  • Honda Zoomer


    The Zoomer, designation NPS50, is a scooter 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 shares similar motor and drivetrain components with the CHF50. 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 that the Ruckus returns in EPA tests.

  • Honda CT50 Motra


    The Honda Motra is a minibike produced in 1982–3 for the Japanese domestic market. Honda marketed the vehicle as a heavy-duty recreation bike with a large load capacity. The Motra has a distinctively rugged appearance, with angular steel tube and panel framework supporting large racks fore and aft. The utility/military style is emphasized by a lack of decorative chrome, and a solid yellow or green paint scheme for all bodywork and wheels. The Motra's 3-speed gearbox is coupled with a second stage to provide the same 3-speeds with a lower final ratio for low-speed off-road travel in steep terrain. The Motra's CT50 designation is a slight exception in Honda nomenclature in that 'CT' does not indicate a mechanical family of bikes. It is distinct from the CT70, which is an ST-series bike for the US and Canadian market, and from the CT50/CT90/CT110 Trail Cubs, which are an offshoot of the Super Cub bikes. The Motra's CT50 designation is a re-use of the Trail Cub CT50 designation from 1968. In 2004 Honda resurrected the Motra's style, but not off-road utility, with the PS250 Big Ruckus scooter.

  • Honda Gyro


    Honda Gyro Canopy The Honda Gyro is a family of small, three-wheeled motorcycles sold primarily in Japan, and often used for delivery or express service. These vehicles are tilting three-wheelers. They combine a tricycle's stopped & low-speed stability with a leaning main-body for stability while turning at speed. They resemble a scooter with a small hinged rear pod containing the engine and two drive wheels. This particular variation was developed and patented by George Wallis of G.L.Wallis & Son in Surbiton, Surrey in 1966. It was first marketed in the failed BSA Ariel 3 of 1970, then licensed to Honda. Honda has built seven models with this configuration. The first Stream was introduced in 1981, followed closely by three other personal transport versions, the Joy, Just, and Road Fox. All were short-lived, but the cargo-oriented Gyro line begun in 1982 found a ready market, with all three variants still in production in 2015. These vehicles were all powered by a 49 cc two-stroke engine up until March 2008 when the two-stroke engines of Gyro X and Gyro Canopy were changed to four-stroke engines and the production of Gyro Up was discontinued.
