There are times in your life when owning a scooter instead of a car just makes sense — especially with the price of gas as high as it is right now. The Honda Ruckus (starting at $2,000) has just the right mix of toughness and hipness to make it our absolute favorite. It has a tubular steel frame, oversized double headlights, tough off-road like tires, and a 49cc four-stroke engine with automatic transmission and electric starter. The Ruckus comes in all-black or black with silver and gray camouflage. And since it's a lightweight scooter, you can ride around for weeks with hardly any gas money — and since it's Honda, it will last forever so you can sell it to your little brother when you're done with it.
