Post Sale Update: this Ruckus sold for $1,151 after 13 bids on Goodwill.


The Honda Ruckus is a very unique modern scooter which combines distinctive styling, a CVT transmission, and excellent fuel economy (114 mpg) to become a popular in-town runabout. Here’s an example with just 660 miles that’s been donated to a Goodwill, so you can feel good about your purchase. With that said, did you know that the Goodwill online shop is now in an auction format?

The model designation is NPS50, and it’s known as the Zoomer in Japan. They’ve become an oddly popular platform for customization, with owners spending thousands of dollars to stretch out the frame and even install aftermarket motors with three times the displacement. If you want to keep it practical, Chase Harper will sell you Ruckus-specific luggage like this under the seat bag or these saddlebags.

This example is claimed to be in “great working condition” with “very light minimal wear from use.” Find it for sale in Charlotte, Michigan with bidding up to $1,000 here on Goodwill.
