The 2023 Honda Ruckus: Ruck Out!

Ah, the Honda Ruckus. It’s like a pug on wheels – not the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen, but somehow adorable in its own way. I mean, who doesn’t love a scooter with a name that sounds like it should be wearing a leather jacket and carrying a switchblade? I’m pretty sure the Japanese motorcycle builders just wanted to create a vehicle that looked like it could survive a zombie apocalypse. Well, they nailed it!

With 49cc of pure power and a V Belt automatic transmission, the Ruckus is one of the smallest displacement bikes in the 2023 Honda Lineup and the only one that still makes you feel like a badass everywhere but the freeway.

While others are admiring their own reflection off the gas pump display, you will be rolling your fat tires and 100+mpg off to the urban frontlines. Or off on a quest for the next awesome item to use customizing your very own Honda Ruckus.

The 2023 Honda Ruckus starts at $ 2,899 USD / $ 4,239 CAD.

On this page: we’ve curated specs, features, news, photos/videos, etc. so you can read up on the new 2023 Honda Ruckus in one place.

2023 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.
