Built by scooter tuning and fabrication company Composimo, the Cafe Risque is something that if you described it to me, I wouldn’t believe it was possible. How do you put cafe racer style into a 50cc scooter and have it look this great? Granted, custom Honda Ruckus builds are not uncommon (and also very, very cool), but here we have something well outside the typical, Japanese “zoomer” aesthetic. It’s utilizing a cafe seat, cafe bars, and loads of performance upgrades and custom fabrication.
Where this project really stands out, for me anyway, is in the harmony of the details. There are both aesthetic and mechanical upgrades here, and everything has been meticulously crafted to work together as a cohesive unit. So many custom projects — whether scooters, cars or motorcycles — are often decorated more than designed. It’s as though the builder is just going from component to component and simply changing things to leave his or her mark on the bike. Sometimes that works well. Yet what we have here is an example of all the details working together for a cohesive design — and that as much as anything else makes this particular Ruckus really special.
It looks really mean on the road:
Sounds great too:
