Is “Ruckusized” a word?
I can assure you that no Photoshopping was involved with the above picture.
For a long time, I’ve been saying the Honda Ruckus, and the guys and gals who ride them, represent the future of scooter rallies. As with old-skool Vespas 30 years ago, Honda’s minimalist scooter is a canvas upon which one can apply a personalized vision of performance, style and general bad-assness.
And since a Ruckus (aka Zoomer) is a Metropolitan (Jazz, etc. outside the U.S.) with fat tires and no bodywork, it was only a matter of time before people started applying Ruckus modification and tuning techniques to Honda’s faux Vespa.
