In the world of scooters, one new creation hopes to outdo the competition before the game has started.

Game Over, the latest customized Honda Ruckus from the brother team at Rucksters in Arcadia, was introduced for the first time Thursday, after more than three years of design and transformation.

The leather saddle on “Game Over” is a one-of-a-kind work by Danny Gray with a price tag of $1,000.

“We have been putting all our blood and sweat into this bike,” said Sonny Truong, the lead technician at Rucksters. “We named it because once people see it, it’ll be game over. It’s going to be hard to top this bike.”

Game Over is a complete tear-down and rebuild of a 2011 Honda Ruckus, which was donated for the project by Temple City Power Sports. In its finished configuration, the scooter is powered by a Yamaha Zuma 200 cc 4-stroke engine with a Garrett Turbo charger. Its hot rod paint theme is complemented by a hand-tooled leather seat. The bike rolls along on Weld Racing and Daytona Bells wheels, with front and rear Brembo P32 caliper brakes.

  1. How many jigawatts? on

    Wait a minute… they took a Honda scooter and put a Yamaha engine on it?

    Also, is it so fast that it can go back in time? Apparently, it took three years to design and build, but it’s a 2011 model?

    It took 3 years to “DESIGN” and build also the scooter has been in their shop for months actually being built. Sadly tho even if it hits 88 it wont go back in time
