2006 Honda Big Ruckus[edit | edit source]

2006 Honda Big Ruckus

Honda knows the Ruckus was a hit and ups the ante with a bigger, more powerful and meaner-looking version: the Big Ruckus. Powered by a quarter-liter engine with plenty of nerve for both on and off-the-street rides, the 2005 Big Ruckus oozes character.

Its rugged, military looks are complemented by top-notch suspensions, a sturdy steel frame, off-road worthy suspensions, precise fuel injection and electric starting, a fan-cooled radiator and the easy-to-use automatic transmission for even more fun. Add in a 10-way adjustable seat, generous fuel tank and multiple big-bike features for a stunning all-rounder maxi scooter.
