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.
“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.
