Zuma if you want to modify the stock engine - 70cc kit, pipe, big carb, etc - they can do 60mph or better and wheelie most of the way there (a mechanic friend has a 2-stroke Vino, same motor, and with a big carb and a pipe on the stock cylinder it'll manage both the wheelies and the 60mph parts).

Ruckus if you want to swap the motor - there's tons of info out there on swapping in either Zuma 2-strokes or bigger GY6 150cc 4-strokes. Just make sure you upgrade to disk brakes, too, as the stock little drums are underpowered even for the stock, slow, 4-stroke 50cc motor. The Ruckus crowd has even taken to turbocharging their motors now.
