Was it a met2? A met1 will outrun a ruckus from a stand still but both only run about 40 from the factory, I've seen some wonders do mid 40s (and some do mid-high 30s)I think the Geniune 2-stroke 50 goes 50 mph tops. My Metropolitan with the same engine as the Ruckus has a top speed of 35 mph indicated on level ground, no wind. If I were to get another small scooter, it would probably be the new Hooligan 170i when it comes out in a few months. It should do 70mph since the Buddy with the same engine does that.
