Where did you get that? I like it. Would probably fit my old scooter. The hand protection is a serious plus.

There is a 50cc Ruckus and a 250cc Ruckus.

45 mph would be for a 50cc going downhill with the rider in a tuck.

A 250cc is a lot faster.

I wonder how gas mileage will be affected by the new shield?

It's a BIG Ruckus 250cc and freeway capable , tops out at 75 if the wind is with you . All that said if you have no luggage and you weigh 140 pounds , it might top out at 80 ?
