go on totalruckus.com, it's the ruckus version of honda-tech. (alot of users here are on there, too.)

but to answer your questions, in most states you'll need a valid driver's license to legally operate the moped. You wouldn't be able to take it out on the highway since there's usually a 150cc min. to ride on the highway.

but yeah, check out totalruckus.com!

Totalruckus is the spots for anything ruckus related. Any kind of Honda Ruckus Part and mods can be found there.

I think you need a M1 license for a scooter. I passed my DMV M1 test on my ruckus.

As for the highway riding you need a 230 or 250cc, i cant remember. Me and a buddy got busted and yell by the Harbor Patrol for trying to cross the Vincent Thomson Bridge. They told us that we need at less a 250cc to ride on a highway.

For missouri, you only need a helmet and a regular Driver's License to operate a 50cc scooter on the public roadways (except for highways). No registration, no plates, no inspection, no tags, no insurance, no hassle. Anything over 50cc need the same things as a motorcycle I believe (M endorsement, insurance, plates, tags, etc. etc.).

The Ruckus is a "motorcycle". It is a smaller motorcycle also known as a "motor-driven cycle".
CVC 400, CVC 405. It is not a "motorized bicycle" or "moped". CVC 406.

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displa…

Class M1. A two-wheel motorcycle or a motor-driven cycle.
Authority to operate a vehicle included in a class M1 license may be granted by endorsement on a class A, B, or C license upon completion of an appropriate examination.
