The Honda Big Ruckus was a scooter sold in Canada and the USA in 2005 and 2006. It was marketed as a 'full-size' version of the popular 49 cc Ruckus/Zoomer scooter, with a 249 cc engine and seating for two. Unlike the smaller Ruckus, the Big Ruckus included no color options. The 2005 model had yellow tubing with black panels, and the 2006 had silver tubing with black panels.
Distinctive features include a rear seat that folds up to provide a backrest for a solo rider, a hand-lever parking brake, and a linked brake system, where the rear lever also actuates the front brakes.
In Japan the Big Ruckus is known as the PS250 and was in production from 2004 through 2007. While the early models had contrasting colour schemes of painted tubes and black panels, the last models were produced in solid colors only, with a choice of tan, dark green, and black.
