Honda’s chunky little 50cc Zoomer is a weird cross between a twist-and-go scooter, a Tonka toy and a stripped-bare army Jeep.
It’s easy to ride, nippy and stylish. Honda claim low emissions, it has lots of bungee hooks and there’s lots of storage space, thanks to the skeleton frame and lack of bodywork. They arrived in the UK in 2005, but were first produced in 2003 for the US and Japanese Market. It’s called the Honda Ruckas in America. It’s not a big seller in the UK, most Zoomers are used in race paddocks or strapped to the side of cool surf dudes’ motorhomes.
