2022 Honda Ruckus: The Quintessential Scooter

Despite its utilitarian looks, the Honda Ruckus has been a hit since it first hit the scene in 2003 under the disguise of the “Honda Zoomer”. Since then, the Ruckus has built a tightly knit community around modifying this capable scooter as it continues to evolve through the years.

The 2022 Honda Ruckus brings a layer of convenience to the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers’ lineup thanks to its easy-to-maintain – and more importantly – easy-to-ride nature.

What makes the Honda Ruckus such an awesome bike is the fact that most North American states/provinces allow this bike to be ridden with a learner’s permit; meaning that it is a perfect first choice for anyone looking to gain experience on two wheels before moving onto a full-sized motorcycle.

The Honda Ruckus putts along with town thanks to its 49cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. Although the engine itself is quite underpowered, what it lacks in umph it makes up for in efficiency – 114 miles per gallon to be exact. Compound this with drum brakes all around, 1.9” travel front fork, 2.6” travel rear single shock, and a low price tag; the Ruckus is a great choice for who want a beginner moped from this year’s lineup.

The 2022 Honda Ruckus starts at $2,899 USD / $3699 CAD

2022 Honda Ruckus Features



The Ruckus has a liquid-cooled engine that offers exactly what you’d expect from a Honda: power, reliability and great fuel efficiency.



One-speed automatic transmission means no shifting ever—not even into park or neutral.



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.



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.
