    I read about this scooter. It's suppose to be fairly fast.

    It's got a cool starting system. It reverses the polarity on the stator to start the engine. It'll take a beating, cause it's a Honda. Other than that I liked the 2-strokes better. Honda went through great lengths to make it very hard/imposible to modify the motor. The 50cc Rukus goes about 30+/- 3mph. It also accelerates slower than the Elite SR. The Yamaha Zuma goes about 40mph and is a better dirt-scooter ,if that's what you want. Plus the Zuma can be easily modified to go MUCH faster, around 70+mph!

    Gixxer11, thanks! I wasn't aware of the Zuma. Something utilitarian about the Ruckus though...
