The Zoomer, designation NPS50, is a motorscooter developed by Honda and introduced in Japan and America in late 2002 for the 2003 model year; in Canada and the USA, the scooter is marketed as the Ruckus. The Zoomer differs from more traditional scooters with its rugged design, including fatter tires with deeper tread and a skeletal frame lacking an enclosed storage compartment. The NPS50 share similar motor and drivetrain components with the CRF50.

The Zoomer sold in European countries features a compact, single point programmed fuel injection (PGMFI) system, consisting of a single fuel injector, a different fuel pump arrangement, and an oxygen sensor fitted just before the exhaust silencer.

Honda claims the Ruckus returns 114 miles per US gallon (2.06 L/100 km; 137 mpg-imp) in EPA tests.[2]

Due to its design speed being greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), multiple US states classify it as a motorcycle or "motor-driven cycle" and subsequently require a motorcycle license, registration plate, and insurance coverage for operation.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
