Ruckus 50 top speed?

Since there's so many ex-Ruckus pilots here I figured this was as good a place to ask as any. Broken in and box-stock--without doing any "cheating" like crouching down, running it down a hill or any modifications--what's the top speed on these little buggers with the rider sitting upright? What will they comfortably cruise at?

Depends a lot on your size. I am 6ft, 200 lbs. my 2003 (slower due to different carb if I remember correctly) did 38 max, even with a different variator.
My 2008 could do 38 a little easier right our of the box, but anything over 40 was still unheard of, even with a tail wind.
I am sure if I was 50 lbs lighter, I could have gotten 2-3 mph more.
Just hope you don't live where there are a lot of hills.
