2016 Honda Metropolitan Review

2016 Honda Metropolitan on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

More Stylish—and More Fun—Than Ever...

Has there ever been a scooter that’s as cool and as much fun as the Honda Metropolitan? This little two-wheeled wonder has been a favorite for years. So stylish and smart, everybody who sees one instantly falls in love with it. And now, for 2016, the Metropolitan is better than ever. First, there’s the fresh, new style—that you can see for yourself. But what you can’t see is a beauty that’s more than skin deep—the Metropolitan’s new liquid-cooled four-stroke Honda engine. It offers the kind of Honda reliability no other scooter in the class can touch. But we kept the best parts of the Metropolitan too: the practical under-seat storage area, the no-shift automatic transmission, and the fun and freedom that have always been standard equipment on this little two-wheel wonder.


Sharp New Styling

From front to back, the new Metropolitan gets a major makeover. Check out the new handlebar-mounted headlight and instruments, as well as the curvy new bodywork.


New Honda Engine

Big news this year: The Metropolitan gets a 49cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine with fuel injection. Smooth, powerful, super reliable and environmentally conscious, it also has an EPA fuel economy rating of over 100 miles per gallon!*


Practical, Too

The Metropolitan is one of the best urban errand-runners ever. There’s a convenience hook that holds totes and grocery bags, an inner rack that catches your water bottle or other small items, and a full 22 liters of secure under-seat storage that holds a helmet and more.

Sure, the Metropolitan looks sexy, but under those cute curves it also has a Ph.D. in practicality. In fact, when it comes to getting from Point A to Point B, the Metropolitan can do it with a minimum amount of gas, no parking hassle, and a maximum amount of fun.
