruckii were called "Zoomers" in Japan. They have now collaborated.

    The Ruckus is a throwback to the first of the scooters: the Cushman. They used to all have bars and shit on them like that.

    the Zuma isn't as heavily supported as the Ruck. There are things for the Ruck that would make your eyes bleed. More accessories than a Barbie doll.

    :werd: I like the way they both look, and the fuel economy will definitely help me. I checked out stuff that could be done to the Zuma, and man! There are freaking 70cc kits and such, even 100cc swaps(Zuma's from other countries) with 124cc kits for them. I'm not really interested in those, but getting to the speed limit quicker is always a definite plus. lol. I'll probably look for stuff that can be done to the Ruckus too.

    I am interested to know what kind of support the scooter has. More support = cheaper parts.

    I've liked the Ruckus ever since I started looking at scooters a few years ago. It's a neat bike.
