GOES EVERYWHERE YOU GO…

2018 Honda Metropolitan Review on Total Motorcycle:

Often it seems we live in a virtual world, where everything is just a mouse click or an app away. Still, sometimes you need to get analog self from one place to another, like school, work, the café or a friend’s house. And that’s where the Honda Metropolitan comes in. In a point-and-click world, you just point it where you want to go, click on your helmet, and before you know it you’re there—with no worries about traffic congestion, parking hassles, and high fuel prices. Plus, you’ll have a blast just getting around.

In fact, the worse traffic gets, the more the Metropolitan makes sense. Sure, it looks cute, but underneath that curvy bodywork, it’s pure Honda. With a liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, it offers the kind of reliability no other scooter in the class can touch. Ease of use? You get a no-shift automatic transmission—just turn the key. Press a button for the electric starter, and you’re on your way. Practical? Check out the lockable underseat storage space, perfect for grocery runs. But the real genius behind a Metropolitan isn’t the way it solves so many of your transportation problems. It’s how much you’re just going to love riding it.

Make A Style Statement.

The Metropolitan just looks like it’s going to be fun, and it sure is. There’s something about its classic, curving scooter shape that’s both practical and inviting. Check out the handlebar-mounted headlight and instruments, and for 2018, two great new paint colors.

Fuel Injected, Fuel Economy!

Under that classic scooter bodywork, the Metropolitan uses a 49cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine with fuel injection. Smooth, powerful, super reliable and environmentally conscious, it also gets over 100 miles per gallon!**

It’s All About Solutions.

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.

 

Over the years, the Honda Metropolitan has achieved the status of classic scooter—and rightfully so, as fun styling along with a 50cc fuel-injected four-stroke engine have kept this little icon on the favorites list. There’s a locking, 22 liter under-seat storage area large enough to stow a helmet and also an inner storage bin that can hold a 1-liter bottle, plus a larger convenience hook to secure a bag. With easy-to-operate features, affordable price and operating costs, plus loads of Honda quality and reliability, the Metropolitan turns short hops into big fun.
